French Laundry is an iconic restaurant in the Napa Valley region of California. A couple weeks ago I was there. Unfortunately you have to book months and months ahead for a reservation. It looked so inviting! And then I got to thinking – how could I create my own dining experience at home. Of course I would need a dream kitchen, you know a FULLY LOADED kitchen- double oven, giant island, Wolfe cook top… and then I got to thinking that for me, in all honesty, a fully loaded kitchen would HAVE to include a personal chef. So it is really too bad I did not get in to French Laundry because it would have been good research to observe great chefs at work. In the meantime the only thing fully loaded in my kitchen is my fridge.
