My fantasy trip to gourmetland, CA

rachb | Aug 2, 2007 11:44 AM

Hello All,

My absolutely fabulous mother is going to take me on a long-needed vacation to San Franciso in September. She's agreed that we can do all the gourmet things that I can find for us to do, so I need some advice.

We are going to stay in SF but will have a car to be able to take some trips outside the city. We've talked about Napa and the area surrounding that as a possibliity.

I'm not overly familiary with the area, but I'd like to find places to visit including:
• olive grove where they press fresh oil
• cheese makers, cheese shops
• date farm
• small town types of places that make wonderful, delicious local products
• fabulous restaurants
• interesting food markets
• farmer's markets

I plan to bring a cooler and a large suitcase so that I can bring all kinds of goodies home to Chicago with me.

Thank you in advance for your help identifiying some of these kinds of places!
