You are what you eat...
Flora + Fauna Fine Food has been 20+ years in the making. After working in the Bay Area catering industry for over two decades, long time friends Heidi Hornikel and Tamara Ardron knew the time had come to breathe life into their dream. With a robust and well-developed culinary repertoire, a fabulous sense of style and taste, (and a playful streak that has always served them well) this dynamic pair brings culinary and management expertise into California’s beautiful Central Coast.
At Flora + Fauna Fine Food, we believe in REAL food. We believe in indulgin and delighting the senses. We believe that simple is good, and we strive to create original menus that come from that sweet spot where culinary sophistication and the humble fresh quality of ingredients meet. We believe in joyfully devouring, savoring the present moment, and most of all – in the ability of a good meal to be a conduit of happiness and authentic human connection.
Meet Chef Heidi
Chef Heidi has been passionate about food and cooking since the age of 12. She began an apprenticeship at the age of 16, continued her education in classical French Cuisine and graduated from the Culinary Institute of America in Hyde Park, New York.
After relocating to San Francisco, she worked at local restaurants and bakeries for the first 4 years before beginning her catering career. This eventually led her to become Executive Chef of a corporate catering company for over 20 years. The diversity of the Bay Area clientele expanded her cooking knowledge with flavors from around the globe.
About Fox Jump Cinematics
“We are Purveyors of Immersion”. I like that. That’s how Colton Duncan described what he does. Engage those he is filming in such a way as to allow them to fully experience the moment (of their wedding, anniversary, birthday, or any other life celebration you can think of) to the fullest. I met Colton Duncan and Jessa Ripley at Scout Coffee in SLO to talk about FOX JUMP CINEMATICS. It was a fun conversation. They laugh easily, smile incessantly and make you feel very, very relaxed. After getting their history: Utah boy, meets California girl in 2015 while working together on the Central Coast. Colton was always fascinated with the cinematic arts; growing up the magic of what Disney Studios did both intrigued and inspired him. He has always had an intuitive sense of how best to capture a moment on film, how to save it for the generations that follow. Jessa is a organizer, planner, creative dreamer. Together they know just how “put people in positions where real moments can happen”. That is why they are so successful; that is why they are so sought after. You really should check out their work. You will probably want to become their client; at the very least you will want to become their friend.
They become friends immediately. Because 1: they both share a certain amount of contempt for the movie Jurassic World (you really should go to their website and read why). And 2: they both have and have always had an avid interest in film. Overtime they become a couple, and ultimately business partners. FOX JUMP CINEMATICS business partners.

We LOVED having Scott as our DJ! Highly recommend. He made the whole process so easy and so smooth, and he was so helpful when we asked for suggestions for some of our special songs. Thanks again Scott!!
