Time-Out!


FOODIES WEST is taking some time out. Sort of. But we didn't want to leave you with nothing to do. So we decided to take you to Wine School. Sort of. Check out our special feature article on one of the world's foremost wine educators and the handful of wines he suggests to pour (responsibly, of course) this summer.

In the meantime — 

We're doing much-needed maintenance, installing new equipment, and enjoying some good ol' R & R. See you in September with the same quality, fresh stories about great hospitality professionals, and new departments.
