Re: “Caesar Salad Perfection

Classic is classic for a reason, but it sometimes bores me. Check out this version for a huge hit of flavor, with all the classic ingredients:

Re: “The Climate Menu

This is an excellent article. Climate change is the biggest threat to our survival, which is is why 40,000 people from nearly 200 countries attended the Paris climate change conference last month.

This article presents a unique perspective to the classic phrase that "you are what you eat." Next to the military assault on climate, Big Ag is the next main cause of chaotic climate change. I say this as someone who has operated a small farm that employs organic practices for the last 24 years. I like the phrase that this article quotes from the NY Times--"climatarianism."

I have a new program on KOWS-FM, where I plan to address some of these issues on Jan. 18, Mon., 5-6 p.m., when I interview author Richard Heinberg of the Post Carbon Institute. My program is called "A Better World IS Possible." I have already had two programs on climate change and one on agriculture. You can listen at 107.3 in the Occidental area and on the web at

Re: “The Climate Menu

I know this is the Bohemian, and a lot of people who depend upon animal production read your paper, but I was really saddened to read that you're splitting hairs (and feathers) to say that it's better to eat pork and chicken than lamb and beef. In addition, eating vegetables is cheaper than eating meat or fish. It's not a matter of "having the fortune to obsess over artisan, carbon-friendly lifestyles". Our grandparents cooked their own beans and we can, too.
Eating plants is the best way to care for the planet. Period.
Please watch the documentary. Facts and sources are noted above.

Re: “The Mayo Wars

Thank you for this article. Animal ag is trembling in its boots as more people become aware of the harmful effects it has on the planet, people, not to mention animals and are choosing plant-based foods as a result.

Re: “Down to the Marrow

Strongly recommend checking the paleo diet out for weight loss and improved life quality overall. Have a look at my review of the PaleoHacks cook book package and the diet overall for some tips and pointers:

Re: “Gone Local

Community Market actually has two locations, our original store in Santa Rosa, which remains vegetarian, and our location is Sebastopol in the Barlow, which offers sustainable meat options. We had a blast at the Chow Down Hootenanny!

Re: “Getting Saucy

Laura Hamburg, I am just seeing what you wrote after stumbling upon this review, and it is funny. I think you missed the point of those who say the positive talk about this pizza joint is inflated by the ruling owner and her minions. You are one of those minions, a personal friend with this pizza joint's owner for more than a decade. Even your words here are complete padding, not an honest customer review at all, just more ego petting, more small town smoke and mirrors. Congratulations.

Re: “Enticing and Ethical

Hi, as Luna Vineyards publicist, we have been advised that the event City Winery & "Eat, Drink and Be Vegan!" to benefit the Jameson Animal Rescue Ranch, has unfortunately been canceled. Luna Vineyards was proud to be a part of this event and look forward to Tonia Brow's next endeavor!

Re: “Change Artist

I love this place! and my favorite is also the salmon open faced sandwich, but Everything I have ever eaten there has been a magnificent repast.

Re: “Heritage Fire

This has been a hit or miss over the last 5 years. It insidiously has degraded from what was only small production Heritage Breeds to a large percentage of cow, large game fish Sturgeon, assorted non-Heritage fowl and organ meats and byproducts. The serving sizes decreased in size as the years went on. This event relies on (1)Chefs that want to network with each other and have to prostitute their skills to do so. (2) A revolving door of vendors that realize that marketing at the event did not add to the bottom line. (3) The public that realize access to all of the advertised foods only happens for the $160 VIP tickets and that the lines are usually not worth the wait for a second time because of the tiny portion sizes.

Re: “Wake and Bake

As a customer of Sonoma Scone company, I can attest to the deliciousness of these scones. I love that you bake them yourself so you can enjoy as many -- or as few -- as you'd like FRESH from the oven. Ms. Eicken packages them with easy instructions to follow (even I had no trouble!) I highly recommend these delicious morsels! I can't wait to try her new flavors.

Re: “Not So Sweet

Thank you for this important story. I have found sugar to be horribly addicting--but, like heroin, it feels good to kick the habit.

Re: “Getting Saucy

Yes, yes, yes the comments are now rolling in two weeks later from the people Saucy has forced to write wonderful, glowing words, including the STAFF that is paid by the restaurant to do so. Hmmmm....sounds very familiar, just like Yelp, Trip Advisor, and everything else. Face it people: you are dealing with a fragile, intimidating ego that must be stoked -- or else. And when you are telling everybody your business is down 20 to 25 percent from the previous year it is not because people in the town aren't hungry.

Re: “Getting Saucy

As a frequent traveler to N Ca there has never been a place to dine north of Healdsburg. Not any more! For the first time we now have a San Francisco quality restaurant. Fresh, creative and boasting local food. Saucy is a food oasis. Great craft beer, regional tap wines and servers who care. Thanks for discovering the dining secret of N Ca!
