For the past three and half years, Joe Truskot has been responsible for the Living Section of The Salinas Californian which includes recipes, restaurant reviews, and much more. One of his fondest memories places him at his grandmother’s kitchen table, legs swinging underneath the chair, cracking two dozen eggs for her to make biscotti. As both of his parents worked, he was often responsible for making dinner. His cooking skills were increased dramatically when he joined the Peace Corps and was sent to Iran. If he wanted to enjoy the food from home, he would have to learn to make it from scratch. He has spent much of his life in his own kitchen, gathering up family recipes and exploring new foods. He spent 30 years as an arts administrator and is the author of the “Central Coast Rose Manual” – another passion of his.
