The Gourmet Club Tries New Flavors

The pre-holiday rush of cooking and baking and buying and partying is on. We're no different at The Gourmet Club and our calendar is packed. Robert is off in Napa -- again -- so Maureen and I will be hosting a full house of guests.

First up is our pal Mike Mitchell, now of Cafe Coyote. We'll get a rundown from him of festivities taking place around town. Take note and make reservations!

Then my Twitter buddy and cookbook author Amy Sherman will call in from Hawaii to talk with us about what's new in appetizers. Her new book for Williams-Sonoma is New Flavors for Appetizers.

Its 44 recipes are the perfect inspiration for throwing a party. Funny how a slightly different ingredient or cooking method can create a whole new concept for an old favorite. We'll learn some of her tricks.

And, joining us in studio is our friend Susan Sbicca.


Her wonderful restaurant, Sbicca, in Del Mar celebrated its 10th anniversary earlier this year. We'll hear what her holiday plans are for the restaurant and get some ideas for home entertaining.

The Gourmet Club is the tastiest meeting in town. 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.
