What's Happening in FOODIES WEST: 

Life ever hand you a 404 page? You know how it goes: You wonder, What am I doing here? Or someone tells you, You don't qualify. Or someone gives you an oddball offer that makes you think, Why would I do that, it's totally not me? Take a look at how this month's personalities handled their 404 moments below.

What started as a "goofy" idea turned into one of the country's few woman-owned micro-distilleries, and it produces award-winning spirits. Read the story behind it.

Coming up Mid-month: Chef Joachim Splichal's new Domaine de CALA rosés from Provence; John Slattery shares a vitalist's (not a survivalist's) view on foraging the Southwest, and FOODIES WEST takes a look at what’s happening at Camelback Inn's Lincoln Restaurant.

Actually, my first day at work, I was
just looking around. I said, 'Oka-a-a-y'.
There was nobody that actually
understood my culture and my food.

CHRIS NEFF:


I wanted to be a server, but they said I didn't have enough experience, 'So you can't be a server'. Okay, how about a bartender? 'You're not old enough'. Well, fine. I'll be a cook.
