ROMANTIC DAY IN SANTA MONICA:
Hold hands. Kiss.
Take our PEDAL OR NOT Semi-Private Bike Tour (from $49 per person), then continue your day with a Picnic Basket for two.
After the bike tour, your Romantic Adventure continues on foot after a short drive. When you leave Pedal or Not you will travel one mile to the Montana area of Santa Monica where you’ll pick up your PICNIC BASKET.
Your basket for two was designed for us by the former Maitre d’Fromage of Joachim Splichal’s Patina restaurant.
The Basket consists of a fresh baguette, and an assortment of 3 different artisan produced cheeses chosen for the day. Your cheeses will be complimented with Prosciutto. For dessert enjoy Fran’s Dark Chocolate Grey Salt Caramels for a sweet treat.
Some of the exquisite examples of our cheeses are:
- Brillat-Savarin created in the 1930s by Henri Androuette. This cheese is made in Normandy and the flavor is as rich as it gets with a gentle hint of mushrooms.
- Pleasant Ridge Reserve, the only two time winner of Best in Show at the American Cheese Championship. This Beaufort is from Dodgeville, Wisconsin.
- Grevenbroecker is one of the most beautiful and unusual looking cheese you will ever find. It has a superb rich texture and sweetness due to the richness of the milk.
- Cave Aged Marisa. Named for Sid Cook’s daughter, he is the cheesemaker at Carr Valley Dairy in LaValle Wisconsin. Salty and sweet with a definite hazelnut note.
We suggest the following self-guided walk. With basket in hand, stroll to Palisades Park, 7 blocks West on Montana and picnic overlooking the bay and the bike path.
Feeling adventurous and want to walk? Stroll up to the northern end of the park (less than a mile) and walk east; up Adelaide viewing Santa Monica Canyon on your left, (the homes seem to magically hang from the side of the Canyon). Some of Santa Monica’s most expensive homes can be seen on your right, and the famous 4th street stairs come up to meet you.
The Ocean, the Mountains and you. Hold hands and kiss.
Go back to Montana, window shop, really shop, or have a drink at an outdoor café.
SPEND A ROMANTIC DAY IN SANTA MONICA. Picnic basket for two: $49.
