Culinary Tour: Garden Fresh and Nutritious
Bill and I are in Montana at the spectacular Rock Creek Cattle Company, with views of the Flint Creek Mountains. In the middle of all this beauty, I'm still thinking about the organic garden back in Healdsburg and the lovely food that Chef Didier Ageorges creates with the fresh vegetables and fruit.
I'm thinking of the juicy, ripe, heirloom tomatoes that go into my favorite caprese salad. Fresh produce from the three acres of Chalk Hill Estate's garden are used by Chef for the culinary tours. Everything is so fresh and nutritious.
Part of why Bill and I are so excited about the launch party for the Foley Food & Wine Society on September 28th is that we get to share with the members the wonderful wine and food experiences they will have at the wineries, restaurants and resorts in the Foley Food & Wine Society group.
If you haven't experienced one of the Chalk Hill Estate culinary tours, you must add this to your bucket list! One of my favorite things to do is to go to the tasting room with a group of girlfriends and take a lovely glass of crisp sauvignon blanc out to tour the vineyards. We stop in to find out what Brad Agerter, the Chalk Hill gardener, is growing. Then, we arrive at the pavilion where Chef prepares a fabulous culinary experience paired with our wines selected by Erika, our estate sommelier.
It is a perfect way to celebrate a birthday, anniversary--or just celebrate life! LEARN MORE
