  • D, the one thing we are missing in Temescal proper is a market.  Lots of ... into the 'hood learn to cook someone will build that market.Re: response to BiRite:  When I met my wife, she lived right around the corner from BiRite.  Their stuff is great, but it's expensive and it gets absurdly crowded, or did.  It's tiny. We met at Rainbow Grocer... Read More

  • In the East Bay, esp my neck of the woods (North Oakland/Berkeley), it's an embarrassment of riches in this as in so many other things.  Andronico's, a formerly swanky market, is all but gone, and AG Ferrari is closing up its last shop after years of sinking into dismal faux Italian market-hood. But others have taken their place, albeit not in e... Read More

  • OK, what's your favorite market in your area for buying good meats, dairy, produce, etc. when you want to prepare a proper meal, likely accompanied by wine? Or just for everyday living? And what do they provide that you value so?Last couple of times I was through San Fran I realized Bi-Rite in the Mission would be mine there. Very much appreciat... Read More

  • The amount of viognier in a syrah based wine is always very small, usually 5% or less.  Syrah is a pretty flavorful grape, so it's like putting a little salt on a steak while you cook it.  It might have a small impact, but if you had better or more flavorful material to begin with, you wouldn't be able to pick it out.  Far and away the idea as I...

  • One of my few discoveries this year has been CA Viognier of all things.As per usual, someone on WB posted the details of the latest Dirty & Rowdy release, and at first glance, it seemed like a release I wouldn't be interested in....then I got to remembering a 2014 Kamen Viognier that a friend opened recently (in India nonetheless), and how surpr...

  • Spent the day riding my Harley touring bike in the morning to a local H-D dealer chili cook-off event, then with Sandra and our daughter and her friends in Washington DC to attempt to see an exhibit at the Hirshhorn Museum - but Sandra and I were turned away because they were over capacity!  We met one of our daughter's friends who had waited fo...

  • Pinot Noir is most assuredly a fashion item, although it's been around for as long as there's been wine in California.Agoston Haraszthy planted it in the 1800s. Neibaum too. In the 1900s, Martin Ray and Martini planted it and Tchelistcheff made what was supposed to be a legendary PN in 1946 for Beaulieu Vineyards.All of them tried to make someth... Read More

  • Fat = flavor   ???????????The flavor comes from the meat, unless you're particularly enamored of the taste of fat itself. Helps when there's bone in, too, which is why I like Porterhouse. The fat just makes it softer and easier to cook and eat. Nothing less 'flavorful' then bland, grain-fed, fatty jello-y beef that goes for an arm and a leg beca... Read More

  • These are a tad bit late.  We were fortunate to have both my son and the grandson of an old (aren't all) high school classmate at the house for three days.  My son picked him up for me and drove him up - the purpose - he just started culinary school and my old buddy said he wanted to cook this week while he was off.Gee - that suits me. Send him ... Read More

  • Sorry to hear of your experience at Cook. I should have mentioned they are a small place, showing up without reservations with a party larger than two would be problematic.So where did you go in Calistoga that was so meh? PM me if you don't want to mention it here. It's just as important to know who to avoid as it is who to visit. Read More
