MC, VISA, AMX. DISC
The zazu kitchen is inspired by the thoroughly American and deep Italian roots of Sonoma County’s wine growing families. The food is innovative but approachable, yet heavily based in combinations that have a culinary history and that work. The nightly changing menus are put together after much thought and research. Duskie likes to update comforting American classics with the best local ingredients.
After training with a Tuscan couple, John likes to prepare authentic and rustic Italian foods. John makes Zazu's pastas daily with eggs he gathers from his own chickens. He is also an avid gardener, growing all the ingredients that go into his ribollita in Zazu's garden to highlight Healdsburg’s DaVero “olio nuovo” fresh from the press in November. Other Italian inspired dishes have included: vin santo braised rabbit with chestnut pappardelle and thumbelina carrots; seared sonoma duck with laura chenel goat cheese gnocchi, black mission figs and saba; or vin santo ice cream with biscotti di Prato.
