In this episode, authentic Portuguese flavors take us to our first spot: Uma Casa Restaurant in San Francisco. And for the seasonal Indian-cuisine-with-a-twist, we stay in San Francisco for a trip to Ritu Indian Soul Food. Finally, it’s all about cheesy macaroni, in all its glorious variations, at Homeroom Mac + Cheese in Oakland.

My name is Leslie Sbrocco and I’m the host of Check, Please! Bay Area. Each week, I will be sharing my tasting notes about the wine, beer, and spirits the guests and I drank on set during the taping of the show. I will also share some wine, beer and spirits tips with each episode. This week I discuss: wines in a can.
