JOIN IN TO WELCOME THE AUTHOR, Sharon Stockwell and her new novel, "THE HILL BARONS' KITCHEN". Set in 1920s Montecito the book is a banquet of visuals describing the people, fashion, food, art, and architecture as it brings our local history alive.
It is the story of Paco who delivered from Diehls, considered in those days the finest gourmet market in the West. He supplied an array of eccentric Chefs in the kitchens of all Montecito's magnificent estates built by super wealthy Americans called “The Hill Barons”
The locations are the grand estates like Arcady, El Mirador, Il Brolino, Il Feuridis, Val Verde, Cima del Mundo and many more. Readers are entertained by the steady stream of notables, from Charles Lindbergh and Charlie Chaplin to sexy starlets of the silver screen who flooded the social scene with excitement and scandal.
The book tells tales of passionate Chefs as they compete in the Medallion d’Oro, crowning the greatest cuisinier in America. Readers experience the opening of the Biltmore and the notorious gambling ship that took the town by storm serving alcohol during prohibition. It is a fantasy for foodies and destined to become a local favorite.
