TASTE editor Kate Wilson recently embarked on a food-nerd adventure to California. Her gastro-itinerary took her to San Francisco, Los Angeles and Napa Valley.

The full article, “Paleo, provisions and a pork chop”, is featured in the September issue of TASTE Magazine (on sale here or subscribe here).

These are a few of the behind-the-scenes photographs that didn’t make the magazine.

There is little more meditative for Woolworths TASTE’s online editor than pottering around the kitchen baking experimental sweet treats - except for maybe getting her hands dirty in the veggie garden. She believes that avocado completes most dishes, and always travels with a sharp kitchen knife.
