Whoa–Sign up for Uncorked in November at Land’s End Resort in Homer. I took this photo from my room at the resort last month. Land’s End is Alaska’s favorite beachfront resort!!  These food-and-wine events always are sensational. But check out Chef Matt Yore’s “French Spanish Fusion” menu for Fri., Nov. 5, 2010:
