Back Pats: Food News on Fieri, Mali and Davis

Fieri goes into burger biz, national kudos for Davis and Mali. Yay us.

If you think Guy Fieri is the only Sonoma County chef getting national kudos, think again. We’ve got a revolving door of praise coming our way on a pretty regular basis. Here are three notable epicurean announcements from our neck of the woods.

Adam Mali wins NYC Lamb Jam: Former Nick’s Cove Chef (now Exec Chef at SF’s MarketBar) was named Lamb Jam Master on Sept. 25 in the Big Apple. Four regional winners came together for the event, but SoCo’s Mali took top awards wtih his braised Fallon Hills Ranch lamb shank with lemon-stewed cannelini beans and a lavender mint gremolata.  “From San Francisco to New York, Chef Mali’s dish took home top honors and we are thrilled to welcome him to the Lamb Jam Hall of Fame,” said Megan Wortman, Executive Director of the American Lamb Board.

Sheana Davis of Epicurean Connection in Sonoma will be featured in a pilot show for Food Network with Top Chef All Star winner Richard Blais. During the show, Blais will be making cheese at Davis’ new Sonoma location, slated for an Oct. 15 opening.

Guy Fieri will be getting into the burger biz. The local food personality has joined with Carnival Cruise lines as part of a $500 million investment with familiar celebrities and brands. The on-board restaurants will be called “Guys Burger Joint” and feature hand-crafted burgers and fresh-cut fries with original recipes created for Carnival. Condiments and sauces will be a main attraction, allowing eaters to create DIY burgers at self-serve stations. Decor will be California-centric with surfboards and coastal maps embedded in the tabletops.

  1. Well, I don’t know the guy and don’t watch his stuff on TV, but I’m not a high-brow elitist, I will say that. Everything doesn’t have to be sprigs and 90 dollar plates that leave you hungry.

    But I would be kind of afraid to have that guy near my food. Too much sweat and chemicals.

  2. Keep writing, we appreciate true journalism!
    So many hard working chefs, cooks, restaurant owners and hospitality workers, a small kind word can go a long ways! A thank you card is a lost art! So be kind to your neighbors and enjoy living in Sonoma County!

  5. Maybe you think Guy Fee-eddy “is a complete tool” but I think he’s alright. If you actually bother to check him out, you find that he doesn’t try to pass himself off as any more than what he is, and he frequently props Sonoma County. I think his haters are just jealous. BTW “guy is a complete tool” is an *opinion*, not a “factual stating”.

    1. You’re welcome to have intelligent opinions, but its time to stop the hate train. It makes Sonoma County look so petty. We’re home to amazing chefs like Doug Keane, Josh Silvers, Jeff Mall, Adam Mali and a thousand other talented kitchen staff and toques (nice that no one bothered to congratulate Mali or Sheana) — we can be secure in that knowledge. That’s 99.9% of what I write about. Bitterness makes us look so pathetic and country-fried. I’m bored of the unimaginative, childish shit throwing at someone who contributes a fortune to worthy causes in this county and elsewhere. Hating on others only reflects badly on the hater.

      1. Great job Heather. And great job to all the Sonoma County Cheifs. The foodies come here from far off places to eat at these resturaunts. You can’t have taste buds if you talk S**T.

    2. if it’s not about guy . it don’t matter to him. if he is not right up front . he’s not there so if i were you i’d get my nose out of his butt..
