Healthy Competition


What’s a little healthy summer competition between colleagues, especially two newcomers to Northern California, the artisan cheese, sustainable farming, and organic produce Mecca? Now, I don’t want to mention any names, but a certain someone is getting a little fruity in the kitchen lately, and his initials are Will Fertman. That’s right, Will. I’ve seen your posts with your peaches on your pizza and other such Cali-Foodie adventurous combinations, and I must say: I like it. It jump-starts my competitive nature, but I do like it. I’m just wondering what the folks back home on the East Coast might have to say about peaches on a pizza… So here’s some food for thought.

Tonight’s entree-sized salad at Lauren Berley’s Sonoma home:

  • Fresh quatre saisons lettuce from my garden
  • Fresh snappy California green grapes, halved
  • Cucumber, chopped into bite-size pieces
  • Granny smith apple, chopped
  • Fresh spearmint leaves from my garden
  • Grated dill havarti

Homemade dressing:

  • Lemon
  • Ginger
  • Garlic
  • Distilled white vinegar
  • Olive oil
  • Dijon mustard
  • DOP chestnut honey from Italy
  • Cracked black pepper

A splendid combination of flavors, on every front, I must say. Will, what have you got for me next? And better yet, when can I come over for dinner? Anyone else want a piece of me?
