The adventure began with an 11:30 a.m. rendezvous at McCovey’s Restaurant where we were warmly welcomed by the owners, Rocky and Rick Dudum. Our number included Christine Livitski, owner of Walnut Creek’s We Olive, Heather Larsen, from De La Housaye & Associates, plus three of my girlfriends, Angela Bradley, and Meghan & Kathy Ponza.
I am owner and head chef at Walnut Creek’s Sunrise Bistro, but for the past three years I’ve been wearing another hat as a teacher at Concord’s Mt. Diablo High School. The school body is sub-divided into academies. Our particular career and technical education pathway is Sustainable Hospitality and Tourism.
