Two New Sweets From Auberge du Soleil
Rutherford’s luxe Auberge du Soleil resort offers a pampering experience that just got a little sweeter.
Its chefs have come up with two new confections sure to satisfy any posh sweet tooth.
First, “Gianduia,” dainty hazelnut-chocolate squares made with both dark and milk chocolates, as well as organic nuts. A box is $24.50.
Next, California pistachios star in hand-wrapped pieces of rich caramel made with organic butter and cream. Fifteen pieces of “Carmel a la Pistache” come in a decorative box for $19.50.
The treats are available for purchase at the resort or through its online store.
Presidio Social Club Exempt From California Foie Gras Ban
Yes, the new state law that took effect July 1 may have bumped foie gras off menus everywhere else in California, but not at Presidio Social Club in San Francisco.
You see, it’s on federal land, thus, making it exempt from the California ban.
