Show 345, October 19, 2019: Show Preview with Co-Host Andy Harris

Now a tempting preview of this Saturday’s delectable show. It’s not, with profuse apologies, for dieters. If we’re successful we will hopefully leave you incredibly hungry and thirsty. In our case that’s probably a pretty good thing… As always, we greatly appreciate you being a part of our loyal listening audience. Truly couldn’t do it without you.

Sandes of Time Bed and Breakfast located on a large property in the Milwaukie suburb of SE Portland, Oregon is a refreshing and comfortable change from the typical chain accommodations. This historic, two-story, farm-house style home (with high ceilings) is perfect for guests staying one night or several.  Built from 1904 to 1907 it has been restored and renovated to include four antique-filled guest rooms or suites with all the contemporary conveniences.  You’ll find the decorating warm and welcoming, the spacious yards and gardens peaceful and relaxing. Proprietress Terry Sande welcomes us to Sandes of Time.

Chef John Park’s Toast Kitchen + Bakery is a valued addition to the moderately priced dining scene in Costa Mesa. They serve Breakfast & Brunch daily (closed on Monday.) Breakfast is available all day on Saturday. Dinner is Tuesday through Saturday and Happy Hour is on Weekdays. A popular attraction is Taco Tuesday with its own menu. Some salivating new menu items have just been introduced including creative libations and both savory & sweet creations. Chef John Park, the Chef of the Year at the 2019 Golden Foodie Awards, joins us in-studio.

“Travels with Darley” takes viewers around the world with Emmy-nominated host Darley Newman and locals as the guides to experience culture, cuisine, history and outdoor adventure. The broadcast version debuted locally on Public Television’s KCET in September, taking viewers through Europe, Asia, the Caribbean and the USA. For Southern California viewers “Travels with Darley” airs Monday through Friday at 6:30 p.m. The new season marks the 41st half hour of the series aired over 7 seasons. The globe-trotting Darley Newman is our guest.

Our own Chef Andrew Gruel of the Slapfish Restaurant Group joins us from the road with another informative “Ask the Chef” segment. With the Holidays on the horizon it’s great to have a real working chef in our corner always providing handy and practical advice!

Alloro Vineyard in Sherwood brings Old-World allure to Oregon, just 30 minutes southwest of Portland. The 80-acre estate is a bucolic homage to Italian tradition, from its iconic Tuscan farmhouse and culinary gardens to the heirloom sheep that graze the vineyard cover crops. “Alloro” is Italian for laurel—a salute to founder David Nemarnik’s Italian/Croatian heritage, and the Laurel Ridge site itself. Holistic agricultural practices and respectful stewardship create terroir-driven wines showcasing purity of fruit with a clear sense of place. David pulls the cork on Alloro Vineyard for us.

All of this and heaping helpings of extra deliciousness on this week’s not-to-miss show!
