    Thanks for the info! I enjoyed this event last year and I'm glad to see they are expanding it. Is the AP event a first time thing ? $100 for it oh well, I will probably go anyways. There better be some really "excellent wines" there.

    $100 is a bargain compared to the $325 Napa Rose Cooking School!

    The new AP newsletter does talk about using the Lucky Fortune Cookery as a place to try new foods (for a price), of course they can't use the Farmer's Market this year.
