You would have loved the edible garden (www.copia.org) festival at Copia this weekend. COPIA is a non-profit discovery center celebrating wine, its relationship to food and its significance to our culture. We Laloolians were happy to be invited to scoop our spoon lickingly delicious ice cream in the beautiful summer gardens. The walkways had towering vines twisting with morning glories, carefully trained top-heavy tomatoes, and a mulberry tree keeping us shaded from the wine country sun!
Julia’s kitchen (the restaurant at Copia named for you – know – who) paired our Vanilla Snowflake with a country-style roasted fig tart paired (the crust was like a buttery croissant). And, served our Deep Chocolate topped with a selection of the fruity Spanish/California Calolea olive oils sprinkled with fleur de sel (our latest obsession). If you get a chance, visit Copia this fall for adventurous pairings of LaLoo’s with some exquisite eau de vies.
It’s good to be a foodie!
