Notes from Leslie -- April 2020
We’re thrilled to launch a new season of 100 Days, Drinks, Dishes & Destinations! With seven episodes spanning the globe from here to Hungary and Mexico to France, you can “travel” from the comfort of home. In light of the Covid-19 crisis, we wanted to share that these episodes were filmed in Fall 2019 and edited by February 2020. The world was a very different place mere months ago. We know it might look strange as I hug and interact with people naturally, but that was our reality then.
Our goal with this series is to journey along WITH me. Behind-the-scenes we head to a destination for four days, turn the cameras on and GO. What results is funny and fun, entertaining and educational. We hope you grab a glass – or two – and enjoy the journey of each episode. Our goal is to make you smile, make you hungry and thirsty, and let you know that we will once again be on the road together.
As I’ve been saying recently…Stay Safe, Stay Calm and SIP ON!
Leslie and the 100 Days Productions team
See, taste, hear, smell, touch, and feel the joy of culinary travel as Leslie awakens all senses in this episode. An eye-catching walk through the gardens of the famed eatery, French Laundry, is a journey of sensory discovery, while a visit to a Hungarian wine cellar is a tapestry of touch and taste. A plethora of aromas are on display as Leslie crafts her own perfume and her palate is put to the test while sampling wine without seeing it. She listens to the sounds of silence high above wine country while ballooning, then celebrates with the welcoming pop of a cork. Appreciate beautiful travel and culinary moments while celebrating the senses.
