Mouthful: Citrus Fair time in Cloverdale

  • orange lemon

It's that time of year again, time to celebrate all things citrus at the Cloverdale Citrus Fair, which opens this Friday and continues through Monday, Feb. 17.

Highlights of the fair include a pygmy goat show, poultry judging, cooking demonstrations, an orange juice squeezing contest, lots of live music and so much more.

Cooking demonstrations feature Dave Legro of the Bumblebee fishing vessel on Saturday and John Trull of Vivo Vinegars on Sunday; in the spirit of full disclosure, I'll be following Trull with a presentation of easy-to-make vinaigrettes and other simple dressings.

General admission is $7 per day. Individuals aged 6 to 12 and over 62 pay $5. On Friday, seniors over 62 pay $1 and on Monday kids aged 6 to 12 are admitted free.

The fair takes place at the corner of Citrus Fair Dr. and South Washington St. in Cloverdale.

<strong>Laugh Your Way Through Valentine's Day:</strong> This Friday night, Sally Tomatoes cafe (1100 Valley House Dr., Rohnert Park) hosts an evening of dinner, comedy and dance. If you need to make last-minute plans, this could be for you.

Things get started at 7 p.m., with dinner. Menu highlights include pancetta-wrapped prawns; butter lettuce with goat cheese gratin, toasted hazelnuts and hazelnut vinaigrette; pork tenderloin with brandied cherry sauce; asparagus with Hollandaise and fresh raspberry chocolate mousse with dipped strawberries.

Tony Sparks will host stand up comedians RC Chandara and Juan Carlos.
