All in context, each in their region are great when paired with local cusine. this is something we need to get better at here in the states!

Nonsense! Why, the Napa Valley, which produces very expensive wine, pairs it with very expensive cuisine...


Actually, I do also find that they don't do this well here, and for some reason the restaurants in Napa Valley bug me, seemingly going out of the way to produce something that doesn't seem to work perfectly with the enormous Napa wines (full disclosure: I've never been to French Laundry). Chez Panisse, in Berkeley, however, is a nearby exception; it's really good at producing meals that work well with Napa wines.

I really like going to the Pacific Northwest, but oddly, nothing specific comes to mind when I try to think of Yakima Valley cuisine, nor Columbia Valley cuisine.

Best to you,
