“The Northern California food scene is in many ways the North Star when we talk about important movements like food sustainability and the farm-to-table scene. You can’t talk about this world without mentioning my friend, Chef John Ash, a true leader in the space and the king of wine country cuisine. It’s no wonder that his partnership with pioneers of the seafood business, the team at Hog Island Oyster Co., is highlighted in this cookbook, which is as educational as it is beautiful and delicious. Dive in . . . you’re gonna dig it.” - GUY FIERI
