Crab Mornay

2019-11-07T22:15:29-07:00

This is an easy-to-make dip that will steal the show. The rich and creamy texture of the Bechamel Sauce is a decadent base for the delicate crab meat. The spice of the cayenne mixed with the sweetness of the sherry adds the perfect balance.

Brillat Savarin is my absolute favorite cheese. I tell people that this is what I want to taste before I take my last breath. It’s that good!

Progeny Trinity Blanc

2019-08-01T18:29:29-07:00

This is a fabulous white wine from one of my fellow vintners on Mount Veeder, Progeny Winery. I love this wine so much that I have a personal stash hidden away.

Karen’s Jambalaya

2019-07-21T19:38:05-07:00

This quintessential N’awlins dish is one of my most requested recipes. It is a great choice for a one-pot hearty dish when hosting large gatherings.
