After a hike at Point Reyes with a group today, we enjoyed dinner in the garden at the Station House Cafe in Point Reyes. After a great meal, I tried the Station House Cafe's Chocolate Pot de Creme with a sprinkling of grey sea salt on top -- with a bottle of pumpkin cider. This pairing is a preview of chocolate and pumpkin theme week to come later this month, closer to Halloween.
