Food & wine news, upcoming events around Sonoma


Just walk to the next course

Go on a culinary adventure during the fourth annual Healdsburg Strolling Dine Around, a progressive dinner held at 20 restaurants on four evenings in December.

For the four-course meal, diners build their own itinerary by choosing where to eat each of the four courses (appetizer, first course, entree and dessert).

"It's a golden opportunity for people to enjoy Healdsburg while experiencing cuisine from around the world," said event coordinator Lori Moore, who expects 400 diners to sign up this year.

Among the participating restaurants are several newcomers to the Healdsburg scene, including Cafe Lucia, Taverna Sofia and Bravas Bar de Tapas.

The Strolling Dine Around will be held on Dec. 5 and 6, 12 and 13. There are three start times: 5:30, 6:15 and 7 p.m. The dining experience is expected to last three hours, with each course lasting 45 minutes.

Cost is $89 a person, including tax and tip, with a portion of the proceeds benefitting the Healdsburg Shared Ministries Food Pantry and the North Coast Consortium Program.

Wine will be available for purchase at participating restaurants, and guests may bring their own bottle, but a corkage fee may apply.
