Preserve peak season strawberries by making this aromatic, crimson syrup. The basil adds a lovely herbal note and the slight bitterness of the peppercorns cuts through the sweetness of the syrup.
On my recent trip to Napa, I just had to re-visit the Inn at Occidental. This is one of my favorite Bed & Breakfast spots I think I’ve ever come across! The grounds are as pretty as you’d expect to find in wine country. This dish, like their entire menu, is fabulous!
