The Gourmet Club Returns to the Sea

We love Chef Bernard Guillas and so back he comes to The Gourmet Club to chat about his recent travels, cooking classes and the menu transition from summer to fall at The Marine Room. I saw him most recently at the Taste of Slow Food San Diego where he was handing out bowls of vibrant orange cold carrot soup with crab and caviar. Oh, the flavors and textures in that refreshingly sweet chilled soup on that warm summer night!

And, since it's the first Wednesday of the month, we'll be hearing from Mike Mitchell with his Mitchell Report on the best of the new restaurants that have opened.

If there's time, I'll share some of the highlights of the Taste Pavilion at Slow Food Nation in San Francisco last weekend as well as the experience of being at one of the most astounding farmers markets I've ever seen -- The Ferry Plaza Farmers Market. The size of the market and the breadth of the offerings were a revelation. And, fortunately, I was making dinner for friends that evening and got to actually buy wonderful products to use later.

And, Maureen and Robert will fill us in on their latest culinary adventures.

So, tune in for the hour. The Gourmet Club is the tastiest meeting in town. Join Robert Whitley, Maureen Clancy 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.
