Our sparkling Founder & President Judy Jordan provided the employees with a fabulous Holiday lunch last Friday at the Dry Creek Kitchen in Healdsburg, specially prepared by Chef De Cuisine, Dustin Valette, which was an amazingly delicious and elegant dining experience.

We started with a remarkable “Slow Cooked White Leek Soup” with Toasted Brioche, Truffle Crème Fraiche & Verjus Caramel, paired with the 2010 J California Pinot Gris. 


Then a mouthwatering “Whole Roasted New York Strip Loin” with Candied Red Onion, Smoked Potato Puree & Black Garlic Emulsion, paired with the J Russian River Valley Pinot Noir.

In addition, Pastry Chef, Yulanda Santos, prepared a delectable dessert, Dark Valrhona Chocolate Fondant with Sea Salt Caramel Ice Cream, Peanut Brittle & Port Gastrique.
