Savor the Flavor - October 2019

Editor's Note 

October 2019

IT'S OUR FIFTH BIRTHDAY! What a joy it has been to share the stories of so many fascinating people, breathtaking places and local treasures in the San Joaquin Valley. Let’s venture into another year of exploring together!

Savor the flavor of Fresno’s Underground Suppers – pop-up immersive dinners in sometimes wildly unusual locations. Adventure and mystery combine for a truly unforgettable experience. 

Figs and sprigs, cheese and berries, meticulously arranged in a way that makes them almost too pretty to eat – it’s food-meets-art. Jade Magnolia specializes in cheeseboards and charcuterie, and she loves showing folks how it’s done.

Who loves spiders? What… not you? Well, we’ve just learned about an event that might change your mind. The Tarantula Awareness Festival is one of Coarsegold’s most popular events, and you might be surprised to learn how important these hairy-legged creatures are to the environment. Watch the tarantula derby, enjoy the pumpkin bake-off and compete in the hairy legs contest - it’s a day full of fun.

Treasure hunters will find nirvana at the Bluebird Markets in Kingsburg and Fresno, where vendors offer unique, limited-quantity arts and crafts. The mother-daughter venture is perhaps best described as “French Nordic Country meets California Glam.” Sounds intriguing.

We’re so grateful to the advertisers who make this endeavor possible (it’s a mutually beneficial relationship!); the writers, photographers and designers who make this magazine so fun to read; and our faithful readers – we strive every day to make this a publication that you look forward to picking up each month. 

Happy birthday to us, and enjoy!
