The New Black BBQ

Looks like a new food truck is on it's way to the streets of Santa Barbara. Follow them on Facebook.
The New Black is modern barbeque that draws from the traditions and memories associated with the letters "BBQ," and combines them with evolved techniques and California style. It's a new take on barbeque, but you would never call it anything else. The food, like our patrons, is contemporary and local. We recognize tradition, but appreciate innovation. We do it simple; we do it right. You're welcome.
We just wanted to say thank you to everyone who's supported our project recently and from its inception. I know everyone is excited for an opening date, and the reason we haven't set one in stone is we want everything to be just right for the big day (believe me, we're just as excited as you are). We will keep you informed, but it should be very soon... - Chris & Nick

Joel Salatin - Farmer and Philospher

was interviewed on OnPoint Radio. A great listen.
Joel Salatin is heralded as the high priest of the pasture. And for good reason. The Virginia farmer speaks the gospel of local, clean, and healthy eating. No pesticides. Uber-organic. Just a man and his earth—with as little government interference as possible. Devotees are eating it up.

Now, he’s out with a new clarion call for a nation of unhealthy eaters: Get off your laptop and get your hands dirty. Get close to the earth. Understand where your food and fuel comes from. Before it’s too late. - OnPoint Radio

Here's to those who "Think Different"

Labels: , ,


Cafe Shell sold?

or somesort of partnership deal? The infamous big yellow sign hanging in the window of Cafe Shell states "Public Notice of Application for Ownership Change" with the applicant "Rose & Chocolate, Inc."  However, Shelley is involved in Rose & Chocolate, so is there a new partnership involved...or new owner?

Stay tuned.

Planned Parenthood Book Sale - 2nd book haul

Yeah. It was 1/2 price day today. How could I pass this up? There were a few good cookbooks left....

Sun Valley Celebrities & Local Heroes Cookbook. (2001)
The Bel Air (Hotel) Book of Southern California Food & Entertaining. (1991)
No Jacket Required - another Great Collection of Recipes from InCircle Neiman Marcus (1995)
Palm Beach Entertains - Then and Now from the Junior League of Palm Beaches (1976)
The All New Complete Cooking Light Cookbook (2006)
New York Entertains from the Junior League of the City of New York (1974)
Talk About Good! Le Livre de la Cuisine de Lafatette. (1967) (to replace my other copy)
The Glorious Soups and Stews of Italy (2006)
A Parade of Recipes from the La Canada Flintridge Tournament of Roses Association (1982)
My Macadamia Nut Recipes from Hawaiian Holiday Macadamia Nut Co. (1980)

Taking a look at what these books cost on line and what I paid for them...Holy mole...what a steal. One of these days, I'll probably be forced to "eat my cookbooks."
