 Vol. 4 | No. 19                                                                                                                                                     OCTOBER 2016 ISSUE

October Highlights:
 

       This month's featured chefs prove there are many roads to success. One took the shortest route between Point A and Point B; another did some thoughtful tacking; and yet another decided to take the path less not traveled. See their stories below.

        Our newest feature, wine & cheese pairings in scenic backcountry spots and second in our Autumnal Triptych, takes you to one of Arizona’s richest gold mining areas near Prescott, Arizona. Foragers take note: you can find a number of great ingredients in the area to gather for the table.

In our mid-October issue: Vodka from a most pristine place on the planet, Organic Coconut products, and a look at what’s happening at Navio restaurant (the next AQUA?) in Half Moon Bay.

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.

If you want something, you go and get it and pursue it. I’m a big believer in that. Believing in yourself is all you have. If you don’t, who will?
