We Left Our Artichoke in San Francisco

Nov 18, 2015 on Cooking Channel at 9:00 PM


Fran and Sal are in the Bay Area to celebrate the 2nd anniversary of the Berkeley location of Artichoke Basille's. To reward the staff for all of the hard work, they are surprising them with an anniversary party on a beautiful vineyard in Napa. While... (more) in San Francisco, the guys check out a Goat Hill Pizza, a favorite in town for 40 years, to try a couple of their time-honored pies. On their way out to Napa, the guys come across something that makes them hit the brakes and pull over. The Choke Coach is a food truck that serves nothing but artichoke-based dishes. They truck is family run (Filipino husband/wife and their daughter) and hails from Castroville - the artichoke capitol of the world. The guys finally make it to Charter Oak Winery in Napa and meet their hosts Robert and Layla Fanucci. They couple give Fran and Sal a tour of the vineyard and wine making process, and then cook up a delicious meal in anticipation of the Artichoke staff's arrival. In the end, everyone arrives, the guys make a toast to Artichoke Berkeley, and food and drink flow as the sun sets in Napa.
