Cindy Walter

Passionfish - Pacific Grove, CA

An exciting homage to sustainable cuisine, this dinner is also a true family affair. Husband-and-wife team Ted and Cindy Walter of the renowned Passionfish restaurant have designed a seafood-focused menu of their exquisite French-inspired cuisine which will be paired with impeccable wines from Ryme Cellars, which is run by the Walters' daughter and son-in-law.
