Save the Gravenstein Apple - Bay Area restaurants serving them in August

rworange | Aug 2, 2009 09:07 PM

While doing an gravenstein apple crawl in the Sebastopol area, K & K orchard handed me a pretty postcard with an apple crate sticker that Slow Food was giving out.

Here's a link on the situation

From thousands of orchards in Sonoma County, there are only a few left. The apples are not as profitable as vineyards.

It has been at least a decade since I've been in the area with the orchards. After hearing this, driving down the road, it was true. Where apple trees once grew, there were now grapes.

Anyway Slow Food has a list of restaurants that will have Gravenstein Apple dishes in August. It includes lots from all over the Bay Area such as Ad Hoc, Jardiniere, Cesar, Chez Panisse, etc

Here's the list

Hope people will order and report back on their Gravenstein dishes this month.

So far I've had swell Gravenstein cider and Gravenstein strudel at Kowlowski, a nice Gravenstein pie at Mom's Apple Pie. Andy's is selling Gravenstein cider. Screamin Mimi's didn't have apple ice cream yet. Now I need to look around the East Bay.
