Late last year we caught up with acclaimed chef Cindy Pawlcyn to talk about the dining scene here in the valley and her latest venture, CP’s.
In the second part of our interview we got a bit more personal in an attempt to better understand the woman behind the success.
Q: What do you imagine yourself doing if you were not a chef/restaurateur?
Pawlcyn: I’d be a veterinarian or an organic farmer.
Q: What’s your favorite time of year in the Napa Valley (winter, spring, summer or fall) and why?
Pawlcyn: It’s tied. Fall is so beautiful with the excitement of harvest and the seasonal changes in the foods available. But I also love the light of spring and all the fresh, baby vegetables showing up.
Q: What are five things you always keep stocked in your personal pantry?
Pawlcyn: I always have sea salt, soy sauce, miso, black pepper, and of course, wine.
Thank you Chef!
