Last month I served our heirloom beans at the Montalvo Food and Wine Classic in Saratoga. If you live anywhere in the south bay, I suggest you try and go next year.
Dozens of wineries and restaurants are set up in a spectacular setting and you, the guest, get to roam and graze and have a completely swell time.
The weirdly unseasonal rain didn't slow things down a bit. For me, it was fun to visit some place so near that was completely foreign to me.
I served runner cannellini from one of the Puebla clay cazuelas we have, warmed up by little cans of sterno.
I had both sons in tow. Nico likes to help serve.
I was in my area the whole time or I would be able to tell you about all the other participants. I will say the vibe was great and I plan on coming back as a guest next year.
