At the end of each year, I compile about eight lists of my Favorites of the past year: the top wines, restaurants, foods, sake, spirits, and more. These summary posts help my readers more easily find my favorites of the past year, rather than skimming through hundreds of posts on their own. I also enjoy compiling these lists as it enables me to scan over my blog for the past year, to relive many pleasant memories of the food and drinks which most pleased me.
The lists do not necessarily address the "Best" of anything, as I have not partaken of everything in any category so cannot pass such judgments. But, every item on these lists gets my strongest recommendations and I have faith that they should strongly appeal to most of my readers. Kudos go to all of those who are listed in my Favorites, as they have well earned the accolades.
I hope you enjoy.
