Truckee’s Stella Restaurant stopping dinner; to host classes, events

TRUCKEE, Calif. — After five years of operation, Stella Restaurant, part of The Cedar House Sport Hotel in Truckee, is stopping nightly dinner service in favor of a new direction.

Under Executive Chef Jacob Burton, Stella Culinary is taking over the kitchen and offering hands-on cooking classes, underground dinner parties for the public and creative custom dining options for families and groups.

“Patty and Jeff Baird, owners of The Cedar House, have always been forward thinking in their approach to doing business,” Burton said in a news release announcing the change. “With their concept of an active lifestyle hotel centered around outdoor adventure, luxury accommodations and the culinary arts, I saw the opportunity to get in on the ground floor of a destination property that has the vision to offer a cohesive experience.”

While the restaurant will end its nightly dinner service on April 19, there are many new opportunities to dine at Stella.

“Stella Underground,” an innovative and fun twist on traditional dinners, is Stella’s spin on the pop-up restaurant concept and will be offered several times a month.

For example, Ramen Underground, offered from 6 to 8 p.m. on June 5, will feature Burton’s hand-rolled alkaline noodles in a laid-back, mutli-course, community style event including vegetarian and vegan options.

Stella Culinary will also host educational programs, ranging from single-day courses to week-long boot camps.
