After approximately four months of work, Dad's Kitchen has expanded by adding a tap room to its popular Land Park Restaurant.
The venue seats about a dozen people around the bar, with another 15 or so spots on a standing bar along the wall. The bar also features a couple large TVs so patrons can watch sports while enjoying their beer of choice.
For more information about their expansion, read a December 2012 article in Sac Press.
Dad's Kitchen is located at 2968 Freeport Blvd, next to Freeport Bakery.
Chocolatier Ginger Elizabeth Hahn teams with coffee roasters for special dessert day - On a recent weekday morning, superstar chocolatier Ginger Elizabeth Hahn and her husband, Tom, stood at a large table at Old Soul Coffee in midtown to do some research for an upcoming dessert creation. They stood, they stooped, they sniffed, they stirred. They slurped and yes, much like professional wine tasters, they spit discreetly into a cup.

And if you want to attain a deeper understanding of Sacramento's history, while sampling tasty treats and touring restaurants that make up the city's booming food scene, a local food touring company may be a step in that direction. Local Roots Food Tours, which just celebrated its two-year anniversary, prides itself in offering "gastronomic and historical walking adventures" through some of the city's most historic neighborhoods. It's recently added a tour highlighting "The Kay," Sacramento's original main street, and is the only Sacramento tour company that caters to both foodies and historians.
