The Latest from Chef Justin: Partake by K-J

I haven’t posted for a while, but I have been crazy busy lately – last month we opened our new Tasting Lounge & Eatery in Healdsburg, Partake by K-J.

If you haven’t stopped by Partake by K-J yet, please come by and check us out.  It’s a new concept that brings together the best elements of a restaurant, wine bar and tasting room into one space.  Our Culinary team has created an amazing “small plates” menu that includes Bites (seasonal plates with recommended wine pairings) and Flights (wine & food pairings specifically selected by our chefs).

We love our new location at 241 Healdsburg Ave (right next door to the La Crema Tasting Room).  It’s really fun & inspiring to be cooking in Healdsburg, it’s truly become one of the top culinary destinations in the country.  Amazing produce, artisan products, wineries and restaurants are all tucked into this small town in the heart of wine country.

Below are a couple of pics of some of my favorite spring dishes featuring vegetables from our garden paired with some killer K-J wines.
