We live by the philosophy that every rule has an exception  and one such exception was at Rancho Pescadero where we fell head-over-heels for this juice. A little sweet, totally refreshing, and just enough ginger to get you going, it was the ideal way to start our mornings there.

{Salmon Rillettes} Smoked Salmon and Herbed Creme Fraiche Spread

Napa will always have a place in my heart. When I lived in San Francisco, I'd day trip there on the regular.
