He buys the best ingredi- ents available and uses differ- ent vendors than anyone else in the Lake Almanor Basin. "They are more costly but add tremendous value to the dining experience," he added. In the area of food prepara- tion he said Gamboni's is known for not over-seasoning food but rather for letting the flavor of the product come through. "Because flavor is so im- portant, we won't smother our steaks with sauces. In- stead you will find a dab of Gorgonzola butter on our rib- eye or grape tomato and bal- samic salsa on the flat iron steaks," he said. "Quality takes time." "The coordination of bring- ing fresher foods like fish and other products to Lake A1- manor is very time-consum- ing," he said. He said it is precisely that attention to detail that shouts what Gamboni's is all about. "I have a passion for sushi, and many of the dishes I pre- pare have an Asian flair. I al- so love a great steak," he said. Guests will find Gamboni's Peninsula Grill menu offers rack of lamb, pasta, fresh fish and other house specialties. For those out-of-area guests and part-time residents, Gamboni said, "Our guests can always count on having their dinner prepared on their way into town." Beyond the economy Gamboni counts among his recession strategies obtain- ing a full liquor license, which he says provides an enhanced service opportuni- ty for his clientele. "Not only can you get a great glass of wine or a beer, Need help NG 00EATTY you can also get a martini or a great Scotch," he said. In addition to having the drink of their choice, Gam- boni's Peninsula Grill guests may order food at the bar. His latest strategies in- clude ensuring there are deli- cious meal choices, at vary- ing prices, to serve the broad- er community. A new endeavor, he now serves lunch for the summer season and has found himself working from 9 a.m. to mid- night these days. "I'm very hands on -- I work my business. I'm the business manager, purchas- ing agent and chef." He also fills in as butcher. "By buying in whole form, I can save money and offer my clients a fresher product." Despite longer hours, Gam- boni is more than satisfied with his decisions. "These are strategies that have allowed me to maintain the same high quality," he said. Those strategies, along with Gamboni's service stan- dards and willingness to work hard for his clientele, have built a mutually re- spectful relationship. "There are people who ap- preciate being able to go out and eat a nice dinner during the winter season. They have really done their part to make sure I stay open -- I re- ally have to thank the locals for their support," he said. Journey in culinary arts While there are those who might be under tl% impres- sion that John Gamboni is a relative newcomer to the Lake Almanor .Basin, his his- tory shows otherwise. While Gamboni's Peninsu- la Grill celebrated its fifth anniversary May 25, John himself celebrated many more years in the Lake A1- manor Basin. "My dad found the Last Chance Campground when I was about five years of age and we vacationed here every year after that," he said. He said his father eventual- ly moved the family to the area from Southern Califor- nia and John started attend- ing Chester High School as a freshman in 1981. Growing up he worked for Kendig Catering at the age of 15. "It was my first food job and I helped to cater meals for Ducks Unlimited and for Shriner's dinners," he said. He said he also worked a summer job at Renaldi's for "gas money" and at the Old Crossroads and the Lake A1- manor Country Club club- house. His first career step was as kitchen manager for the OyVey Caf6 in Chico. "Later I moved to Lake Tahoe and became seriously interested in the culinary arts," Gamboni said. During that time he first worked as a broiler cook and was later promoted to sous chef for the T.S. Restaurant Chain. Chef John Gamboni has taken continuing education classes at Greystone in St. Helena, in the Napa Valley.

Current wildfire mitigation projects include our Elderly and Disabled Defensible Space Assistance program and hazardous fuel reduction projects in the Indian Valley, Long Valley and C Road com- munities. Council members remind residents that Plumas County is coming into a key part of fire season, lightning season. Remember 2008? It is not Jn- common for the Plumas County to experience five to 25 fires in one day, and days when more than 50 fires have started. On many occasions sup- pression resources have been insufficient to attack all the fires and consequently a num- ber of them have gotten very large, burning.a significant number of acres. PC FSC reminds residents that now is a ood time to re- view defensible space; make sure roads, driveways and hous- es are well signed (with reflec- torized lettering and numbers); know evacuation routes and have a plan with family on how and where to evacuate to or where to meet up. The Plumas County Fire Safe Council invites residents with an interest in preventing and mitigating impacts from wildland fires, to their homes or communities, to become members. The council's mission is "To reduce the loss of natural and manmade resources caused by wildfire through Firewise Community pro- grams and pre-fire activities."
