Great Food Search: I Ate All That At Rogue Festival?

by Terrance McArthur


The Rogue Festival: the crown performing-arts jewel of Fresno’s Tower District, 9 days (or 10, if you count the Rogue Teaser, which I do) filled with music, dance, theatre, magic, comedy, and other things. I managed to see twenty-five shows this year, dashing from venue to venue to see as much as I could…but a chubby little reviewer’s gotta eat, right? Where can you grab some food when you’re on your way to somewhere else? Is there any place for a quick bite to eat? Let me put it this way—I did not lose weight during Rogue 2019.

The Great Food Search: The Best of 2017!

by Terrance Mc Arthur


Kings River Life’s The Great Food Search sends me (and sometimes my family and/or friends) eating across the San Joaquin Valley. In 2017, the series featured a baker’s dozen (that’s 13) of eating establishments featuring from tamales to killer burgers, from quesadillas to Tandoori pizzas. It was quite a year, and now I am asked to choose my favorites? Oh, the horror!

Food Expo 2015

Despite the drought, California is still the king of American agriculture, and the San Joaquin Valley is still the center of California agriculture. To help the Valley stay on top of the food heap, the Fresno Food Expo helps food producers (farmers) meet food buyers (market chains, restaurants, school districts…and people who like to eat). The fifth annual Expo happened July 23, with 121 producers meeting 917 buyers from all over the Valley, state, nation, and world, and 1100 happy people showing up for the evening’s public session.

Grapes in a Pouch. Root Beer Milk. Pepperoni Pizza Tamales – where can you find things like this?
The Fresno Food Expo!
It started as a way to expose local products to a wider number of buyers. It was held in March, which meant there wasn’t a lot of fresh produce available to promote. This year, the fourth Expo was moved to July 24, a time when the bounty of the Valley has begun to ripen, and what an amazing array of foods, products, and services there was!

High Quality Product; High Quality Experience: Casa de Tamales

by Tom Sims


Don’t just ask what makes Liz Sanchez of Casa de Tamales tick. That would be the wrong question. She doesn’t just tick; she pulsates with passion! It is the same passion when she talks about tamales, business, her family, her staff-family, her customers and her philosophy of giving back to the community. She does not separate her business from her life. It is one package with common interests.
