A lunch was held for the Educated Palates group of UC Press donors at Villa Taverna, a private club in San Francisco.

University of California Press releases dozens of books on food and wine each year and donor support is vital. As part of this initiative, Educated Palates is a branch of like-minded donors who appreciate good food and wine. I much enjoyed a convivial lunch with members at Villa Taverna in San Francisco, with the highlight a refreshing glass of Burgundian-style Chardonnay from Patz & Hall.
