  1. For screaming children, take off your dogs collar and leash and give them to the parents saying, My dog wanted you to have these as your kids are disturbing him in a loud voice. Worked for me.
  2. I'm a fan of his to be sure. Farallon is always a must-stop-in restaurant for me when I'm in the city. A lunch of head-on shrimp with spicy cocktail sauce and a cold vodka martini at the bar is about as good as life gets. For some reason though, Martini House doesn't do much for me. Holly and I reviewed the site and the menu and it looks awesome of course, but it just didn't click for me. I even watched the documentary of the opening of the restaruant a few years back. Then again I may have to give it a go if two people hastily recommended it. You are right though that it fits the description of what I'm looking for this trip. I just don't have the energy or focus this trip to do the whole French Laundry thing. My work is too stressful right now so I don't want to think that hard about my food. I want it to wash over me, along with good bottles of ripe fruit wines California is so famous for. ← Generals Daughter in Sonoma. call Preston tell him your coming and have him cook for you, with matching wine. Pm for phone number.
  3. So, next question is where are you going to eat?
  4. Frank family winery is a favorite of mine, also Wellington if you get to Sonoma.
  5. I'll be there for Thanksgiving also. Can't wait to see what you come up with.
  6. Go to Cabelas and buy one of these. http://www.cabelas.com/cabelas/en/template...0122&id=0014965
  7. Restaurant is on Santa Rosa Ave, Shop is on Hwy 12 on the way to Sebastopol. 2 different places.
  8. I think that this is the only thing I still want. http://www.lacajachina.com/
  9. Lined with tin, watch the heat as it will melt at high temp. 231.93 °C (449.47 °F)
  10. Exterior is anodized aluminum. Dishwasher soap will eat it up. Never put any aluminum or copper in a dishwasher.
  11. Hiking or driving? I made Rubens for 20 last weekend.
  12. These are very good also. http://www.harringtonham.com/
  13. You can get Gary Regans orange bitters here http://www.buffalotrace.com/home2.html go to giftshop, foods, mixers.
  14. Current favorite, Citadel gin from France, followed by Plymouth.

    All depends on where they can sell.
  17. When my parents came to visit years ago I served a boneless, marinated leg of lamb done on the BBQ. Mother was a cook it to death mint jelly kinda gal. They loved it and about the 3rd bite asked what it was. Never could get them to try goat though.
  18. Our reds are tasting very nice in the barrel and our white we just bottled was the only one we ever did lab tests on. 16.5% Sav blanc. Balance and acid were good (whatever that means)
  19. I love Lamb and this week my local market took pity on us and have shanks for $5.99 instead of $6.99 a lb. I need a new recipe for them. Any ideas?

    "The International Cooks' Catalogue" had some wonderful French Clockwork BBQ's. No longer seem to be available though.
  21. La Salette will sell it retail to you.
  22. A new twist on the story. http://www.sfgate.com/cgi-bin/article.cgi?...MNGEAF8V7T1.DTL
  23. I remember some wonderful zin's from Dantes vineyard in the 1970's, produced by Mastantuono Winery. Thanks for the memory. We picked the Syrah today but I got no pictures as we are running short handed right now.
