Barbecue, Wasabi and ‘Culinary Diplomacy’ come together in Half Moon Bay

CDFA secretary Karen Ross visited what is believed to be California’s only commercial wasabi production facility today in Half Moon Bay. Pictured with the secretary is grower Jeff Roller (r) and a chef from the United Arab Emirates, Hattem Mattar, who is working on a documentary that will include visits to California, Texas and Louisiana. Mattar is a barbecue chef who makes international connections with an approach he calls “Culinary Diplomacy.” His trip is an initiative of the US and the UAE. California Grown helped to facilitate his travels in California.
