Typically served in Southern kitchens during the holidays, a Buttermilk Pie is always at the top of my list. Yes, it sounds a little odd but just imagine the most rich and luscious custard and add a flaky, buttery crust… You’ve got yourself a Buttermilk Pie. The delicious crust is filled with a buttermilk egg custard and topped with some nutmeg and lemon zest. Dee. Lish. Us. Rick’s Dessert Diner has been Voted Best of Sacramento for Dessert every year since 1986 and features over 285 desserts on their menu!

Local Roots Food Tour

When you hear the term; “Culinary Tourism”, do you automatically think about cooking classes or busloads of hungry individuals being taken from one winemaker to the next all in a days’ time?  Luckily, today we are talking about a much broader scope.  You don’t have to be wealthy or retired to enjoy culinary delights and highlights while traveling, or better yet, even in your own town.

What Folks are Saying!

Some great friends who recently moved here invited us out for a day of fun! Bethany our tour extraordinaire was beyond words!! Let\'s just say that our 6 of 8 in the group can be ( hopefully delightful) a hand full! Bethany was most informative and fun! While we had eaten at several of the restaraunts we visited, we knew little of the background or history. It was great to hear the passion from each of the Chefs about the food we have so many times enjoyed but obviously knew little of how it was created! This was also an enlightening experience as to where we live. Little did we know about our own surroundings that we took for granted! Big THANKS to Bethany for a wonderful day of food, information, fun, food, a good walk, food, and for opening our eyes to the greatness and sustainability around us, did I say food?!! We will continue to support the local eateries and giggle about the memories of the day! Thank you!! We will see you again soon!!
J-R S, Sacto
