We chose to feature Zazu Kitchen + Farm in episode four because John and Duskie are well known for taking raw ingredients, and turning them into something really special.

Spoiled to Perfection, the critically-acclaimed Sonoma-based web video series that unlocks the magic behind pickling, fermentation and the art of culinary alchemy, has launched much-anticipated episode four on the series’ website and YouTube channel.

In their latest excursion, the roving Spoiled to Perfection team led by the series’ host and well-known Sonoma winemaker Garrett Martin headed out to The Barlow in Sebastopol, California – a chic new shopping center and culinary arts depot -- to visit Zazu Kitchen + Farm: a highly-acclaimed restaurant and farm co-owned by celebrity chefs Duskie Estes and John Stewart.

Viewers discover the fascinating story behind Zazu Kitchen + Farm, and learn why John and Duskie – affectionately known as “The King and Queen of Pork” – believe whole-heartedly that if one is going to take a life, whether it be a pig or a persimmon, then every part of it must be used. From the snout to the hoof, not a single piece of the pig gets wasted.

Viewers also get to watch a gutsy Garrett Martin – celebrated local winemaker, yet first time member of a pork royal family-- learn how to identify pork cuts, smoke a pork belly and make bacon caramel popcorn. In a particularly poignant scene, he also learns from Duskie what it means to be a famous head chef, wife and mother.

“We chose to feature Zazu Kitchen + Farm in episode four because John and Duskie are well known for taking raw ingredients -- like a freshly butchered pig -- and turning them into something really special, whether it be a beautiful pork belly or aged prosciutto,” commented Spoiled to Perfection’s Producer and Director Steve Rustad. “They honor the animal and they honor the process of preservation. And if that weren’t enough, they make what is unquestionably the most perfectly cured bacon in Sonoma County!”

Production support for episode four was provided by Shoot Blue Productions based in Geyserville, CA, envisioned by Director of Photography Alan Campbell, and directed by Stephen Rustad of Rustad Marketing.

All four episodes of Spoiled to Perfection are available on the series’ website, and via its YouTube channel. Episodes five and six are in various stages of pre-production, and will air later in the year completing the show’s first season.

Spoiled to Perfection is sponsored by Bubbies, makers of the most popular naturally-fermented Kosher Dill Pickles and Sauerkraut: http://bubbies.com.
