We're Getting Our Frick On

Michele and I are getting ready to head north for a huge catering event this weekend in Sonoma. If you've been following this blog for awhile, I'm sure you've read about this before. It’s called “Passport to Dry Creek Valley,” which is an annual event showing off the great wines and vineyards of the beautiful Dry Creek Valley.

We'll be doing the food for our frien
d Bill Frick, at the gorgeous Frick Winery for the 14th year in a row! Despite all the planning and prep, it's a ton of fun, and we look forward to it every spring. This photo is the winery's tasting room where all the food magic happens.

This is one of Sonoma's premiere wine/food events, and thou
sands of wine enthusiasts will be eating and sipping their way through the valley. By the way, if you have a chance, check out the Frick Winery website. Bill produces some of the most delicious wine in California.

Due to the limited time, there will probably not be any new videos until after the weekend. This will be the perfect time to review your favorite recipes and make sure you haven't missed any. Don't forget to use the search box in the bar at the top left of the window, to find the recipes you are interested in.

For whatever reason, I've never filmed any how-to's for the appetizer recipes that we've served up there over the years, except for these Calabrese Lollipops. It's an old video, but with backyard party season coming on fast, you may find this quick and easy bite a real nice addition to your repertoire. Enjoy!

you're really making me miss CA and the Sonoma Valley. it's been 20 years since i've lived there. that antipasto looks so good! i'll have to try that next weekend when my sis and her hubby comes to visit.

i don't think i'll have to wish you and Michelle to have a great time - because, you guys always do.
