We used to look forward to October for its great weather and harvest. That has been changed of late and this year was no exception. Dry weather conditions and high winds brought another series of wildfires to the area, which disrupted the lives of hundreds of thousands of people. The disruption has not ended, as people […]

Over the past week we have been living out of our suitcases, as fires have covered the region. We have stayed with various friends who often had other displaced guests. Meals were makeshift, but we usually managed to get together something more than palatable. Here’s what we did last night. INGREDIENTS: 8 boneless chicken thighs […]
With the days getting cooler and shorter it is time to turn to more hearty fare. One of my favorites is chowder, in almost any variation. This month I’ve picked seafood as starting point; feel free to add /substitute your own favorites as desired. INGREDIENTS: ¼ cup butter 1 onion, diced Salt and pepper ¼ […]
Along with seasonal weather (warm days/cool nights), the harvest is moving along. It is not the madness we have often experienced, with trucks lined up to deposit their loads. In fact, we have to date taken in less than half of what we have contracted, and we very well could be bringing in grapes far […]
With Labor Day weekend upon us, we have yet to see any grapes in the fermenters. This marks the first time in 5 years we have had to wait until September for the harvest to begin. Late spring rains have pushed the harvest back a bit, but things should start rolling next week. We are […]
Finally tomato season has arrived! It was a bit late this year due to spring rains, but now we see (and taste) an abundance of some of the juiciest and most flavorful fruit this side of grapes. This particular dish would make a great outdoor brunch or lunch. INGREDIENTS: 3 tablespoons butter 1 onion, diced […]
It is hard to believe but summer is half gone. The hills are “golden,” the Russian River is full of vacationers, and the wineries are starting to gear up for harvest. The weather is wine and human friendly, with warm days and cool nights. Growers report good sized crops, perhaps a week or so later […]

INGREDIENTS: Salad Dressing 2 tablespoons olive oil ½ cup rice vinegar 1/3 cup hoisin sauce 2 tablespoons soy sauce 1 tablespoon fresh ginger, […]
Summer is cracking into high gear as the days get warmer, the crowds get bigger, and everything seems just a touch nicer. We at Taft Street received some welcome news from two of the nation’s top wine competitions. From the Orange County Wine Competition (world’s biggest competition for California wines), we received GOLD MEDALS for […]
This weekend we are taking part Grill 116, a BBQ at Taft Street and neighboring wineries. Here’s what we have cooking. INGREDIENTS: ¼ cup sugar ¼ cup soy sauce 1 12 oz can pear juice ¼ cup sesame oil 1 tablespoon freshly grated ginger Salt and pepper 2 ½ pounds cross cut, bone-in beef ribs […]
