Ad Hoc – Bringin’ it Home

If you have a birthday coming up or are already starting your holiday wish list, I highly recommend adding Ad Hoc at Home by Thomas Keller to your list. I’ve had some seriously great grub at Ad Hoc the past two years. It’s a style of cooking I’ve dubbed ‘haute comfort’ – meaning, comfort food […]

Having Your Cake and a Tea Towel, Too

My super-talented friend Christina Weber just launched her fabulous new line of tea towels and aprons at Studiopatró. I’ve been eagerly awaiting their debut and am so excited they’ve arrived in time for (forgive me) the holidays! I love that there’s a whole page dedicated to alternative ideas on how to employ these beautiful pieces […]

Royal Par/T

This past weekend, I was down in LA celebrating a slew of friends’ birthdays. One afternoon included venturing to a Culver City I’d not known before: design stores, art galleries, good eats and French Maid-clad waitresses. Yep, that’s right. Apparently, French Maid cafes are a trend in parts of Tokyo. So in the spirit of […]

In the Moment

So, it turns out, my first experience working with Saveur magazine is not as a food stylist, but as a photographer of sorts. I was working on an Italian cookbook a few months ago with the wonderful and true professional photographer on the project, Sara Remington. We decided the best way to shoot the fresh […]

Eat Real

This is the logo on my new favorite t-shirt. Wow, what an amazing day! Today in Oakland at the Eat Real Festival, I ran into old friends doin’ what they love to do–some were cooking and some, like moi, were eating. If you were there or following any of the vendor tweets, you know it […]

Samovar Tea: Luncheon Lounge

Pretty much since the first Samovar Tea Lounge opened in the Castro a few years back, I’ve been a devotee. I figured anyone as dedicated to introducing the art of tea from cultures around the globe as Jessie (the owner) is–in a cursed location in the midst of the dot-bomb era, no less–deserved my patronage. […]

SF Street Food Fest

If you’re in town Saturday, August 22, I’d recommend checking out the debut of SF Street Food Festival. Bring an empty stomach and walk or ride your bike to maximize calorie intake and minimize the aftermath. (Sadly, I’ll miss this so please report back! And please don’t feel too sorry for me, I’ll be slummin’ […]


I don’t have alot of occasion to head downtown, so it took me awhile to discover Farm:Table, a gem in the Tendernob. It’s a whisper of a place, like a best kept secret (which, I think it still is.) All the food is of the moment and changes daily. There’s no strict rule for the […]

Are You a Food TV Junkie?

If you’re a Top Chef and/or Food Network junkie and missed this article in last Sunday’s NY Times Magazine, you might want to check it out. This is not news to anyone who’s known me for more than five minutes, but I’m a huge Michael Pollan fan. I remember being at an event several years […]

Scrumptious Sculpture

Wow, I can’t believe a month has gone by since my last post (thanks to those who’ve been gently reminding me that I’m overdue). I’ve been busy working all over creation — and playing hard, too. I have so many discoveries to share and just not enough time to get it all out there. Get […]
