A former Charger opens a cafe, why bison is in vogue, and a certified cheese specialist talks fromage

By Archana Ram

In this week’s Happy Half Hour, Erin Chambers Smith and Troy Johnson along with producer Archana Ram dive deep into the city’s dining and drinking news, like the new King’s Craft Coffee Co. from former Charger offensive lineman Cory Withrow and RakiRaki Ramen’s latest Little Italy location.

We also discuss Modern Farmer’s new bison-themed cover as well as the rise of agrihoods. Have you heard of meetsinglefarmers.com? We chat about that, too.

Plus: Certified cheese specialist and owner of Smallgoods Cheese & Provisions Jenny Eastwood stops by to share all her delicious knowledge about a gourmet string cheese made in Compton, what it was like to intern in a cheese cave, and upcoming classes at The Cheese Store of San Diego.

Then stay tuned for Small Bites, where we chime in on our favorite restaurants around town, including Saffron, The Rose, True Food Kitchen, and more.
