No, really…it’s coming! Hot off the press November 9, 2019

We hope you all can make it out to the cellar for our Harvest Food and Wine Celebration on November 9th. We’ll be serving up favorite recipes from my new book paired with Frank’s new wines… and a few of those books just may have to make their way home with you, signed of course!

Frank and I look forward to celebrating with you.

The Kitchen in the Cellar: A Recipe for Reinvention is a cookbook-memoir filled with over 100 seasonally inspired, wine-friendly recipes for everyday cooking. 

As co-owner and chef of Narrow Gate Vineyards, located in the El Dorado appellation of the Sierra Foothills of Northern California, Teena Hildebrand shares the creative recipes and wine pairings she’s made and served over a 15-year span for thousands of her winery guests, friends, and family. Woven throughout is the story of the Hildebrands’ adventurous journey of pursuing their implausible dream to plant a vineyard and build a winery, and the miracles that made the dream a reality. Their recipe for reinvention unfolds through the inspiring story of their leap of faith from fashion to wine and from city life to country life, while maneuvering through a constant maze of seemingly impossible-to-overcome obstacles. Hildebrand weaves in her personal culinary journey, which began at age nine and was first inspired by Graham Kerr, The Galloping Gourmet. Forty-five years later she met him in his kitchen, and here she shares how Kerr’s influence in her life today goes far beyond food and wine.

Hers is a story of food, faith, and never giving up on your dreams.
