About Us

We love the combination of food and wine. Our goal is to provide you with well-tested recipes along with great ideas for wine pairings. Many of our main dish recipes will be followed by wine pairings to help you match the best food with its wine counterpart.

All of our recipes go through multiple testing sessions to make sure they are foolproof for you. However, if you have any questions just let us know. We are happy to help or troubleshoot with you.

Our current obsession is Olive Oils. We love everything about it and are studying the many nuances of different oils from different countries. We recently completed an Olive Oil tasting seminar and learned the proper way to taste olive oil, which is strikingly similar to tasting wine, because it includes the look, aroma, mouthfeel and taste.

Hi! I am Jayne

Enjoy the journey!

Having a life long love for all things food and wine has allowed me to have some amazing adventures. But, none as rewarding and life-changing, as when I took my hobby of food and wine to the next level and completed the Intensive Sommelier Training program at the International Culinary Center.

This class would lead me to simultaneously passing the Court of Master Sommeliers, Introductory and Certified exams.

I am based in the beautiful Bay Area of California, and the wine country is my second home. I am looking forward to sharing my wine knowledge and tasting adventures with all of our followers. I love the challenge of pairing wine with food.

Come along, the journey has just begun!

My favorite dishes: Steamed Clams with Garlic Butter and Wine and Pear and Walnut Cake

My favorite drink: Classic Aperol Spritz Cocktail

My favorite wine: Laird Family Estate Red Hen Ranch Chardonnay

Hi! I am Cyndy

Food is love and life!

I am a professionally trained chef who graduated from Le Cordon Bleu culinary school. I love to create recipes and have worked as a professional recipe tester and recipe writer for large food companies, newspapers, magazines, and in professional test kitchens. I also catered parties, helped edit a cookbook and taught cooking classes.

I grew up in beautiful Nebraska, so I love comfort food from my childhood, but I am based in sunny Los Angeles, California, and take advantage of all the produce we have to offer here.

My favorite things in life are cooking, traveling, drinking wine, and my family. I cook for my husband and two teenage boys everyday! Occasionally I even make treats for my sweet yellow lab.

I love to share recipes and travel stories. Welcome aboard our culinary adventure!

My favorite dishes: Cioppino Seafood Stew and Easy Salted Caramel Sauce

My favorite drink: Blueberry Vodka Cocktails

My favorite wine: Any Chardonnay from the Carneros region in Napa but my favorite is: 2019 Nickel & Nickel Truchard Vineyard Chardonnay, Carneros, Napa Valley
