Speaking of Napa - Another Cattle Baron's Dinner

In May, I was privileged to accompany my husband and four of his chef buddies to Aspen while they prepared a 5 course meal in a $100M home on Aspen Mountain (pre-crash value). That trip spawned three posts (A Dinner Fit For Barons, A Stowaway's View: Chapter 1, Chapter 2, and Eating Santa Fe - How To Dine At 8 Restaurants In One Day), and it was the dinner that was sold at the 2006 fundraiser. This weekend is the dinner that was sold at the 2007 event: a group dinner and weekend in Napa, it includes the previous chefs (Chamberlain, Garvin, Holben, Rathbun, Severson) plus Amador Mora of Trece.

And the girls get to go this time too.

So I'll be taking my little laptop along, we're staying with a couple of the chef's as guests at Rombauer Vineyards (who coincidentally is related to a renown cookbook author), hopefully they have wi-fi because I'd love to share it with you.

And of course this trip would not be possible without the services of Gma Gerry, who'll be staying with the Boy and Sister while we travel. Best Mother-In-Law In The World, (IJS).

I hope there is time for an Irish Coffee at http://www.thebuenavista.com/
before you head back to DFW. A Boston tradition when we are on the left coast.
