The culinary tour from drive-in hamburger house in Turlock, California to the most successful food show in radio history is a tale well told by Narsai David. Born to Assyrian immigrants, Narsai's story began in Chicago where he joined his family in transporting bushels of summer tomatoes and peaches home for canning. The family later moved to the central California farming community of Turlock where Narsai was called into culinary service early.
Today, as Food and Wine Editor at San Francisco's KCBS radio station, Narsai broadcasts his secrets of gourmet cooking 36 times each week. Narsai was co-host of "Cook Off America," a television series highlighting regional cuisine from around the country. As "Macy's Culinary Expert," he hosts cooking demonstrations every Saturday morning at the flagship store on Union Square in San Francisco, and holds bi-monthly demonstrations at the Valley Fair store in San Jose. Narsai oversees the management and new-product development for his line of Specialty Food Products, and makes celebrity chef appearances at festivals throughout the world.
Wherever he goes, Narsai's objective remains the same: to share the simple pleasures of cooking, food and wine through education.
Narsai's Assyrian mother, Shulamith Sayad David, was born n the village of Ada near the city or Urmia in Northwest Iran. Her love of food was instilled in her three sons at a very early age. This wine honors her memory.
