Gamay and Summer – a Perfect Match

Gamay and Summer – a Perfect Match

Jarred Memories

I always assumed my pickles were tasty but it wasn’t until this country girl ventured up to the big city for a ‘Pickle Smackdown’ at The Drake that it was confirmed with a first place win beating out ‘the’ chef Michael Smith’s pickled goods.
