When you think of Northern California, most folks make the mistake of thinking that means San Francisco. Not even close. This week, we head to the small Pacific Coast town of Mendocino and that is definitely in Northern California—about 150 miles north of San Francisco.
It was originally settled by Portuguese and Chinese immigrants, and Mendocino has now grown into a small California capital of artistic expression.
We’re broadcasting from the Heritage House Resort, which has its own history. Start with the movie Same Time, Next Year, which was filmed throughout the hotel, with scenes overlooking the dramatic coast. If you’re seeking authentic farm-to-table cuisine, this is the place. Lots of surprises on this week’s show, from one of the real surprise destinations of Northern California…Mendocino.
