Business Partner and maire d’ Nick Peyton is also part of the revived establishment. It’s actually located in a vineyard.

Show 49, November 23, 2013: Barbara Fairchild, past long-time Editor of Bon Appetit Magazine, food journalist, cookbook author, educator

Barbara FairchildBarbara was recently in the relatively unspoiled Sonoma County Wine Country. She shares some of her best dining experiences including the One-Star Michelin Farmhouse Inn & Restaurant in Forestville (housed in a real Farmhouse,) and the more casual Healdsburg Shed in Healdsburg.

She also reminds about the whereabouts of high profile chef, Douglas Keane. His acclaimed restaurant in Healdsburg, Cyrus, has closed. Fortunately he is still represented in Healdsburg (and Sonoma County) with the more casual Healdsburg Bar & Grill. It’s basic American comfort fare. In as tip of the hat to being located in wine country there is no corkage fee.

Barbara will join us again in December to share her recent San Francisco dining adventures.
