Pear salad

The Pear Salad special at Buckley’s Great Steaks featured crushed pistachios, goat cheese and beets.

In another life, in another town, I once sampled fine wines with California vintner Peter Mondavi, who was visiting a restaurant that carried selections by Charles Krug, the Napa Valley vineyard founded in 1861 that was acquired by the Mondavi family in 1943.

All I remember about that tasting was how the wine I liked the most happened to be the most expensive.
