CPK Partnership With Colby Red


A few days ago, California Pizza Kitchen announced their partnership with Colby Red, a red wine whose proceeds support charities that promote heart health.  Colby Red is specifically a California cuvee of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Petite Sirah, Shiraz, & Zinfandel.  This sounds like a wonderful blend and definitely good for the heart!


This wine was inspired by Colby Groom who endured two back to back heart surgeries as a child.  He enlisted his father, a winemaker, to create a wine that raises money to help others. To hear more about this story, check out this YouTube video.  After watching this video I was moved:


CPK will serve Colby Red on their menu (by the glass and bottle) at all their locations through the end of April. Also CPK has also pledged to donate up to $10,000 to charities focused on heart health this year (very nice!).

In other news, CPK's Valentine's Day menu will be available for four days from 2/14 through 2/17. This menu for two includes an appetizer, two entrees and a dessert for $30.  It would sound nice to accompany that Valentine's Day meal (or any meal) with a glass of Colby Red!

Kabuto

Eating at  Kabuto  was a wonderful dining and learning experience for my fiance and I.  If you are truly a sushi / Japanese food  enthusiast and am willing to pay $$$ for what you get, you must come to Kabuto! We each ordered some Ă  la carte items and the Nigiri Omakase , which includes an appetizer, ten pieces of sushi nigiri, hand roll, and dessert.  Our chef was the general manager, he's such a knowledgeable man!  He told us about the distinctive features of each fish, what his job entails, and funny stories.  I'm so glad he was our chef! Since we sat at the bar, we were up close to see how our sushi chef worked.  He wasn't in a rush and we got to see the artistic side of how sushi is made. This made me appreciate my experience at Kabuto much more:                    Last note : Finding this place was also a learning experience for us, you may get aggravated looking for it in the strip mall... Kabuto is th

Stockholm Trip '17

Over a month ago, my husband and I embarked on our first trip to Europe!!! We were there for a couple weeks and spent our time exploring the capital cities of Norway, Denmark, and Sweden.  The two things I found most captivating was the art, especially the architecture, and the food!  Our trip started in Oslo, Norway and Copenhagen, Denmark (check out the links at the end of the post for more details) and ended our Euro trip in Stockholm, Sweden: AB CafĂ© Never in my whole life did I eat pastries and drink coffee every morning until I arrived in Europe! A lot of pastries I had were hearty which left me wanting to have at least one daily.  In the neighborhood near where we were staying at was  AB CafĂ© .  This is a small, cozy cafe where you can have a small bite to eat and drink before you start your day.  Pictured below is their Key Lime Sandwich, latte, and a bullar (sweet bun).  It was a nice fika !
