Let’s take about Farmstead in St. Helena. It’s connected to Long Meadow Ranch and the whole grounds has a very farm-like feel. And the food was awesome.

We began with some starters for the table.

First- a salmon rilette with a lemon-y cream. If this was readily accessible to us, I am pretty sure Ainsley would spread this whole mixture on every bagel he could find.

And an heirloom tomato salad. I am pretty sure the cheese was Buratta.

Ains decided he needed to try these meatballs with caramelized root vegetables.

And then he decided I needed to try the meatballs. And he was raving SO passionately about them, that I did. A tiny little bite. It was tasty. I’m still not into the texture of meat though after 18 or so years of being a vegetarian and now pescetarian.
