Sondra Bernstein, owner of “the girl & the fig” restaurant in Sonoma, hosts this weekly podcast along with her friend Brian Casey, veteran of the hospitality industry for over 30 years. They discuss all aspects of the food world, from seeds and beans to fries and foie gras. “If you can eat it, we want to talk about it”. Guests include famous chefs, food critics, local farmers, cheese makers and mushroom foragers. No subject is “off the table”. Sometimes controversial but always delicious.

We had a fun conversation with Clark as he tells us about his fascinating journey as a waiter on the railroad, working eighteen-hour days on the line from Oakland to Chicago, managed a cheese and wine shop at the base of Nob Hill, opened the San Francisco branch of the Oakville Grocery and retooled the original Napa Valley store. He knows just about everyone in food including a lasting friendship with the legendary James Beard. He was the first to retail Laura Chenel’s California Chevre and spent countless hours finding and sampling foodstuffs with the likes of Marion Cunningham, Alice Waters, Ruth Reichl, Jeremiah Tower and Catherine Brandel.
He splits his time between New York and Guernville in Sonoma County and happens to be one of Sonoma County’s biggest advocates for farmers and the incredible Sonoma bounty.

Talk Show Host, Journalist & Eater based in San Francisco.
“Grew up in Niagara Canada, attended several fine schools including Western in London (full disclosure, Ontario Canada). I worked for a theater, a symphony, in restaurants and even a B&B before moving into media, supplanting my original career path of an educator. I was only supposed to visit San Francisco on my way West but fell in love and never made it to New Zealand. I am an Emmy Nominated and IACP Award-winning (come on- pretty proud- worth repeating) TV and Radio host. A traveler, wine judge, culinary competition judge; happy, chatty dude with a killer Rolodex. Lover of food, and of politics, so much that I have talked about it live for two hours a day six days a week for years… and got paid to do it.” We talk about this and so much more!!!! [EP80]
