The first show of the 2015 season of The Inn Crowd is now "in the can" as said in the film industry. I am delighted to be the Chef-Host of this food and wine show. Featured guest is Krista Harris, Publisher of Edible Santa Barbara. Krista brings a mindset that local sourcing of food products is essential for economy and ecology. We feature local farmed mussels, beef tenderloin from the * Watkins Cattle Company in neaby Ojai withSanta Barbara Farmers Market vegetables. We go off the farm for the dessert and feature a rich chocolate dessert. And naturally, host Craig Case is there to greet and eat.
I want to express my appreciate to Craig Case for inviting me to be the chef of record. I also want to thank the YTS video productions team of Gary, Harlene and William Conlin who bring the electron magic together. Lastly I want to acknowledge the Foley Food and Wine Society for providing sponsorship including the Crossroads Estate for our studio and selections from their fabulous wine portfolio.
Put on your apron, grab your food processor and hang on to your whisk. We have 30 episodes coming to you this year. I'll provide the recipes, the rest is up to you. See you in the kitchen.
