It is no secret Napa Valley is home to a staggering number of world class restaurants and specialty food shops. Several of them are on heavy rotation in Ray’s lunch schedule. Over the years we have asked the chefs at these establishments if they would share some of their favorite dishes with us so that we may match them with our wines and offer them to you. Enjoy!
