A Taster's Journey is a newsletter on food, wine and travel. After 15 years of studying, tasting, teaching, and selling wine, I created this newsletter to not only share my passion about wine, but of food and travel as well. Each month I hope to share wines that I am drinking, food that is in season, restaurants that I have enjoyed, and places I have traveled. Enjoy!"


Worth Seeking Out…

  • English Peas and Snap Peas are in season and are spectacular. I love snap peas, I peel off the tough string that surrounds the pea, then I saute in butter for 1 1/2 minutes. Season with salt and pepper and serve.
  • GUS Meyer Lemon Soda is a fabulous alternative to lemonade. It is not sweet like regular soda, and also has far less carbonation. The result is a very refreshing drink that is perfect for a hot summer day.
  • If there’s one toy in my kitchen that I love, it is an immersion blender. Mine is made by Braun, but I am not sure if that is important. These blenders are so easy to use, just stick it into the pot or glass. I like it for tomato sauce, a smoothee, and making a red pepper aioli. They are as easy to use as to clean.
