Recipes from the Friends of Mar Vista

Our guests tell our story better than we can.

Their candid photos dominate our website. Their letters and journal entries tell of the Mar Vista magic firsthand. And now their recipes inspired by our garden and the sea illustrate the intensity of the flavor of food from earth or ocean to a Mar Vista Cottage table.
