Ironchef - I totally missed the California move - where was I that I missed that??? It might have been that time MJ decided I needed a long break or there would be death and destruction on DC LOL I did take a good break - I'm sure there was a lot I missed but I was better off! lol I hope you are enjoying your time in California. Where are you (work wise).

I really appreciate the time you put in here and the answers you give people. It is very well received. Thank you!!!!

I live and work in Los Angeles.

Santa Rosa is a beautiful place. IMO the wines that come out of the Sonoma Valley region are better than the wines that come out of the Napa region. Also, if memory serves me right, there's a deli in downtown Santa Rosa that makes great sandwiches. They slice the meats right in front of you and have toppings like marinated Roma tomatoes, Sicilian Olive Tapenade, marinated Mozzarella, etc. I forgot the name, but it's good. I do remember what I had though. Sopressata and Capricola with Roasted and Marinated Mushrooms, Roma Tomatoes, Arugula, and Provolone.

Also, in Petaluma, or rather on the way to Petaluma, there's this little place called Angelo's that makes the best beef jerky that I have ever tasted. For anyone that ever gets up in that area, please do yourself a favor and stop there to buy some. They make it fresh so it's much better when you eat it the same day as when you buy it, although you can get it vacuum sealed.

Ironchef - are you familiar with Viansa Winery in Sonoma Valley? It's the first big one you come to when you come around the corner - they have excellent wines. The grandson of Sebastiani and his wife own it - Vicky and Sam Hence the name, Viansa. Lovely place. A bit touristy but they still have excellent wines!

If I think of the duck being chicken (since I dont like duck) I'd say the second choice.

I've been there twice and love it. Yes it caters to tourists, but the grounds are beautiful and the wines are so good. I've gotten some great ideas for sandwiches just walking through the deli they have there.

Yeah, I've been there before. They have some pretty good items in their deli as well. One of the best features about Viansa is that you can taste almost every single flavor of their vinegars, oils, mustards, bbq sauces, jams, etc.

Interesting .... I just prefer savory to sweet, and interesting that most agree with me. Good Duck story ... were camping out in Lafayette, LA. I decided on a Christmas Duck. We were on the edge of a lake, and as I was cooking the duck on our little smoky joe weber, my husband started laughing and ran in to get a camera. I was mystified (because of the fat involved, I didn't want to leave the grill, and was looking towards the trailer). Jer ran out and snapped some photos, then told me to turn around. A huge bunch of ducks had gathered, and were watching me cook this duck. Jer said they were going to attack me at any minute. Of course they were just used to being fed by campers and were hoping for some bread crusts.

That reminds me of this comic strip called "Pearls Before Swine". There's a pig in the strip and he actually eats bacon and sausage links...
