Some-What Homemade with the Walnofer's #6

So, contrary to this blog's image, we aren't going out to eat everynight. In fact, I crave the simple meals most of the time. Call it California comfort food if you must.

After a long day of eating rich, culinary food, sometimes a nice salad is in order. Baked Figs stuffed with Cheddar Cheese and Honey, Sliced Ham and Pecorino over Mixed Greens. Also known as the refrigerator cleanout!

Recently I had to develop a restaurant concept for a class and I came up with a wine and burger bar concept titled VinoBurger. The inspiration led to this Cheeseburger with Mozzarella, Frisee, and Basil Mayo.

No wine and burger concept is complete without the wine.  Out from the cellar came this 2004 Beringer Single Vineyard Napa Valley Syrah that the Mrs. and I picked up at an industry event about a year ago. Syrah and grilled burgers are a match made in Napa!

Have you been to Taylors? First 'burger joint' that served wine, seriously this is Napa!
