Time-Out!

Once again, it's time for FOODIES WEST to take some time out. As usual, we didn't want to leave you with nothing to do. So once again, we have an article featuring one of the world's foremost wine educators, Gary Spadafore, on Napa Valley Chardonnays.

In the meantime—

We're doing much-needed maintenance, installing new equipment, and enjoying some good ol' R & R. See you in September with a new department and the same quality articles on the West's hospitality professionals.
