Marcus and I are in the home stretch of book three and feeling the heat. Recipe testing up to 5 recipes in one night gets to be exhausting, not to mention expensive. Too much of a good thing, can be too much as they say and none could be more true than wine pairing. Besides working my normal 9-5 gig, wine book events and catering holiday parties, book 3 has been significantly more challenging than other books. Perhaps because we want it to be the very best it can, perhaps it's the other stresses in my life adding onto everything else or maybe it's because we have set our personal bars very high. I'm excited about book 3, the Fall and Winter EAT & DRINK in the Northwest. Cheers!
