As a Korean-American foodie who resides in West Oakland, I’m lucky that there’s a slew of fine eateries not too far from our home all along Telegraph Avenue in Temescal.

Pondering what would go best with apple balsamic vinegar and syrup, I decided to make some slow roasted baby back ribs. Because I love the taste of pork with apples, I used the fewest ingredients possible, adding a rub of only ground fennel and coriander (along with salt and pepper). After slow roasting for an hour and half, the ribs were fall-off-the-bone tender. I then brushed on the balsamic vinegar for a glaze and added a second layer of apple syrup for extra sweetness.
I’d driven through Boonville with my Dad and my sisters once, all too briefly en route to Mendocino. We stopped at the Boonville General Store for a sandwich and sat outside admiring the coolness of the little stretch of road and the delightfully slow pace of life. All along Hwy 128 there were orchards, farm stands, hidden hiking trails, and–of course–vineyards. I vowed to come back and do some exploring.
