The Gourmet Club Gets Bloggie

I'm so excited about this show since our guests are familiar as friends not just to me but to most of you food blog lovers and Twitter participants.

First, we're opening with Jeff Jackson, executive chef at The Lodge at Torrey Pines' fabulous restaurant A. R. Valentien. He'll be filling us in on the events at the sixth annual Celebrate the Craft event taking place at The Lodge at Torrey Pines this weekend (Oct. 30 - Nov. 2). I've already posted about the event, which includes the Picnic in the Park on Sat., Nov. 1 and the Picnic on the Arroyo Terrace with a host of food stations featuring local area growers, vintners and suppliers. (I'll be there!). Chef Jackson will give us a preview of who will be participating and what will be happening over the weekend. For tickets and room packages, go online here.

We'll also catch up with co-host Maureen Clancy and hear about her recent stint in Vienna.

Then we'll have what I expect will be a really fun chat with three of San Diego's premier food bloggers, Alice Robertson (Alice Q. Foodie), Nicole Hamaker (Pinch My Salt) and Amanda Simpson (What We're Eating and FoodPornDaily.com). We'll find out just how they got into food blogging, what inspires them, how they've each developed such a following and what they think of the San Diego food scene. Have questions for them? Drop a comment below before 9:30 a.m. PT tomorrow, tweet me @carondg or give the show a call at 866.818.6384 while we're on live.

So, tune in for the hour. The Gourmet Club is the tastiest meeting in town. Robert Whitley is off traveling through Spain for the next couple of weeks so join 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.

  1. Looking forward to it!

  2. And I'm looking forward to having you as a guest!

  3. Heard about this on Twitter from Nicole -- as another San Diego food blogger, I can't wait to hear your chat. Should be interesting!

  4. What ever happened to Ron James? I liked him on the show.

  5. Ron hasn't been with the show since last May when he left the San Diego Union-Tribune's signonsandiego.com. We miss him, but he's busy with new projects.

  6. Fellow San Diego blogger here... I'm thrilled to learn about this and will be listening today!

    I really need to be twittering to get to know all of you. Haven't taken the plunge into Twitter yet!

  7. Well, get moving, RecipeGirl! Twitter's a kick!
