With a short week and the Thanksgiving holiday rapidly approaching, our posting schedule is going to be a bit off over the next few days.
Regardless, here are a couple news bits worth sharing before many of us check-out for a few days.
Annual Festival of Lights Friday in Yountville
The town of Yountville will host the 21st Annual ‘Festival of Lights’ starting this Friday (11/27). The free event starts at 2pm and as always local wineries and restaurants will line the streets to offer food and wine samples (tickets are $1 each).
Having personally attended the past few years, there will be plenty of activities for children, including the opportunity to have their photo taken with Old Saint Nick. Once the sun sets the ‘town lighting’ will take place and thousands of white lights will illuminate the sky (this was our little one’s favorite part last year). The festival continues through the month of December with various special events.
Thomas Keller’s Bouchon Bakery rolls out Thanksgiving treats
As usual, the folks at Bouchon Bakery have come up with some beautiful looking and tasty treats for the Holidays.
In celebration of Thanksgiving, you can now enjoy the Huckleberry Crumble Pie ($30, serves 6-8), which is described as a “…reinvention of the classic fruit pie” and includes fresh Huckleberry topped with homemade streusel. The bakery is also featuring a Pumpkin Pie ($30, serves 6-8) that features house made pumpkin custard topped with mascarpone cream and pumpkin streusel, a Bourbon Pecan Pie ($30, serves 6-8) that is topped with chocolate ganache and a Cranberry Currant Loaf ($6 each), which is the bakery’s house made bread fused with fresh cranberries and currants.
The pies are only available through Thanksgiving, while the Cranberry Currant Loaf will be around for a bit longer.
