Chef Scott Youklis Of Maverick Shops the Market

Last week I joined chef Scott Youklis of Maverick restaurant as he checked items off his shopping list and sampled some early stone fruit varieties. Maverick is one of over a dozen local restaurants that will be participating in a nation-wide campaign called “Dine Out for the Gulf” next week. It’s an event spearheaded by Jimmy Galle, owner of Gulfish, a local company that supplies restaurants with crawfish, blue crab and shrimp from the Gulf region. From June 10–12, Maverick will donate 10 percent of all sales to communities impacted by the oil spill.

Market Watch: Shopping with Chef Chris Cosentino for More Than the Bits

Shopping with chef Chris Cosentino of Incanto restaurant can be an adventure. His Food Network series Chef vs. City and his many appearances on shows like Iron Chef America and Best Thing I Ever Ate have made him something of a local celebrity. As we walked through the market on a recent Saturday heads were definitely turning and I even caught a few folks whipping out their camera phones to get a candid photo of the chef in action. Chris’s gregarious personality lends itself well to television, but he’s deeply dedicated to the Bay Area and has a tremendous amount of respect for the farmers who grow the food he cooks.

Market Watch: Goat Crazy!

Redwood Hill Farm and Creamery was founded by the Bice family over 40 years ago. Since the late Seventies, daughter Jennifer Bice has run the Sebastopol-based dairy and creamery, where she’s maintained a herd of 200 goats and developed a range of high-quality products. Today, Redwood Hill brings not only its cheeses to our Saturday market, but artisan yogurts and kefir, as well. A longtime proponent of sustainable animal husbandry, Redwood Hill also became the nation’s first certified humane goat diary in 2006.
