Keeping Lemons Fresh and Other Tasty Tidbits

Some of my favorite bits and pieces from the past several weeks. Enjoy!
  • Never wonder “what to eat” in San Francisco. If this crib sheet of the city’s tastiest bites doesn’t inspire you to immediately set off on a food adventure, I don’t know what will. We’re working our way down the the “SFoodie 92” list from SF Weekly, but for now we can vouch for Fraiche’s frozen yogurt, Plow’s Crispy Potatoes, the Meatball Sandwich from Mario’s Bohemian Cigar Store among others. Get out there and eat, people!
  • Thoughts on Family Food by Chef Mario Batali — Mario Batali discusses the family dinner (and how he got his kids to eat just about everything) on this episode of NPR’s Splendid Table. Fish taco Thursdays? Sign me up, Mario! [… this episode also includes San Francisco’s own Karen Solomon on making simple cured meats at home. Check out her book Jam It, Pickle It, Cure It and Other Cooking Projects and her monthly baby food swap at 18 Reasons, too.]
  • On Buttered Pasta and Expensive Coffee with Chef Gabrielle Hamilton of Prune Restaurant — While I aspire to Mario Batali’s quintessential family dinner, there are nights I can relate much more to Gabrielle Hamilton’s account of boring buttered noodle dinners and cold leftover bites eaten unceremoniously from her kids’ plates. Sound a little bit familiar, anyone? Check out this piece for New York Magazine’s “New York Diet” column, a kind of culinary “day-in-the-life” series.
