[Quoting a diner she met in Paris], “When you attain my age you will understand one of life’s great secrets: Luxury is best appreciated in small portions. When it becomes routine it loses its allure.” — Save Me the Plums: My Gourmet Memoir by Ruth Reichl

What a gift it has been to be home a bit, only traveling on research overnights nearby in my gorgeous state.
Now it’s time to hit the road again: first to NYC the week of June 10th for Brooklyn Bar Convent (look forward to seeing many of my drink industry friends!), then an exciting stretch in Singapore the second half of June for The World’s 50 Best Restaurant Awards, where I will meet with my fellow Chairpeople from around the globe, celebrate awards results with international restaurant staff and chefs — and, of course, dig deep in the city’s cocktail and dining scene.
