Adobe Rancho Cooking Class
Join FJMA for a special one-day cooking class, featuring delicious dishes inspired by the Rancho life at the Moraga Adobe.  The class will be led by local chef and owner of the Epicurian Exchange, Charlie Vollmar. Date and time to be announced.

Fandango Benefit for the Moraga Adobe
The social life of the early settlers like the Moraga Family centered on Fandangos, celebrations of music, dance, and good company hosted by the Californio families.  The Fandangos at the Moraga Adobe were especially anticipated, and would attract families from great distances to come and enjoy.

This year, FJMA will host our first Fandango Benefit to recapture this tradition.  The event will be on the evening of Saturday, September 13th.  

The elegant venue for this benefit will be the Frank Lloyd Wright house in Orinda, not normally open to the public. 

Join us Saturday, September 13th 2014 for a really fun evening!
