A TASTE OF THE VALLEY
Here are some mouth-watering photos from a wedding we catered in Los Banos at the new community center (nice place!) We were serving a variety of local cheeses and sausages. The assortment of sausages were from Wolfsen's in Gustine Calif. and the labeled cheeses are from Golden Valley, all sheep's milk cheeses.

Chef Series: The Hunt
In the Great San Joaquin we have a tradition of hunting. My home town of Los Banos is a hunter's paradise. Deer and Wild Boar in the coastal range, Pheasant, Rabbit, Dove, Quail and Duck in the lower Valley. Los Banos has more duck blinds than swimming pools. In fact, whole industries are built around the Duck. The deli I had would flood with duck hunters hungry for food of the hunt. I prepared game sauce with polenta, wild game sausage, peppers, potatoes and they ate it up! Now we offer this menu with the same spirit of the hunt.

Chef Series: AMERICANA
We Americans have a distinct food palate. Something as simple as good ol’ Mac & Cheese can be Supercharged by adding truffles and gruyere. On the other hand, sometimes it is best to leave a great cut of meat alone, maybe, a little hand made horseradish sauce on the side, field greens salad finished off with some scratch made bread pudding.
