Featured Chef: Duskie Estes

Chef Duskie Estes of Food Network’s “Next Iron Chef” and “Guy’s Grocery Games” has been a North Bay favorite since opening the erstwhile Zazu Kitchen & Farm more than 20 years ago.Woman smiling next to lemon tree full of fruit

The Sebastopol restaurant closed in 2019 after major flood damage, but Duskie and husband John Stewart have kept going with catering and production of bacon and salumi from their Black Pig Meat Co.

Chef Duskie now serves as executive director at Farm to Pantry, a nonprofit that fights food waste and alleviates hunger in Sonoma County.

She competed in two seasons of “Next Iron Chef” and appears as a regular judge on “Guy’s Grocery Games” with Guy Fieri. Chef Duskie has appeared five times as a presenter at Fresh Starts Chef Events, most recently as a surprise guest with Chef Joanne Weir in November.
