Sanger

by Lorie Lewis Ham


This Valley is filled with creative people of all kinds–musicians, actors, writers, artists, and more. This week we are chatting with Sanger artist Teresa Nelson.

The 2021 Fresno Rogue Festival has come and gone, it’s virtual shows departed, but I still have my memories…of food. Usually, I write about all the Tower District restaurants I go to during the festival. Instead, I picked up meals on the way home from work or threw something together at home. This episode of The Great Food Search will follow the journey of what I ate during Virtual Rogue 2021.

What a year for the Great Food Search! Quarantine! Lockdown! Shelter in Place! forced to review my own cooking! Take-out Time! Looking for places that kept COVID-safe!
Here are my top eateries of 2020—a year that will go down in infamy!

Wouldn’t you like to party like it’s Two Thousand Nineteen? Things were so much simpler, then. Now…oh, boy. Imagine what it would be like to run a restaurant during this pandemic. No, you can’t. Yes, you can. No, you can’t. Yes, you…maybe. Owners have to find some way to make things work and keep their employees employed.

Just like the City of Reedley, Sanger is getting creative with their Christmas parade this year and doing a reverse parade. We chatted with Tammy Wolfe, President and Chief Executive Officer of the Sanger District Chamber of Commerce to learn more.

‘Tis November, and the Great Food Search’s heart (and stomach) turns to Pumpkin Smash Smoothies, but the local Jamba Juice branches are out of them, so I’m out of luck. Where to go? Well, there was one place in Sanger, and I went there…and I went there…and WOW!

Halloween is not cancelled. Even as the coronavirus pandemic has so totally altered life as we know it, the seriously spooky show goes on at Hobb’s Grove, outside Sanger.

It’s October. I know this is The Great Food Search, but do you really want to hear me tell of delicate dining? Of course not! You want the ooey-gooey, sticky-licky sweets, the sugar-laden and calorie-unconscious! Let’s go satisfy your sweet tooth!

You have to eat, right?
Restaurants have to make money to survive, so they will bend over backwards to follow the rules, and hope people will drive up…and drive out with some food.
Let’s eat!

What do you do for food during the pandemic?
Do you sit in a restaurant with other people, hoping that nobody is infected?
Do you hide in your home and try to survive on your year’s supply of chewy granola bars?
Do you look for minimum-contact food places where you can order and pick up without fear? Yeah, that’s what I’m trying to do with these play-it-safe editions of The Great Food Search.

If you can’t take it with you, don’t get it.­ This set of take-outs are centered around my home and work.
El Pollo Loco—4865 E. Kings Canyon Rd., Fresno— Of course, I’m chicken! I always have been. I do get cravings for red meat, but I’m more of a chicken aficionado. I have clutched buckets of KFC and crunched my way through Popeye’s, but that flame-kissed yumminess from El Pollo Loco gets me every time.

It happened. My daughter and I got sick of our own cooking. After three months of “It Came From My Kitchen,” we (and my wife) couldn’t take any more variations of Slow-Cooker Surprise and “Stuff Added to Packaged Mixes,” but our editor didn’t want us going to restaurants and dining like nothing was wrong with the world, even if they were open for business. For that reason, this Great Food Search features take-out food. (Lorie wanted places that deliver, too, but I have a perfectly rational fear of strangers coming to my door.)

First and foremost FBR would like to express our humble gratitude towards our extraordinary supporters, adopters, and fosters who have helped when we needed it the most. Though time will pass and life return to a more normal pace, your invaluable support will be remembered. You made sure our dogs were well taken care, and they appreciate you!

Recently KRL checked in with several local theatre companies to see how shelter-in-place was affecting them and what people could do to help. This week we checked in with several local artists that KRL has featured in the past to see how they are doing. While this is only a small handful of the many artists in the area, I am sure if your favorite artist isn’t listed they would be happy to have you reach out to them on social media.
