< 1 day ago
Today's guest is Alice Bamford, who together with, Ann Eysenring, authored the recently released One Gun Ranch Malibu Cookbook, which Debi insists is actually beyond a cookbook! It has Biodynamic recipes and explains how to live a really vibrant life. It's a fantastic book and it's doing really well, selling to top chefs. Listen in to find out more about Alice's awesome book and her wonderful, Biodynamic Ranch.
One Gun Ranch is a magical, magical place, which is located in Malibu. Debi's been volunteering there, at least once a week, for the last ten months or so, as she's a firm believer in Biodynamics and she's a follower of the Biodynamic Principals in gardening. Debi loves the Ranch for many reasons- the drive up the mountains with the hairpin turns, the gardens, and being greeted by wandering free animals. There are pigs, alpacas, sheep, goats, horses, donkeys, dogs and Debi's favorite little guy, Cesar, who doesn't seem know that he's a pig!
