Christopher Ranch’s California Garlic Blog

It’s no mystery that fresh garlic is one of the most popular, versatile ingredients ever. What remains relatively unknown, however, are the distinct flavor, quality and health differences associated with varying garlic varieties. Christopher Ranch, a family farm in Gilroy, Calif., grows a California heirloom garlic that is a leader in each category. All Garlic Is Not Created Equal. We’ll show you why.

Christopher Ranch’s Big Debut On Nesting Newbies

Nesting Newbies features Christopher RanchCan Christopher Ranch’s California heirloom garlic help make the transition to a new living situation a little smoother?

Perhaps, according to the new online series, Nesting Newbies (, wherein Chef Lea McIntosh shares her cooking, entertaining and decorating expertise with newlyweds, those who are newly on their own and those who require a little assistance when it comes to cooking, entertaining and decorating their nests.

The premise of the show is such: the newbies are culinary challenged, and McIntosh teaches them how to prepare a recipe – a task they’ve expressed an interest in learning – by breaking down basic techniques and simplifying the cooking process. Additionally, each “newbisode” highlights a fun way to decorate the table using pieces from Bloomingdale’s Stanford tabletop, along with chic and budget-friendly ideas.

In the Christopher Ranch segment, McIntosh shows the newbies how to chop garlic, use a garlic press and points out her preference for Christopher Ranch, as well as the ease of using our pre-peeled garlic. Click here to check out the show!

Now, we’re not sure if Christopher Ranch can solve all marriage and living conundrums, but one thing is certain – we can make life in the kitchen a little more enjoyable and your dishes a little tastier.

To express our gratitude – a big thank you, Nesting Newbies, for featuring us in the show; thank you, Burkart Video Productions, for producing the film; and thank you, Allure West Studios, for the terrific photographs!
