For our first home-cooked dinner, DH asked that I 'blind' him. By this he meant pick out any wine in the cellar and pour it without revealing the labeled bottle. He was able to detect it was an '07 Pinot Nior from the Russian River Valley but could not detect the producer. I was impressed he could 'taste' the year, varietal and region but DH assured me that was not impressive. My humble man.

For dessert, we decided to walk to SCREAM, the new (vegan!) ice cream shop on Telegraph. Ice cream sandwich combos always inspire, from almond pink peppercorn sorbet on valrhona chocolate cookies to Blue Bottle coffee-hazelnut sorbet on ginger cookies...a dangerous new local spot!
