Join me for highlights of the 12th Annual Pebble Beach Food and Wine and get a taste of the 2019 PBFW Lexus Grand Tasting!

When the wisteria is in full bloom and the hills are a brilliant green, and the rain seems to have finally taken a well-deserved break, there is a hubbub of delicious activity in a little corner of Northern California.

Pebble Beach is already known for its gorgeous coastline, 17-mile drive, and a golfer’s heaven, but for me, springtime in Pebble Beach is all about Pebble Beach Food and Wine. This year marks PBFW’s 12th year and my 5th of tasting and sipping from some of the culinary world’s greatest talents.

I was happy to be a guest of Balsamic Vinegar of Modena at the Saturday Lexus Grand Tasting. Imagine, more than 300 wines and 25 celebrity chefs serving up delicious, inventive bites to over 2000 guests — it’s always so much fun! I was especially pleased that my friends from Balsamic Vinegar of Modena were there, sharing tastes of their exquisite liquid gold. If you’ve ever had authentic Balsamic Vinegar of Modena (look for the seal on your bottle), then you know how this ingredient is so versatile, from adding flavor to simple salads to balancing sweet desserts!
