A Fun Little Surprise on Gourmet.com

I'm part of the BlogHer network, which is collaborating with Gourmet Live. I was asked by them to suggest the best restaurant in San Diego to hold a party -- which would appear on gourmet.com. My write up is one of 10 around the country just published and now live on the site. Take a look to see what I recommended. And if you have any of your own suggestions, please leave a comment.

Flying Solo This Week on San Diego Gourmet

With both Robert and Maureen traveling, I'm flying solo this week on San Diego Gourmet. So, I did something smart -- I invited my friends Dominick Fiume and Candice Woo of Slow Food Urban San Diego on the show. We had a great time discussing this relatively new convivium in San Diego, and anyone who is even mildly interested in the Slow Food movement or getting to know people interested in good food, fruitful gardens and home cooking should listen in and then get involved.

Gold Medallion Awards to be Held April 21st

This Tuesday, April 21st, San Diego's restaurant and hospitality community will celebrate the 25th Annual Gold Medallion Awards at the Hilton San Diego Bayfront. Not only will we learn who wins Restauranteur of the Year, Chef of the Year, Associate Member of the Year and the President's Award, but past and present honorees will be feted. I'm tickled that I'll be there with the good folks at Specialty Produce.
