Welcome to our special time. We’re here with you on Saturday, Nov. 7th from 2:30 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. Back at our regular time of 10:00 a.m. to 12 Noon on November 14th.

Greetings, and now a mouthwatering preview of Saturday’s high octane show and not, with apologies, for dieters. With any luck we will always leave you hungry and thirsty. In our case that’s probably a good thing…

Wing Lam is well-known to Southern Californians as the personable co-founder of Wahoo’s Fish Taco. He’s 3rd generation in his Family in the restaurant business. His Father emigrated from Brazil to the United States and opened his first Chinese restaurant on Balboa Island in 1970. The restaurant remains in operation. We’ll hear about this fun slice of local restaurant history from Wing Lam himself.

In Southern California small Family Farmers are finally starting to get recognition in the food world. Farmers are even getting credit on restaurant menus. Some have risen to the level of culinary celebrities. Since 1991 Crows Pass Farm has been supplying better restaurants seasonally with select fruits and vegetables. We’ll meet a genuine Family Farmer, David Barnes.

Blue Plate Oysterette is hosting two special evening events with oyster authority Rowan Jacobsen at both of their locations in Santa Monica (Nov. 18th.) and on Los Angeles’ West Third St. (Nov. 17th.) Rowan is the distinguished author of the James Beard Award-winning A Geography of Oysters – The Connoisseur’s Guide To Oyster Eating In North America. We’ll meet Rowan as well as the proprietress of Blue Plate Oysterette, Jen Morton and Culinary Operations Manager Chef Brock Kleweno.

Carmel–by-the-Sea offers the small town charm of a forested European village along with an ocean view. You can actually walk to a variety of appealing ethnic restaurants, premium wine tasting rooms, and one-of-a-kind shops and galleries. For over 60 years the place to stay has been the Hofsas House Hotel. It’s Old World hospitality at its best. Our guest is Carrie Theis who represents the 3rd generation of proud Family ownership.

All of this and lots more absolutely incredible deliciousness on Saturday’s show!
