Chef Mateo defines his cuisine as "comida natural," and bases his recipes on his morning ritual of shopping for what is freshest, most fascinating and flavorful at Sonoma’s farmers markets.
Stop by his booth at these very same markets – it’s actually a mini kitchen, anchored by a professional Wolf range outfitted with wheels – and find his signature Yucatán tamales stuffed with slow-roasted suckling pig, Rosie organic chicken, CK Lamb, roasted local vegetables and Bodega Bay goat cheese, then steamed in banana leaves. The recipes have been passed down from generations of the Granados family, yet chef Mateo updates them for today’s tastes, using Sonoma’s best olive oil instead of lard in the masa and other modern touches.
Relax at the communal picnic tables underneath his colorful tent, and savor true restaurant-caliber specialties like made-to-order huevos rancheros layered with thick tostada chips and free-range eggs scooped with creamy slow-cooked beans, or salted cod hash topped in a fried Triple T duck egg, Two Rock Valley cheese, capers, a splash of chef Mateo’s El Yuca Mayan habañero tomato salsa, and a salad of frisée, lamb's ear, pickled onion and radish.
For a refreshing complement, chef Mateo’s handcrafted agua frescas are bright, fresh sips in seasonal blends such as Love Farm's organic strawberries and Dragonfly Floral's rose petals; Gayle Sullivan's Dry Creek peaches with Armenian cucumber, or Tierra Vegetables' watermelon with fresh mint and lime from White Crane Springs Ranch.
A farmer’s market meal with chef Mateo is as fun as it is delicious, as you meet new and old friends (many guests make breakfast here a weekly tradition), amid the vibrant setting of a bustling community gathering of art, food and music.
