Exploring coastal cuisine with Chef Giselle Wellman

What’s better than a delicious meal with one of those classic California views?

On August 1st, we enjoyed an unforgettable dinner party with our Choose The Table: San Diego winners and their guests. Local Chef Giselle Wellman warmly welcomed us into a beautiful space overlooking the San Diego Bay, before leaving our tastebuds hypnotized with an exciting menu that incorporated Dietz & Watson’s artisan meats and cheeses into every course. From the charcuterie on the back deck to the final bite of dessert, we savored every laugh, joke, and anecdote with friends old and new.
