Please The Palate

Please The Palate Newsletter July 2018

Summer is officially here and with that comes the 7th anniversary of Please The Palate! Seven years have literally flown by and this past Spring was no exception. I spent most of the past three months on the road with trips that took me to Chile, Croatia and Italy, as well as trips to Napa, Paso Robles and Santa Barbara. I have so many stories to share! Some of the stories are below and there are more to come!

This past month I was also invited to judge my first wine competition, the Central Coast Wine Competition in Paso Robles. It was a really fun experience but afterwards it took a lot of brushing my teeth to get them back to white.

I am also excited to announce that I am working with the Gelato Festival America 2018 which returns this year and will be coming to eight cities around the country! I am looking forward to eating lots and lots of gelato! I will be managing the Gelato School so be sure to come say hi! I am excited to offer you a $5 discount on tickets with the promo code PLEASETHEPALATE so save the date and tell your friends!

Also, there is a Kids Jury that takes place at the Gelato Festival. So, if you have a child between 2 and 12 years of age who you think would like to be a judge, please send me an email.
