Oh happy, happy Friday! I’m still recovering from my ridiculously fast visit with Kortni, where I we paraded up and down the Napa Valley and visited many wineries and restaurants in just one day. Since it’s still so fresh in my mind, today’s Friday Five is very Napa Valley-heavy.
The most gorgeous lemon tree at Inglenook in Rutherford.
1.Every Napa Valley native has their list of must-dos and must-visits for tourists. I’m particularly fond of this list, as it mentions some personal favorites and new-to-me locations!
2. Because I’ve still yet to try my hand making salmon, but this recipe makes it sound easy enough.
3. I’ve been quite lucky to meet Napa Valley artist Penelope and view her work firsthand. This interview on her style, technique (painting the flavors of the wine as she’s tasting it) and inspiration is absolutely wonderful.
4. A fascinating article on the new normal in French cuisine in Paris. I’ll always miss the food from my trip to Paris..
5. I love every single bar on this list and I regularly recommend them to friends and tourists. Which is your favorite downtown Napa bar?
