Celebrity chefs make a farm-fresh strudel at Edna Valley Vineyard
San Luis Obispo County’s culinary bounty is once again in the spotlight, thanks to a popular PBS television show.
“Moveable Feast with Fine Cooking,” a cooking-and-travel adventure show co-hosted by celebrity chefs Pete Evans and Curtis Stone, showcases a San Luis Obispo winery, an Arroyo Grande grower and a Morro Bay oyster farm in an episode premiering on Sunday.
In the episode, Stone and his travel companions — Santa Barbara chef David Rosner and Los Angeles chef Sherry Yard — explore the oyster beds of Morro Bay Oyster Co. and pick fresh, pesticide-free produce and flowers at Rutiz Family Farms in Arroyo Grande.
The trio then prepares a grand feast at Edna Valley Vineyard in San Luis Obispo, featuring grilled yellowtail tuna, raw Pacific Gold oysters with chili-and-ginger granita and caramelized apple-and-fennel strudel a la mode.
Now in its fifth season, “Moveable Feast” showcases innovative chefs and regional flavors in locations as diverse as France, Italy and Puerto Rico. The show is produced by WGBH and Fine Cooking magazine.
“Moveable Feast with Fine Cooking” airs at 10 a.m. Sunday on KQED. For more information, visit www.kqed.org or www.pbs.org/food/shows/moveable-feast-with-fine-cooking.
