"Terra" Chips

"If there's poker, you have to have chips," says Terra co-owner Lissa Doumani about the crispy fried vegetable chips that her husband, Hiro Sone, made for the poker party. The name's a play on that of the couple's Napa Valley restaurant, Terra, as well as the Terra Chips that are available commercially nationwide.
