American Regional Favorites
The farms, orchards and of course vineyards of California's wine country combine to turn the region into one of the most bountiful in the U.S. The kitchens of Napa, Sonoma, and the Russian River Valley highlight the quality of the ingredients at hand. Learn to make some of those dishes in your own kitchen, including: fig salad with sweet-spiced walnuts, Gorgonzola and Champagne vinaigrette; pork tenderloin with pan-roasted grapes; roasted Brussels sprouts with bacon; warm Dijon potatoes with fresh herbs and peas; and chardonnay-poached pears with crème anglaise. You will enjoy these with a selection of California wines.
