California Heartland

Episode 922
The Benziger Family Winery received the first Endangered Species Coalition Champion Award for Land Stewardship. What exactly does such an award have to do with growing and making wine? Food and Lifestyle Expert, Laura McIntosh teams up with chef JR Rothenberger from JR’s Texas Bar-b-que. Together they rub meats the right way with JR’s famous dry rub and show you how to smoke brisket, pork ribs or chicken in your grill at home! When even the most casual of foodies hears the restaurant name "The French Laundry" images of succulent, yummy goodness plated to perfection is what’s conjured up in their minds. As large as Monterey County’s agriculture is – it’s as varied and includes not just leafy greens but also fruits and fresh fish! We’ll take you to Moss Landing and check out a nautical themed bed and breakfast – owned and operated by a real ship captain. We’ll also meet Vince Gizdich of Gizdich Ranch in Watsonville, California.
