Chambre and/or table d'hote in Austria Countryside worth the detour?

We had a wonderful meal at Gasthof Eberhard in St. Michael. We did not stay there but that was available. Definitely local. Chef/owner very friendly and great food. We were there in September 2011. Venison with sauce that used pumpkin oil. Last peaches from the garden in a wonderful dessert. Styrian food. Sturmi on this board has posted about it also.

destination food shopping from Santa Rosa to Cloverdale?

The Healdsburg farmer's market is really nice. The Bernier garlic and Dry Valley Peaches are really great, as are other things.

It shouldn't be this hard to participate. . .

I cannot do things that I could do this morning. It is not supposed to be work to communicate on this board. Why is it so hard? and don't make this a Q & A.

Serving Prosecco

I've had a Prosecco lees-aged that I bought one year from Kermit Lynch. I rather liked it but it disappeared. I don't think it sold well.

Venice restaurant picks?

We ate at Fiaschetteria Toscana a few years back and had wonderful service. We ate outside under a tent so do not know upstairs, downstairs or asking for a waiter, but simply wonderful service and fantastic food. The same waiter deftly handled an obnoxious couple at a large table and continued his service to everyone else without missing a beat.
