About the Paladar
Established in January of 2012, Polly's Paladar grew out of one woman's dream and quickly became the culinary journey of an entire community. Polly's Paladar Supper Club remains a place of adventure and empowerment for all who partake.
Megan Hart has 20 years of experience in public relations and event planning. After studying theater in college, she began traveling, eventually settling in Stockholm, Sweden which she utilized as her home-base to tour Europe. During this time, she fell in love with food culture.
Megan started her career in Tulsa, Oklahoma, where she worked in the restaurant industry, organic grocery stores, as a personal assistant, and au’pair. She moved to Nevada County in 2002 and is grateful to call this place home since. Megan recognized the need for an innovative enterprise that would also support her family’s needs. Thus, Polly’s Paladar was born.
She specializes in complex, high-profile events and particularly enjoys working for causes that benefit the environment, children, indigenous rights, and women’s rights issues. She is a proud member of Equity at the Table, a practical and proactive response to the blatant gender and racial discrimination that plagues the food industry. EATT is an easy-to-navigate database for food industry professionals featuring only women/gender non-conforming individuals and focusing primarily on POC and the LGBTQ community. It’s better to “build a longer table, not a higher fence.”2018 will be her seventh year as Executive Director of Polly’s Paladar Supper Club.
