Yountville and the French Laundry Garden

I had such a great weekend in Napa last weekend with so many adventures I almost forgot to share this one!  It would have been a shame too, since this was a true highlight for me.  

While I didn’t get to eat at the French Laundry, I did take a walk through its gorgeous vegetable garden.  Here is my visit in pictures.

Bachelors buttons hold a special place in my heart; used to grow them as a young girl.

New from Peko-Peko: Green Pea and Black Cod Bento


peko peko new bento

As you all know I’m huge fans of Peko-Peko.  I’ve enjoyed both of their earlier bento creations and can’t wait to try their most recent concoction–especially since it includes fava beans, a new favorite since my recent trip to Ad Hoc.  I’m thinking of serving these for family dinner this Friday night.

PS: I also love the design of the flyers and wrapping (see pics of “Early Spring Bento” here) who is behind this genius?
