The Bite Goes On – The Fire Rant with Gratitude

This was a difficult show to record as it reflected the aftermath of the October 2019 fires (not quite contained at the time of this recording) and the frustrations of the media projecting Sonoma as being completely on fire. Scenes from the 2017 fires were shown on tv with disregard about how it affects small businesses and towns that are driven by hospitality. The headlines were brutal and confusing as Sonoma and Sonoma County can be synonymouseven though Sonoma County. Sonoma County is 1,500 square miles/2.414 square kilometers, more than 50 miles/80 kilometers of coastline along the Pacific Ocean and the San Pablo Bay. Three rivers – Russian, Petaluma, and Gualala and One lake – Lake Sonoma. Sonoma County has a population of over 475,000 people. The county has more than 425 wineries, 53 regional parks, 20 coastal beaches and it is very hard for visitors to comprehend the landscape from afar. We also discuss the potential new normal of our electric company powering the electric ...

The Bite Goes On – Jim Denevan

At the tail end of his heavy event schedule this year, we were so fortunate to meet and converse with Jim Denevan, founder of Outstanding in the Field (OITF). He rolled up to the studio in his shiny red, white & silver 1953 Flexible bus to talk about his 20 years of OITF, his art and life on the road. We dive into the crazy logistics, the spot that the table is placed on unique settings, the vision of the farmers and incredible guest chefs that all make up OITF. In numbers, OITF has fed their guests in 18 countries and all 50 states. In 2019, the 20 year anniversary of OITF, they fed over 20,000 guests on the 112 event roster. Sondra and the girl & the fig team will be/was honored to be the guest chefs for a 460 guest OITF event on Stinson Beach ( November 9, 2019). It was an incredible opportunity to talk with Jim prior to their event to get some perspective about the inner workings of an event of this scale on the sand.

The Bite Goes On – Terri & Mark Stark

On this week’s episode we follow the path of Terri and Mark Stark, owners of 6 (and one on the way) well loved and delicious Sonoma County restaurants. We discover how they met, who does what, how they work together and make their marriage work. We spend some time talking about Willi’s Wine Bar, how it was lost in the fire and how the team’s love and loyalty brought it back to life. Somewhere in the middle, the conversation goes down the rabbit hole a tad regarding the frustrating politics, regulations, minimum wage … around the restaurant business. We do, however, finish it off with a bit of laughter, insights and takeaways. Their restaurants include – in order of open date; Willi’s Winebar, Willi’s Seafood & Raw Bar, Healdsburg, Monti’s, Stark’s Steak & Seafood, Bravas Bar de Tapas, Bird & Bottle, reopening of WIlli’s Winebar in a new location, Grossman’s Delicatessen & Bar coming in early 2020. www.starkrestaurants.com

The Bite Goes On – Christian Cartano

EP47: Prior Bite guest, Patti Britton (Episode 31) suggested that we should hear Farmer Christian Cartano’s story on our podcast. We are so glad that we did, as Christian arrived with an enormous lug of beautiful heirloom tomatoes for us. As a longtime vegetarian, Chris’ journey from Ohio to Northern California convinced him that his participation of growing and sharing food and being involved in the’real’ farm to table movement was going to be life changing. Christian got his start farming by growing thousands of tomato plants for Gotts restaurant (“an amazing process to learn”). He has been a committed farmer with a long interest in gardening and ecology, concerned with the future of organic farming and soil health. At present he is the farmer at Little Paradise Farm in Sonoma, a small private 30 acre organic farm that was created to sell local restaurants organic produce and some small batch hand-crafted tomato products including a delicious bloody mary mix. Brian and I tru...

The Bite Goes On – Eileen Gordon, Barnraiser

Not only did she entertain us with passionate stories, she also brought a few samples for us to taste. What is Barnraiser?

On the website you have the ability to search, discover through categories, browse and shop. On this online gathering place, you can like, share on social or by email. As we become more concerned and educated about where our food comes from and how it is farmed, produced and raised, this is a surefire way to get to know the makers.
