Our own Chef Andrew Gruel, the menu-maker behind the full-service Calico Fish House (in the Sunset Beach area of Huntington Beach) and also the founder and pizzaiola of the fast-casual Big Parm (New Jersey-style pizza) located in the Mess Hall in Tustin provides another timely and informative “Ask the Chef” segment where he responds to listeners’ thoughtful inquiries.
We planned to chat with Chef Andrew this morning about the cancellation of the annual commercial fishing season for Chinook salmon in coastal California waters but Chef Andrew experienced some unexpected flight delays and was in the air during his scheduled segment. We’ll reel in the tasty Chinook salmon for next week.
Instead, Producer Andy highlighted what some generous restaurants in Las Vegas (with roots in Hawaii) are already doing to meaningfully support vitally needed fire relief aid in West Maui. Las Vegas is unofficially known as the “Ninth Island” as Vegas is an ever-popular destination for Hawaiians when they are on vacation to the Mainland.
