Bernstein and Toulze over the top at Jack London

beaqrdguyson

There’s something to be said about the call of the wild. Sondra Bernstein and John Toulze of the girl and the fig empire fame, went wild last night, in a great way, and pushed it over the top as the culinary duo hosted their staff party at Broadway Under the Stars at Jack London State Park in Glen Ellen. Mr. London would have been proud. With three restaurants, a catering company, a garden that most would consider a farm, along with I am convinced, a secret -idea - think – tank room with designs on the next projects, it stymies the senses on how these two premier culinarians have any time to host a staff party for over 350 people. Bravo, Baby, Bravo. Bernstein could have easily…

The power of a Choco Pie

Choco Pies are more than a flavorful treat

Choco Pie is an iconic Korean snack akin to the American Twinkie. These individually wrapped patties are more than just a chocolate-covered marshmallow and cookie treat; they represent the political tensions between the North and the South. Most people take Choco Pies for granted—they can be bought by the case for less than $1 a patty.  Yet, to people in North Korea, they are a highly coveted luxury. Choco Pies have become a kind of…

How to bring the heat with homemade sriracha hot sauce

Sriracha is a delicious hot sauce that is incredibly easy to make at home. Save yourself a couple bucks by taking a few pounds of chilies and turning them into a seemingly endless supply of sriracha. There are two variables of sriracha, made with either red jalapeños or Fresno chilies. The two peppers are very similar in flavor and heat, but red jalapeños are what is used to make the famous Huy Fong sriracha with…
