Social distancing is an important opportunity to do good for the world, but it also gives us a chance to be grateful for what we have. In Santa Maria Valley, we are thankful for each and every person who visits and makes our home so special. Now, we’d like to do the same for you. We know that spending a lot of time at home can be boring, so here are a couple of ways we can bring the fun and spice of Santa Maria Valley to you!

Enjoy the Flavors of Santa Maria Valley in Your Own Kitchen

Social distancing just got a little easier – and tastier! With our official #SantaMariaStyle Cookbook, you can bring our 150-year-old tradition of savory, barbecued goodness right to your kitchen. The cookbook includes a full grocery list, preparation instructions, recipes, and tips and tricks from barbecue pros to make a full Santa Maria Style meal, complete with tangy salsa and a salad.
