The weather has suddenly shifted, it seems, to that magical few weeks of still being able to get away with wearing sandals, but paired with jeans and a light sweater. Am I right? Who else loves fall? Means it’s time to ponder taking some classes with yours truly! To keep up to date with class info, on Twitter search for the tag #aswclass, or visit the Eat.Drink. Tweet. page to sign up for the Eat.Drink.Tweet. e-newsletter. I also regularly give seminars for the Penticton & Wine...
