You know youíre an inveterate foodie when you base your entire summer holiday decision on whether (and when) you manage to snag a reservation at the French Laundry.

Today, after nearly giving up, I did. And I have spent this evening building the rest of our trip around it. Flights booked, convertible rented, four hotels sorted out (San Francisco, Yountville, Healdsburg, San Francisco again), a reservation in Kellerís other Yountville gourmet heaven - Bouchon, where we consoled ourselves last year having failed to get into the French Laundry - achieved. Now that's how to book a holiday!

California here we come, again.
