Join the Food Gal and Farmer Extraordinaire David Winsberg at Macy’s Valley Fair

Are you a fan of the fabled Spanish Pimiento de Padron peppers?

The Russian Roulette of peppers that are sweet for the most part, but now and then one turns prickly hot and you can’t tell until you bite into it?

Then, you have farmer David Winsberg to thank for the fact that they now star on so many Bay Area menus and can be purchased easily at local farmers markets.

Winsberg’s Happy Quail Farms in East Palo Alto was believed to be the first commercial grower of this special pepper in this country.

Meet Chef Charlie Ayers and the Food Gal at Macy’s Valley Fair

Friday, 5. July 2013 5:25


If you missed your chance to check out last month’s demo at Macy’s Valley Fair in Santa Clara, now’s your chance to catch another.

I’m thrilled to be hosting a 6 p.m. cooking demo on July 11 with  none other than Charlie Ayers, the first ever Google executive chef who now owns his own restaurant, Calafia Cafe in Palo Alto’s Town & Country Village.

The eco-conscious  establishment offers plenty of healthful fare, including many vegetarian options.
