The Gourmet Club Takes to the Backstreet

I'm back--no pun intended. I was laid up watching the Olympics 24/7 while my back was spasming and otherwise creating misery. But that was last week. This week, I'll be rejoining Robert and Maureen at the table and meeting our guest, Cindy Pawlcyn.


Pawlcyn, owner of Cindy's Backstreet Kitchen in St. Helena, as well as Mustards Grill and Go Fish, is a Napa Valley icon. From the fresh organic ingredients she's committed to using in her restaurants to her experiential food research, Pawlcyn creates delicious, heartfelt food that has earned her a devoted local and national following. We'll be talking with her about her new cookbook Big Small Plates, her restaurants and her travels to San Sebastian, Spain and Oaxaca, Mexico to try new restaurants and cuisines for inspiration.

We'll also spend some time talking about last weekend's Taste of Slow Food San Diego, the Temecula Olive Oil Company and what sounds like the ultimate birthday dinner, enjoyed by Maureen last Saturday (think Carl Schroeder and Michele Coulon).

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