  • Traditional Vietnamese Dipping Sauce is Good on Everything from Spring Rolls to Omelets

    One of the things that gets us most excited about living in Sacramento is the cultural diversity. With diversity, comes a wide range of food experiences. We live close to an area of town called 'Little Saigon', that is a two mile corridor that is a cultural and culinary center of the Vietnamese community. There are more restaurants there than you could ever try. If you do want to try some local places...

    You may wonder how one can get so excited about a bag of flour. I assure you it’s not just a symptom of frenzied sourdough bread making as a response to the quarantine. This bag of flour is really special. Firstly, the wheat is grown and milled right in Capay Valley, California...

  • Why Is Indian Food So Good?

    Many, many years ago I moved to New York City, right out of college. I loved everything about living in New York, especially being exposed to the world of different cultures and foods. I had an artichoke for the first time in my life my first week there. How I got to the age of 21 without ever eating an artichoke is a mystery to me now. I also had Indian Food for the first time and became obsessed...
  • Growing Olives, Meyer Lemon Infused Olive Oil and California Fires.

    This olive is so versatile, which is another reason why we love it. Try it on crostini, with ricotta, comb honey and lemon zest for a quick appetizer. It’s wonderful drizzled on ice cream, trust me, just try it. Of course it’s great on salads and grilled veggies. And Denise Andre, head of the olive oil and marketing at CV Ranches, opened up our world to baking with it...
  • Delta Breezes and Sparkling Pear Juice

    The Sacramento area is known for its blistering heat, but it is also known for its Delta breezes. Although Sacramento is inland from the coast, we are surrounded by water. The California Delta is an expansive inland river delta and estuary ranging from the western edge of the Central Valley by the confluence of the Sacramento and San Joaquin rivers and is just east of Suisun Bay, where the rivers enter. With this water system comes flooding. Levees were built and land was claimed...
  • Pandemic, Fire, Smoke and Perseverance

    It’s been twelve weeks since I launched my first Farm to Fork in a Box. The time has gone by quickly and slowly, all at the same time. I sense that is a common feeling many people have had lately. We are in our sixth month of the pandemic, or so. Some days I feel like I blinked and the time...

  • Bloody Mary's – You Either Love Them or Hate Them!

    Bloody Marys - people either love them or hate them. We love them! There is nothing more glorious than a good Bloody Mary garnished with fresh celery on a sunny morning. Notice we said 'sunny', not 'Sunday'. We think Bloody Marys are good any day, anytime. Garnishing this cocktail has become an Olympic sport practically, but we like to keep ours pretty simple...
  • Pomegranate Aged Balsamic Vinegar from Skylake Ranch, Chico California

    Pomegranates have to be one of the queen of fruits, among many members of fruit royalty, such as Cherimoya, Pitaya, or Manogsteen. Packaged in a rubbery scarlet coating streaked with peach and pink and green – at the bottom –  a perfect crown. Inside hundreds of juicy ruby seeds nestled in a pale labyrinth of flesh...
