No Place for Vegans This Friday on The Gourmet Club

Where’s the beef? This week it’s on The Gourmet Club. We’ll have longtime television journalist and now rancher Bill Kurtis on the show to talk about his new book, The Prairie Table Cookbook, and his grass-fed cattle operation, Tallgrass Beef Company. According to Kurtis, free-range cattle feeding on grass in the pasture from birth to harvest, free of hormones and antibiotics, result in a health food -- beef with more concentrations of Omega-3 fatty acids and ALA (alpha linolenic acid). And, it reduces environmental stress.

Also with us will be Jim Barrasso, owner of Firefly Grill and Wine Bar in Encinitas. On April 3, the restaurant will hold a wine pairing dinner they’re calling “Celebration of Artichokes 2008.”

Finally, our good friend Mike Mitchell of Oceanaire will be in studio to give us an update on dining hotspots around town.

Join Ron James, Robert Whitley and me on Friday, March 7 from 1 to 2 p.m. at, or podcast the show and listen at your convenience!

  2. Oh, I'm going to have to check out that cookbook! Looks interesting...

    I'm so glad your site is much quicker to load now! The old foodie blogroll was slowing it down tremendously. I'll be visiting more often!
