We have a new event at the Market called Layover. On Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays, we stay open until 9:00 PM and people “Layover” while waiting for a table at one of the great restaurants here on Main St. in Guerneville. Yummy bites are served along with $8 glasses of amazing wines.
Last Friday we decided to give people the chance to “upgrade” to a tasty dinner. The menu offered up lemon and rosemary roasted chicken wings; roasted potatoes, carrots and shallots; and tasty salad dressed with the Market’s Champagne Vinaigrette.
Large nondescript buildings in Sonoma County often signal a wine storage facility or a winery sans tasting room. Nestled on the east side of the 116 near Occidental Road is one of these unusually curious outposts thathouses Gourmet Mushrooms, Inc. While you hardly notice the massive structure as you are heading for a day of wine tasting or recreation at the river, redwoods or cost, the contents and activity beyond the exterior are something to be seen (and tasted). You can skip to the end of this post for the Savory Mushroom and Onion Biscuit Bread Pudding recipe.
