  • 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

  • The bean you need! Zuni Gold from Rancho Llano Seco in Chico, California

    My first thought when it became clear the pandemic was going to keep us all locked down for weeks or months, was, oh boy, a lot of people are going to have to learn to cook! No more grabbing lunch at the food truck with coworkers, or meeting up with friends for tapas and sangria. No brunch! 
  • Disappearing Fruit, The Ark of Taste and The Good Stuff

    Blenheim Apricots used to be grown in abundance in the Santa Clara valley starting in the early 1900’s. By the 1960’s they started to decline. Blenheim’s are sweet and tart and are wonderful fresh or dried and in preserves, but they mature a little more slowly than other varieties. They also bruise easily...

  • Farm to Oven - Almond Biscotti from Upper Crust Baking, Davis California

    One of our favorite things to do as a family on the weekends is to go to the farmers market to get fresh produce for the week, and perhaps a bouquet of flowers. Well, in truth, it’s my favorite thing to do. But I get eager company with my daughter and husband because the first stop is always at the Upper Crust Baking tables to drool over all the incredible pastry choices that have spread out...
  • Why this cookbook? The Davis Farmers Market Cookbook by Ann M. Evans
