Recipes From The Rustic Soul of Healdsburg
Summer Edition - Collection of Six Bespoke Books (4"X6")

The bohemian enclave of Healdsburg, California has fast become a hotbed of exceptional farm to table cooking. Now, Healdsburg resident and former Dire Straits guitarist, Jack Sonni distills a summery selection of set menus by his favorite chefs, sharing a mouthwatering taste of Healdsburg’s food revolution.

"Gatherings - Recipes from the Rustic Soul of Healdsburg," is a collection of recipes from some of the most exciting chefs working in America today. A featherweight curation of six bespoke, pocket-sized, celebratory feasts, from appetizer to dessert — each with cheese course, cocktail and wine recommendations from Sonoma County’s acclaimed producers - "Gatherings" serves as a complete guide to creating and sharing the Healdsburg way of life with friends and family.

Food in Healdsburg is both a passion and an art form, but most of all it has conviviality at its heart. Seasonal, sustainable and straightforward to create, even for kitchen novices, the Gatherings’ dishes evoke the very essence of a Sonoma summer.

Long heralded for its wine - Healdsburg is at the crossroads of three of California’s eminent wine-producing regions - "Gatherings" will enable those far from California to experiment with the glorious cooking that’s emerging from Healdsburg - hearty, healthy and indulgent - food with personality that’s made for sharing, each and every summer.

Whether you’re planning an elaborate picnic or a garden supper for friends, Gathering’s six set menus — featuring wild salmon in fig leaves, buttermilk fried chicken and grilled lamb tongue with burnt tomatoes — provide a culinary snapshot of the Healdsburg approach to food, flavor and fun.

Featuring: Campo Fina • Diavola • Franco’s One World Sausages • Jimtown Store
Savvy On First • Scopa • The Spinster Sisters
