Great Taste Magazine 2011 Sept/Oct Issue features Chef Marty Wells and culinary news, tips, recommendations and recipes from Orange County restaurant chefs.

As we head into the crisp months of autumn we take a look at some of the best comfort foods our chefs have to offer. In this issue we take a close look at a comfort food classic: soups. We will look at some new variations being offered at local restaurants this autumn and we ask some of our favorite chefs for their soup picks. Our featured Chef this month is a comfort food expert, Chef Marty Wells from Bad to the Bone BBQ in San Juan Capistrano. He shares with us his food inspiration, how he maintains Bad to the Bone’s signature flavors and even gives us a look at his recipe for Ranch Style Beans.

In Sur Le Menu, we keep the comfort food theme going with a look at some of the best Macaroni and Cheese dishes in the area, everything from a classic cheddar cheese at A Restaurant in Newport Beach to a special Lobster mac and cheese variety at The Sky Room in Long beach. Chef Marty Wells even offers us another one of his excellent recipes for 3 cheese mac n’ cheese.

We take a look at the new savory trend in desserts and the ingenious things some Chefs have been doing with the savory twists on dessert classics. Great Taste will guide you through finding the best espresso machine to meet your needs because we know what a pain it can be to have to replace them and we will also help you save money by letting you in on the secret of LED. Finally we will sip into SoCal’s best wine fest with a tour through the wines at San Diego Bay Wine and Food Festival. All of this plus our usual departments in this issue of Great Taste Magazine.
