I was in line at the grocery trying to get my latest fix on Brad and Angelina when I saw you and our very own artist in residence Mr. Goat Wrangler himself, Douglas Gayeton in Food & Wine magazine! Nice photo you crazy kids. And, that shortbread cookie was a nice compliment with our very own Laloo’s vanilla snowflake ice cream. It was good to see our Sonoma neighbors like Gleason Ranch, Bellwether Farms, Bear Republic Beer and Flying Goat Coffees’ put together some other savory bites + drinks also featured in the article. It sure is nice to see all us artisans getting such great recognition.
And as if that wasn’t exciting enough, don’t forget the third annual goat festival is just around the corner. A festival devoted to the glory of all things goat; cheese, chocolate, soaps and lotions will be available for sampling at the Center for Urban Education for Sustainable Agriculture in the ferry plaza building. Any excuse to visit the ferry building works for me but, this guarantees to be a fun day for all. Check out the link:
And, while I’m doing my bit for PR, might I mention that the aforementioned Goat Wrangler in residence (Douglas Gayeton) is again in the spotlight in this month’s Cucina Italiana. He traveled all the way back to ITALY this year in search of the best pasta carbonara and Italy’s most respected uovo. Paolo Parisi feeds his chickens goat’s milk to get the world’s creamiest eggs. These eggs are what make this carbonara so special that people cross oceans for it. Gratzie mille to my Italian Capri!
