The Gourmet Club Goes to La Costa Brava

Well, actually, it comes to The Gourmet Club in the person of Javier Gonzalez, owner of the Pacific Beach tapas bar and restaurant, Costa Brava, and neighboring wine and cheese shop, Pata Negra. We'll be talking to Javier about the restaurant, of course, but more broadly about trends in Spanish cuisine and that gorgeous tasting Iberico ham that he's now importing. This is a first for San Diego and a really savory, if expensive, treat. I just spend a couple of hours with Javier and my new buddy Fernando Hernandez, who runs Pata Negra and will be writing about the shop later this week. In the meantime, enjoy the conversation we'll be having with Javier on The Gourmet Club.

And, since it's the first time in awhile that Robert, Maureen and I have been in studio together in awhile, we'll be doing some catching up on where we've been eating and what we've been cooking -- including my cooking classes at Rancho La Puerta's La Cocina Que Canta.

The Gourmet Club is the tastiest meeting in town. Join Robert Whitley, Maureen Clancy and me for our regular Wednesday morning gathering on signonradio.com from 11 a.m. to noon Pacific. You can also podcast the show and listen at your convenience.
