“If your project has real substance, ultimately the money will follow you… There is a German proverb: ‘Der Teufel scheisst immer auf den grössten Haufen’ [‘The Devil always sh–s on the biggest heap’]. So start heaping and have faith. Every time you make a film you should be prepared to descend into Hell and wrestle it from the claws of the Devil himself. Prepare yourself: there is never a day without a sucker punch. At the same time, be pragmatic and learn how to develop an understanding of when to abandon an idea. Follow your dreams no matter what, but reconsider if they can’t be realized in certain situations.” – German Filmmaker Werner Herzog


Breathtaking sunset (with no filter) at Francis Ford Coppola Winery, Taste of Sonoma

I hope you all had a lovely Labor Day weekend… this weekend I experienced Taste of Sonoma for the first time, part of Sonoma Wine Country Weekend, including Friday night at Francis Ford Coppola Winery with the stunning sunset above. Saturday was full of winning tastes from over 200 wineries and 70 restaurants and food outlets on the grounds of MacMurray Ranch. In the meantime, here’s almost 20 new articles on what’s happening in food and drink from SF to NY.
