Napa Valley Wine Train! Organic Food & Wine!



Watch on YouTube

In this segment from Organic Living TV with the Hippy Gourmet our Gastronaut and sustainability reporter Chris Nolder hops a ride on the Napa Valley Wine Train!

As we wind our way through the majestic vineyards and rolling hills across Napa, California's famed wine region, we meet up with Chef Kelly Macdonald in the restored 1915 Pullman coach kitchen! We feature a wonderful Yam & Goat Cheese Rellenos, Cabernet Beet Salad and some wonderful organic wine pairings!

The Napa Wine Train is the definition of romance with an approachable elegance that harkens back to a simpler, more glorious time. The food is delicious, the wine is superb, and the staff make you feel like you're on a fantastic European holiday. Organic Living TV gives the Napa Wine train a 5-star review!

Hippy Gourmet at Google for DooF-a-Palooza!


Yesterday we spent the day at Google's headquarters in Mountain View, California at an annual event called "DooF-a-Palooza" - which stands for 'Food spelled backwards' - and is all about supporting a new PBS kids cooking series called "DooF"

http://www.FoodBackwards.com

Teaching kids where their food comes from and inspiring them at an early age to be excited about good nutrition is a wonderful thing!

The event takes place all over Google's main campus area, with fun, interactive booths set up for kids to participate in all aspects of learning about food.

What a great chance to introduce kids to their local farmers and food producers, and for everyone to be reminded how much love and artistry goes into growing and nurturing all our abundant fruits and veggies!

Of course the Hippy Gourmet film crew was on hand to capture the event for an upcoming episode we're planning, and we even had our executive producer and director James Ehrlich out there baking solar, vegan cookies! As usual, we used the SolarOvens.org solar cookers as well as the Tulsi Solar Cooker to demonstrate how simple, easy and grid-free baking yummy cookies can be in a solar oven!

Google is an incredible company that cares deeply for the community, both surrounding and global. We were so blessed to have the full support of Google chefs, Google staff and a multitude of volunteers that helped us every step of the way!
