After a week in Gilroy in the pursuit of garlic, then a little time back at the Diner indulging in Tomato Season, I had the opportunity to spend a week in Napa. You might think a visit to Napa would be all about the wine, especially with “crush” going onbut for me it was all about the food.
I wanted to visit the local places so with a little help I was steered toward a few places: the Browns Valley Family Stand burger available only in the Livestock area of the Napa Town & Country Fair, the shrimp quesadilla from Taqueria Maria, and cupcakes from Sift – the 2011 Food Network Cupcake Wars Winner.
Wow, what an introduction to Napa and not a drop of vino in sight! Maybe I’ll be able to visit again next year and add to the list of Napa Treats. I already put Dim Sum Trailer and Soscol Café on my list, who knows what other opportunities will arise by then.
