Join British/American journalist Frances Rivetti on a delicious romp through her adoptive Gold Rush-era city of Petaluma and surrounding Pacific coastal countryside, 40 miles north of San Francisco, Northern California.
Fog Valley Crush is a love letter to a micro-region of farmers, food innovators, artists and dreamers — featuring a colorful assortment of friends, neighbors and a community’s key farming players, past and present.
A brief introduction to the author’s native East Anglian Fenland sets the scene for a country-girl’s coming-of-age and subsequent trans-Atlantic exploration of today’s North American farm-to-table culture.
Part memoir, part reportage, Fog Valley Crush is a celebration and a sharing of an extraordinary place — the last secret corner of wine country. Everyone is welcome to the best of the west in the warm and quirky haven of earthy hospitality that is the farmstead frontier.
Vintage and modern recipes are peppered throughout the pages of Fog Valley Crush, a taste of Petaluma’s pioneer roots paired with a community’s present day preference that harks back to a more wholesome way of life.
Pull up a chair, pour yourself a glass of wine and settle in for a while. In a time when we all want to know where our food and drink comes from, Fog Valley Crush makes for a light and refreshing, yet compelling argument on sustainable lifestyle.
