I packed my picnic basket before we left so we would have delicious snacks while we watched the bluegrass and gospel bands at Gypsy Hill Park.
What was in my basket? Strawberries, angelicots (rare white apricots), havarti, brie, cheddar, mini French baguettes, Orangina and four cans of Francis Ford Coppola's Sofia sparkling wine. Delicious.
On Sunday, we went to Staunton Grocery, one of my favorite restaurants ever. On Sundays, they have a prix fixe menu — three courses for $35 with a $12 wine pairing for each course. So good!
I had potato-leek soup with bacon and chives, grilled heritage pork with peach relish and black-eyed peas and the piece de resistance, chocolate soup with a hint of orange and mini cinnamon beignets. It was amazing. If you're ever in the Shenandoah Valley and have money burning a hole in your pocket, it's a must-stop.
