A Culinary Event with the California Wine Masters

Victoria with Sophie Gayot and Curtis Stone

 On the  ‘backlot’ of Warner Bros. Studio, we enjoyed an evening of tasty treats from all over the country, paired with ‘Napa-centric’ wines. With multiple dishes prepared by a long list of acclaimed chefs, it was hard to pick a favorite. However, the Bouchon pate de campagne with watercress, cornichons, and radishes was among my top choices. What made the night even more delicious is that it was for a good cause! All of the proceeds from the California Wine Master’s tasting extraordinaire benefit the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. Now, who wouldn’t toast to that?!

The 2nd Annual Pebble Beach Food and Wine Festival

At the Lexus chef’s table, we feasted on truffle and foie gras stuffed squab, truffle risotto and crispy prawns. And the creamy blueberry cheesecake with a crunchy hazelnut crust was the perfect ending. Chef Michel Richard truly is one of my favorites!
