Petaluma Wins First Devil Egg Contest

opening Petaluma Devils Egg Competition Coming to barber cellars And the Barber of my souls On Saturday, June 4th, from noon to 2pm, it promises to be really fun and delicious. Why no one thought of this earlier is a mystery. but when Lauren Barber She reached out to me to see what I thought of the idea and if I wanted to be a judge, I said I thought it was a great idea. Of course, I feel that way with most food competitions, but especially this one, where Petaluma adopted the nickname “Egg Basket to World” over a century ago, yet never had a devilish egg competition.

This new event is looking for contenders, and let’s be honest—who hasn’t indulged in scrambled eggs after getting a fancy deviled egg at a wedding, Super Bowl party, or restaurant and thought, “Can I do that?”

Entries to the competition are free, but it will be limited to 65 only, and participants are required to submit thirty defenids. The jury, really including you, will blindly taste the Little Devils and award 1st, 2nd and 3rd place winners bragging rights and a bottle of wine or spirit of their choice from Barber. I think this is going to be a very popular event and with limited space, it would be helpful to be a participant this year because those who help launch a new food event are often the first to get invitations to next year’s event.

Guests tastings are invited to purchase tickets for a 65-order experience, hosted in the Barber Cellars and Barber Lee Spirits tasting rooms, with all ticket proceeds, and a portion of wine and spirits sales (both by bottle and by bottle), going to Petaluma People Service Center. There will also be a couple of check raffles, as all of that proceeds will also go to PPSC.

Entry forms and more information about ticket sales should be available by the time of this publication at or

If you’re looking to fill your freezer with meat for the summer barbecue season, this is the way to do it, knowing you’re getting your protein high locally.

La Fiesta Pizza

If you avoid crowds Cinco de Mayo Thursday May 5th Brix Pizzaria He has a special pizza show for your personal joke, aptly called “La Fiesta”. A fan favorite, La Fiesta’s taco pizza, starts with beans and sauce, then is topped with ground beef, taco seasoning, a mixture of cheddar and mozzarella cheese, and black olives, and then finished with diced tomatoes, onions, lettuce, crushed tortilla chips, and sour cream.

We recently enjoyed a St. Paddy’s Day-inspired carved beef pizza in Brixx, called “John Wilson,” but who are we kidding? We always love eating at Brixx. And don’t forget to order their dessert, which will make your heart skip a beat, in more ways than one.
