As anyone who has spent time in Napa Valley knows, Mustards Grill is an institution in the wine country—the friendly restaurant where locals first started going for a full plate of fabulous food and a glass of Napa's finest. Chef-owner Cindy Pawlcyn, founding chef of San Francisco's original Fog City Diner, put down her roots in Napa over 15 years ago, bringing her midwestern sensibility and flair for reinventing American food to the valley. Ever since then, Mustards has been affectionately known as the fancy rib joint with way, way too many wines. Gorgeous full-color food photography from Saveur photographer Laurie Smith.Awards: 2002 James Beard Award Winner "Mustards is universally loved by local residents and tourists alike for its smoky, tender, spicy baby back ribs; cornmeal-coated fried green tomatoes; tasty Asian-marinated flank steak; Chinese chicken noodle salad; and, of course, Mustards' always-crisp tangle of deep-fried onion threads. The enduring vitality of this place comes from the fact [that Cindy Pawlcyn] put all the dishes she loved on the menu: country dishes transformed by her sprightly offbeat style and sparkle." —FOOD LOVER'S GUIDE TO SAN FRANCISCOFrom the Hardcover edition.
Nourish Cooking oil is soy free and 100% organic. Made from a blend of the best organic culinary oils, this oil is meant to nourish and provide essential nutrients and protein for those who don't use soy. Uniquely blended, our cooking oils have a high concentration of polyunsaturated fats which increases the good cholesterol. Good cholesterol is HDL Cholesterol. HDL cholesterol is known as "good" cholesterol, because high levels of HDL seem to protect against heart attack. Low levels of HDL (less than 40 mg) also increase the risk of heart disease. Experts think that HDL tends to carry cholesterol away from the arteries and back to the liver, where it's passed from the body. Some experts believe that HDL removes excess cholesterol from arterial plaque, slowing its buildup. Rich in omega 3 and omega 6 fatty acids this oil is has been keenly blended to work well with any diet. This blend is rich in olive oil, sesame, and virgin coconut oil. Flavorful and with a slightly nutty flavor can be used for general cooking purposes, sauteing, baking or simply drizzled on your food.

The item is a semi-solid product.If the product has been kept/stored in an area or facility that would put the product in higher than “typical room temperatures”, the product will start to transform into a liquid form. This is a typical trait of all semi-solid products, not just inclusive of this particular product. As the product would come to room temperature, it will again become solidified. This process, in becoming solidified may take a few hours, dependent upon the environment the product has been exposed to. The “solids” at the bottom of the jar when stirred the product, would be particles that had not turned to liquid form. Again, the “watery” state indicates was due to the temperature the product had been exposed to. The product has various uses – many in which the product can be utilized in liquid form and semi-solid.

Organic food is the best food possible. It’s synonymous with premium quality, delicious flavor, conscientious farming, and optimum health. It’s what we need to feed our kids, it’s what we deserve to feed ourselves. And thanks in part to Myra Goodman, co-owner and cofounder of Earthbound Farm with her husband, Drew, organic food is now available just about anywhere fresh food is sold, becoming more mainstream every day. Not only has Myra been growing organic food for over twenty years, she has been cooking with it, too. In Food to Live By she combines her twin food passions, serving up hundreds of recipes, ideas, shopping and cooking tips, health notes, and more. Illustrating the book are full-color photographs throughout that bring readers right into the breathtaking California sunshine.

This fine oil comes from the pressed nuts of the Macadamia tree. It is a priceless delight for the skin and has proven itself to be one of the best regenerative oils available. It is high in monounsaturated fatty acids, and closely resembles sebum (the oil naturally produced by ones skin to help protect it). Macadamia oil usage for skin and hair care: 1. Facial moisturizer. 2. Makeup Remover - You can also use macadamia oil to gently remove makeup, even stubborn mascara. Or if you like use half macadamia oil and half jojoba. You'll get great results with any of these options. 3. Eye serum - Because it absorbs so quickly, macadamia oil makes a moisturizing and reparative eye serum that you can even use under makeup. Use just the smallest amount and gently pat it around your eyes. 4. Facial cleanser - Not only will macadamia oil remove your makeup, it will gently but effectively cleanse your skin. 5. Body Moisturizer - use macadamia oil as an allover moisturizer when you get out of the shower. 6. Hair moisturizer - if you struggle with heat-damaged or dry hair, we would highly recommend using just a few drops of macadamia oil on the ends of your hair. It works wonders to soften and moisturize!
