Napa Valley has a long history, most of which had nothing to do with wine oddly enough. But that’s how people around the world have come to know this small valley in Northern California, all thanks to the production of grapes and the masters who turn those tart berries into luscious wine. With good wine, comes good food and there is no shortage of that in the Valley either; from Michelin star dining at the French Laundry in Yountville to the more trendy, Las Vegas style setting of Morimoto-Napa. Even though my time there was short, I had the opportunity to try some of the best the region has to offer, including these tasty and impossibly imaginative treasures.
I was invited to participate in a two-day preview of Hilton HHonor’s Seven Tickets to Your Paradise Sweepstakes. They were kind enough to arrange the trip for me so that I can share these remarkable experiences with you all.
Without further delay, here are some of the amazing culinary highlights from my Napa weekend.
