I’ve missed wine tasting at some of my favorite smaller wineries. I’m thankful that these same wineries are able to open up their outdoor areas to enjoy their wines.

WHAT HAVE YOU MISSED MOST DURING COVID?

Dining out, as it informs my cooking and bartending choices at home leading me to experiment with new, exotic ingredients and to create different items such as offal, salumis, and interesting cocktails.
