Pauli Halstead


Pauli Halstead began her culinary career in 1973 at a tiny vegetarian restaurant, Ma Goodness, in Berkeley, California.  In 1975, she put her name on the window of Pauli’s Café at the corner of Fillmore and Washington Streets in San Francisco.  Pauli’s was one of those wonderful neighborhood restaurants for which San Francisco is famous, and it soon became the place to have a delicious week-end brunch. Eventually, the Napa Valley became too strong a lure and Pauli purchased a circa 1880 farmhouse in St. Helena and in 1981 launched her catering company.

In her book Primal Cuisine, Cooking for the Paleo Diet, Pauli further educates on the topics of GMO’s, gluten and casein intolerance, and how our food choices impact the environment. Pauli has included many new recipes and wonderful photos in Primal Cuisine.

Kathryn MacRoberts


Kathryn has a deep passion for growing, cooking, and eating healthier food, and encouraging others to do the same.  Having gardened all her life and grown lots of her family's own food, she's at a transition point of sharing the bounty with others thru education and Laughing Duck Farm.

Kathryn's focus in college was biology/botany/fine arts. Later she became a master gardener/composter then was certified in Permaculture design.  Kathryn believes that farms should become thriving ecosystems completing the nutrient cycle by building the soil with compost and animals, saving seeds, and reaching out to the community.  Likewise, she strongly advocates that communities need to embrace, create, and secure the farms of today to survive for the future.
