The Dude of Food is one of those folks that had no idea there are so many types of apples to choose from. I read in National Geographic that apples have been modified by grafting for the last 100 years.
I knew that apples are sprayed with edible wax before they get to the market for preservation, but really had no idea the number of varieties of apples that are available.
For example who knows the difference between a Benton Red and a Blue Pearmain apple? There are Scott Winters, Seek No Further, Esopus Spitzenburg, Zabergau, Empire, Twenty Ounce, Wolf River, Ribston Pippin, Opalescent, Nodhead, Deane 9 ounce, Wagner, Rolfe, Starkey and Orange Pippin’s. That is a list of some of just the red ones!
In green apples you can choose from Winter Banana, Bramley’s Seedling, Tolman Sweet, Stark, Calville Blanc d’hiver, Pound Sweet, Gary Pearmain, Rhode Island Greening, Crisps, Granny Smith’s and more!
Then you get into the mixed green and red apples! Whew, the Dude of Food is thinking about having an apple martini right now.
Apples are a food that have been grafted and modified for years and who knew? The Dude of Food wonders now if avocados are the same way?
If you love sushi then all you need to know is the above web address. This will lead you to a place called Hana Japanese Restaurant and the Best Sushi in California!! I have never heard of black throated mackerel and normally don’t like mackerel unless it’s aji, but this black throated mackerel is great. The blue fin tuna belly was so good I had seconds. Same with the black throated mackerel.
The special thing in a spoon was really good. It was all good. The bill was $100. for lunch and the Dude of Food could have easily gone bigger but it was awesome tasting and well worth the splurge.
If you are ever near Santa Rosa or in Rohnert Park, CA, go to this place and see for yourself what quality sushi is supposed to be like.
This place is cool. Not all creepy and crowded like the Russian River bar. Third Street Aleworks has a cool staff, good beers and also makes a good pizza too.
These are beers the Dude of Food would like to rep and add to my international food sales portfolio.
The Dude of Food went to visit the crew at St. Florian’s Brewery.
Good people and many beers to choose from.
I liked the IPA’s best and want to add this brand to my food portfolio for the world markets.
See their beer selection list – http://www.stfloriansbrewery.com/our-beers/
Every grand family has a coat of arms, so while sitting in Prague, the Dude of Food created his own plate of arms. It needs a ketchup D and a mustard F.
Below are some other famous family crests an coat of arms.

The Dude of Food had just left Munich. It was with painful heart that he dragged himself away from Minga, a city that he loves. He was prepared for the long flight back to LA by staying up all night on his last visit in town before he left. He knew he had a 1 1/2 hour layover in Dusseldorf Airport’s Terminal ‘C’. Upon arrival to Gate 32 of Terminal C a vision similar in description to something like an oasis bearing a food mermaid revealed itself. A restaurant at the next gate had a sign that announced Italian food and beer that read Zigolini.
At gate 34 this small restaurant named Zigolini offered some good looking pastas and pizza for a reasonable price. The Dude of Food asked for a large beer. The guy next to me received a veggie pizza and that was it. I needed one also. I asked for the sausage and bacon pizza.
This pizza was better than nearly all I’ve ever had in Firenze, Rome, Germany or maybe even ever! Certainly the Best Valued and Best Tasting Airport Food that the Dude of Foodhttps://www.facebook.com/dudeoffoodpage/ has ever encountered. If you are ever near the Dusseldorf airport and have some time to kill, the Dude of Food highly recommends that you go see for yourself about the pizza at Zigolini Italian Food. The guy who made it was a really nice muslim guy.
