Last year I was introduced to a new line of food products made from grape pomace by the ingenious team from Kendall-Jackson Winery and WholeVine Products. The San Francisco Professional Food Society (SFPFS) hosted an event where several professional chefs and bakers shared their experiences working with this new flour and we got to sample their creations. At the end of the event I was given a sample of the Merlot Grapeseed Flour to play with and I was anxious to try it out. In addition, when they discovered my fascination with their products, the WholeVine team sent me more samples of both the flours and oil so that I could use them in recipe development.
Autumn has finally arrived in the San Francisco Bay Area! After the past few weeks of screaming hot weather with temperatures hovering around 95°F, we now have cool breezes and even the possibility of a few showers. Our plants will be relieved and I may be able to pull my sweaters out of storage. Hallelujah!
Have you ever had a Boston Cream Pie? This New England classic is a combination of yellow sponge cake layers with vanilla custard in between and then covered with a chocolate glaze. It is the best of two favorite desserts, cake and pudding. Around since the mid-1800’s, this dessert is literally a piece of American history. The title mostly likely came about because pie tins were more common then than cake pans in the early days when this dessert was being made.
It is finally getting to my favorite season in the Bay Area – Fall. Warm days with incredibly bright blue skies, no fog lingering on the coast means light breezes, and the heat of the Central Valley works its way to the coast warming the entire Bay Area to perfect temperatures. If you’ve ever wanted to visit San Francisco, this is the time to come!
