Our Voice in the Industry!

I’d like to congratulate Rick Stewart! He was elected to join the California Grocers Association Board of Directors! Here’s a little bit about CGA from their website: 

"Since 1898, the California Grocers Association has been the voice of the California food industry. CGA is a non-profit, statewide trade association representing over 300 retail members operating more than 6,000 food stores in California and Nevada, and approximately 150 grocery supplier companies. Retail membership includes chain and independent supermarkets, convenience stores and mass merchandisers. The Association is recognized as the industry leader in the areas of government and industry relations, public relations, education and communications.” 

 Rick has been attending the Grocers Day at the Capitol for a few years now, tackling issues that effect all of us such as prop 47 (early release), recycling and anything else currently on the state agenda. He brings a fresh rural perspective to their lobbying efforts and we couldn’t be more Hometown Proud of him (I happen to be his biggest fan)!

At the last CGA Board Meeting spouses were invited to participate in a cooking event at Silverado Cooking School! What a blast! I had an opportunity to cook (you KNOW how much I love that) with people from our industry (I love the grocery business) and hear their stories. AND the food. Holy Moly it was amazing. I was on the team making Chicken Paillards, aka known as cutlets :) with Parmesan, Greens and Capers. So DeLISH. Unfortunately I don’t have room here to put all the recipes BUT I will post them all on the Green Grocerette blog! You gotta try the Buttermilk Ice Cream recipe… and the Quince Tart… and the…. you get the idea.


Huge Hometown thanks to my best friend, husband and business partner for taking on this commitment to be our voice in the industry!
