Last week, I was wrote about the last Farm to Fork event that I attended last year. Last week, I attend the “Farm to Fork” this year. I had a blast! Paso Robles Chamber of Commerce held the event at The Groves on 41, there was great food, and wonderful speakers that shared their products, visions, and time with all of us.
I got lost going out there, since I believed it was in Paso, I has Siri take me to the address I was given. She told me “Your destination is on the left.” No Siri, my destination is not on the left. I went around the area one more time. Then I saw a lady that looked a little lost too. She was in a Minivan, and as she pulled over to my car. I rolled down my window and asked her “Are you looking for “The Groves”, she said “Yes, it is suppose to be around here.” I asked her “Who gave you directions?” She told me Goggle gave her the directions. After that comment, I couldn’t really be mad at Siri. The problem was I was asking for the wrong town.
Alright, I finally made it there, but I was already 38 minutes late. I walked in meekly, and sat at the back table. You know, where most trouble makers sit. I had a great table, full of energetic and lively people. My table consisted of Eric Snider from Econcept Marketing Solutions. Eric was fun, and so welcoming. Angel York, she was there representing Home and Ranch Sothebys. Roberto Ballo was there representing Goal Productions, and Tawnya Lettau the owner of Chateau Lettau. What a fun and diverse group. It was hard to go around and introduce myself because I was having so much fun.
Our tables were decked out with a table cloth, and a center piece of veggies from Tally Farms. Our first course was an exquisite wine from J. Dusi, and a yummy bite to eat from Berry Hill Bistro. Our second course consisted of our wine from J. Lohr Vineyards and Wines. A nice full bodied wine that went down so sweetly. We had shrimp that had a cilantro sauce that was unforgettable. It was delectable. Speaking of seduction...LXV was our next wine. The wine was absolutely divine, and it left us all wanting more! The blends of the wines are inspired by the Karma Sutra. What? Yep! It is true! Our delicious course was made by JR Meats and Pier 46 Seafood.
Our last course was brought to us by Bless Your Heart Bakery. There was a port by Paso Port. There were other sponsers like Therabee Honey, with all those various yummy honeys. The finishing cocktail was given to us by Re-Find. I highly recommend their vodka! The smoothest, and most luxurious vodka I have ever had. YUM!
