Burgundy? Tuscany? New Orleans? Santa Fe? If it’s known for its food, Chef Charles Vollmar is writing about it.
“Chef Charlie,” as he is known around Orinda, has the enviable task of visiting far-off and often not-so-far-off regions, meeting interesting people and fellow cooks, and cajoling fantastic local recipes out of them for all of you to enjoy and share in.
His tales of epicurean adventure in lovely, sunlit places appear here most every week under our “DigiBites” column offering and are fast becoming a place for people in the 24/680 to meet and talk about recipes, flavors, prep, and kitchen gadgetry.
DigiBites is for people who like to cook – and people who like to hang out with people who like to cook. Questions? Olive oil or salt in the pasta pot? Looking for the best seafood, spices, mustard in the 24/680? Drop the chef a line or two… he likes to talk about his favorite pastime.
And his next DigiBites is on the stove and simmering.
