DECEMBER HIGHLIGHTS:
 

They say it takes all kinds to make a world, and this month’s personalities come from all kinds of backgrounds: Academia, a Michelin-star kitchen, the backcountry, the Magic Kingdom. Read their stories below!

The final scene in our Autumnal Triptych features a quintessential wine and cheese pairing in an off-the-beaten path picnic spot in Arizona's Western Lower Sonoran Desert.

In our mid-December issue: Drambuie makes a come back, and this time it goes way beyond The Rat Pat; and a look at what’s happening at Ashland Hill, Santa Monica's craft beer and wine garden that's not just another gin joint.

In our January Issue: A Thai chef, a French chef, Cheese Whiz Andrew Steiner, and more!

Take a look at our new page, WINE PAIRINGS to see the wine, spirits, and beers that F+B professionals have paired or featured in Foodies West this year. We'll be adding to it each month going forward.
