Holiday cheer has spread throughout the La Cantera Hill Country Resort. Whether you’re a guest staying on the property, or just popping in for the day, all are invited to take part in the legendary Hill Country Holidays from November 28 – January 1! Pack up your entire family and head out to La Cantera’s very own Winter Wonderland.
Many cheers for the charming Camp Verde in the Texas Hill Country. It’s an ideal time of year to visit their famed General Store — there’s no better place for shopping. Find an array of amazing products and fine food items gathered from artisans and producers around the world!
The coolest new product I’ve seen in ages is now available at Las Finezas Fine Gifts! Perfect for holiday entertaining and from the most incredible store. Their new line of MYdrap 100% folded cotton cocktail napkins, dinner napkins and placemats are recyclable and can be washed and re-used up to six times!
Place your order now, because the cover is blown on this amazingly unique confection found at Boerne Epicure. Kentucky Woods Bourbon Barrel Cake is a moist brown sugar and chocolate bourbon cake with maple, caramel and walnuts. It’s full bodied, with a blend of three 10-year old aged premium Kentucky bourbons. In a word — spectacular!
This particular meeting was a real treat for me. I first met Sommelier Rajat Parr at RN74 in San Francisco — one of my very favorite restaurants anywhere. His book, Secrets of the Sommeliers, is an excellent guide for anyone with an interest in wine, no matter your experience level or familiarity.
Step inside the beautiful Las Finezas boutique in Boerne, my go-to place for special gifts on birthdays, weddings…or the occasional treat to myself from time to time. Just in? Delightful handmade clutches, wallets, totes — even iPad covers by GiGi New York.
Boerne Wine Company is a fabulous wine boutique (and humidor!) with more fun finds and rare wines — wines by the taste, half glass or full — than you’ll be able to try anywhere else. Their state-of-the-art Enomatic Wine Dispenser allows you to taste some fancy names for cheap in comparison. There aren’t many places that you don’t have to commit to buying a pricey bottle in advance. Your taste test awaits!
Here’s to the perfect pairing Wine Dinner, featuring special guest Rajat Parr on Tuesday, October 22 at Francesca’s at Sunset. I have no doubt this will be an incredible evening! I am a huge fan of Sommelier Rajat Parr who runs the wine program for all of Chef Michael Mina’s restaurants. RN74 in San Francisco is one of my favorite spots…
Here in the charming town of Boerne you’ll find one of my very favorite places in all of Texas…Epicure Gourmet Market off Main. This place truly is gourmet at its best. Often times I find products here you simply can’t get anywhere else. Stephanie, the store manager, shared one of the latest edible additions to the store…home-shipped ice cream from Jeni’s Splendid Ice Cream!
Nestled along the Cibolo, steps away from the Main Street bridge, is the fabulous Creek Restaurant — one of the very best in all of the Texas Hill Country! Fall is finally here, and with the holiday season on the horizon, The Creek’s new menu is as varied and delectable as you can imagine.
