Wine Dine and Travel, award-winning emagazine

In addition to writing cookbooks, I have long written travel features focusing on foods of all sorts, from how to make couscous in the style of Casablanca, to food markets around the globe. Truth be told, my favorite pastime, wherever I am,  is to meet local growers and producers, be it farmers, ranchers, or cheese makers everywhere I travel. Gathering wheat for making couscous in Morocco; exploring Adelaide’s (Australia) bustling Central Market; savoring Chile’s acclaimed mussels on the island of Chiloe; taste-testing (!!) cava (champagne) and oysters in l’Ampolla, Spain; grazing through Barcelona’s famed La Boqueria; and eating Cuba’s iconic ropa vieja. . This passion began decades ago when I wrote a weekly column titled “In Season” for the San Diego edition of the Los Angeles Times–My agricultural education lasted two and a half years, starting with the first ever farmer’s market in San Diego County, the granddaddy of them all Vista Farmer’s market (held in the parking lot of our library in the very early 1980s, with just 18 farmers, many retired military. My “farm” experts then were the managers and market co-founders, wonderful and generous Dick and Margo Bauman, both now deceased. The LA Times left San Diego, and that only inspired me to continue seeking farmers around the state, and to write The California Farm Cookbook (Pelican Publishing, 1994). For the next year or so, I sought out and visited with dozens of farmers long before Farm to Table became overused  buzzwords.

More recently, this GORGEOUS Internet magazine  allows me to resume my path: Wine Dine and Travel magazine (http://www.winedineandtravel.com), an award-winning quarterly that features wine, dining, and globe trotting! I am now a staff writer. Here are links  to my articles.
