Field Trip

August 1, 2013

Here’s just a “tasting” of what’s been cooking with me this past week or so. (Kitchen closed.) We traveled to Santa Barbara for a very special wedding, which happily included seeing our daughter. After much frivolity and fun, Randy and I headed north to wine country…. Paso Robles. This lovely and approachable Central Coast Region is midway between San Fransisco and Los Angeles making it a great side trip from either direction. We spent two days sipping wines….Rhone varietals which included granache, syrahs, zinfandel, cabernet, malbec, mourvedre, and several other grapes. With over 200 family owned vineyards dotted throughout the rolling hills, beautiful tasting rooms and collectively outstanding wines, this is a destination we hope to visit for years to come.  Though dining was not the main event, we enjoyed some memorable meals in Paso. Enjoy a few photos of our trip and now……..I’m back in the kitchen!!
