If you are like me, you have been wondering why Steve has not posted of late. Turns out his computer is not feeling well so I (Richard) have hacked in from the outside to let you all know to stay tuned! While we wait for Steve's return, here is a link describing our friend Joanne Neft's great new cookbook "Placer County Real Food." Joanne spent a year going to Farmer's markets in Placer County one day and using the local food to cook dinner for 8 the next day. The cookbook presents the menus and the recipes along with pictures that at time rival Steve's.
