Foodie thank you present-best foodie day ever

dvcucsc | Nov 7, 2007 07:26 PM

So I need some guidance as to how to splurge on a foodie pal, she referred me to a wonderful job and she went out on a limb for me and I really want to give her a great night or weekend on the town.

Food is her thing. She enjoys small plates and organic food. I am not as aware of options. I need your help.

Dinner would be nice, but I would love to pair it with something, like a cooking class, or some type of food event. I am pretty out of touch in this arena. But this should be fancy..maybe a tour of some kind....I just don't know.

I want to thank her soon, so at the latests, the end of this month or early December. WE are located in Oakland but would be eager to go outside of the area. I am open and willing to drive 3-4 hours. I would be happy to do an overnight thing if it means she gets the best food experience of her life.

-She has taken her friends to wine country many times and sampled some great food, but I don't just want to copy what she has done for others.

I was thinking to spend between $150-$350, but could go higher.

I was considering
having us take a class at -Cheese School of San Francisco -
or simply dinner at Chez Panisse

but that just doesn't seem good enough. So if you could have a great "foodie day" what would it be?

I am a creative person, but this is her area so I don't want to bust out black angus on her. Thank you for reading and I really do appreciate your help.
