About Me

Drink deep, or taste not!

You might think that since I’m a chef, I would be writing another recipe blog. The things is, after a 60-hour week in the kitchen, the chances of me cooking at home are slim. I want someone else to cook, and I want it to be good. These are the places I go. Enjoy!

    There was a gentleman at my bar in downtown Dallas that suggested I check this blog out after we talked about wines for a while. His name was Ross if I’m not mistaken and was very knowledgeable about wines. I have read some excerpts from this website and I like the topics, and it seems intelligent and well put together. I look forward to more articles and am pleased I was informed of this site.

    Hey there! Cool site, I found you from Chowhound. My BFF and I are heading up to Calistoga Ranch on Monday and were looking for a couple of extra “fill-in” places to eat. Based on your rec, we’re trying Farmdale. We are longtime Schramsberg nuts and plan our trips around the bubbly. Also, I am a French Laundry virgin, going Wednesday and SO excited.

  • Hello Thirstyreader.com,

    I stumbled upon your site while researching and writing a review for the East Bay Chinese restaurant, China Village on Solano avenue in Albany. I enjoyed your review and included a mention of it in my review, with a link back here of course.

    When time permits, I’ll return and take a look around. I hope this finds you well.

    Oh, and if you’re interested in movie reviews, maybe you’d be interested in dropping by my blog listed below.

    cheers->

    I’m stunned by how robust the content offering is on this site — I’ve repeatedly referred friends visiting the Napa area to check out the blog. None have been disappointed, and all are amazed by the Wino’s nearly psychotic devotion to all things food and wine.

  • I write and publish the Opinionated About Dining Survey. http://www.opinionatedaboutdining.com. I would like to use your photo of the pizza at Tra Vigne for a slideshow I am putting together for the Top 100 artisanal cheap eats places in the U.S. You will get credit and a link to your blog on the frame, and a second credit and link at the end of the slideshow. If this is a problem, please let me know and I will use a different photo. Thanks.
