Morimoto Napa, The Thomas, and Bounty Hunter BBQ, all on one table


Let's be frank: girls dig guys who can cook. Even better: guys who want to cook with their other half.

Score a gagillion sexytime points by whisking your other half to Flavor! Napa Valley, a series of culinary demos, tours, and pairing meals from November 14-18.

Our pick: First Taste Napa on Wednesday, November 14 at the former home of Copia on First Street.

The informal evening affair is essentially a food porn tour of downtown Napa. Not only will you taste Morimoto Napa's Albacore tuna tacos, but you can find out the Iron Chef's secret to balancing his marinade when you visit his station.

Take notes before taking the action back to your hotel. Because the best thing about food porn is that she'll always agree to try those new moves.
