  • Eric Adler from Puesto

    eapuesto-kpri-headerWith locations in La Jolla and Seaport Village, Puesto is family-owned and operated by brothers, Eric and Alan Adler, and their cousin Isi Lombrozo, native San Diegans and alums of La Jolla High School. As first generation Americans, whose family descends from Mexico, they were influenced by the culinary flavors of authentic, home-cooked Mexican meals. While living in many other cities throughout the United States they were all captivated by how the local flavors and unique restaurants represented the people and culture. Puesto has become an extension of that inspiration and represents the authentic flavors of Mexico with the best ingredients of San Diego.  Check out Puesto at

  • Chef Roy Hendrickson of Vessel at the Kona Kai Resort & Marina


    Situated on the very tip of Shelter Island, Kona Kai Resort and Marina and its newly transformed signature restaurant, Vessel, welcome Roy Hendrickson as executive chef. Boasting more than 13 years of experience in the culinary world, Hendrickson joins the food and beverage team at an exciting time for the restaurant. A Southern California native, Chef Hendrickson’s love of cooking was born as a child when he would join his grandmother and mother in the preparation of family meals. His first restaurant position was as a server at the Coventry Hill Hotel in England, where he spent his high school years while his parents served as local missionaries. Hendrickson’s first professional cooking position brought him back to Southern California with subsequent work at various local eateries.

  • Shawn Holder, Owner of the Pannikin


    The Pannikin is a San Diego institution with locations in Leucadia, La Jolla and now at the San Diego airport. Owner Shawn Holder has San Diego roots that go way back as his dad was one of the first City of San Diego lifeguard chiefs. They roast their own coffee, and all the baked goods are made in-house. This column I wrote in the Coast News pretty much sums up the Leucadia location.

  • Evelyn Weidner and Barbara Grice from the Encinitas Lima Bean Faire September 27


    Lick the Plate is joined by Evelyn Weidner and Barbara Grice from the San Dieguito Heritage Museum to celebrate ‘ŒAll Things GrowingŠ…Our Agriculture Heritage’ with the 6th Annual Battle of the Lima and Other Beans Cook Off on Saturday, September 27. Local chefs, both amateur and professional, can use any dry bean to create their astoundingly creative dishes. Prizes will be awarded to the top dishes served. Last year, hundreds of locals experienced and enjoyed the Lima Bean Faire, so come early to be sure you get to taste all the entries!

    The San Dieguito Heritage Museum brings to life the history of the entire North San Diego County area covered by the original Spanish land grant, collecting, preserving and interpreting the local history of Encinitas, Olivenhain, Leucadia, Cardiff, Solana Beach, Del Mar and Rancho Santa Fe. A first this year will be walk-through tours of the Teten House, the earliest farmhouse in Olivenhain, which has been relocated onto the Museum grounds. The Teten House is currently under extensive renovation, so you’ll get an early peek at what we believe will be one of our most noteworthy exhibits.

    For the kids, there will be a Petting Zoo from the Olivenhain 4-H Club and other activities, plus a large Plant and Flower Silent Auction for gardeners, and enough baked goods to make your sweet tooth smile.  Of course, admission to all the Museum buildings is free.

    To participate as a chef in either the amateur or professional divisions, please register at or call 760-632-9711 with questions. Event hours are noon to 4 pm, with food served from 12:30 p.m. to 2:30 p.m. Prizes will be awarded at 3:00 p.m. The San Dieguito Heritage Museum is located at 450 Quail Gardens Drive in Encinitas. More information can be found at or by calling 760-632-9711.
