Green is Good

In this age of rampant greenwashing, it’s hard to know what to believe. Everywhere you turn someone has an eco, organic, sustainable party line—how can you tell the fakers from the real deal? But there’s one business in San Francisco that setting the standard for green business, and proving that it’s possible to be both successful and conscientious: Mixt Greens.


Dear Mixt Greens,
Thanks for not trashing the planet while
making us lunch. Love, us.

Greetings
film snots ... In light of all the ass kissing that’s about to rain down on S.F. once 7x7’s Best Of season kicks off, let me be the first to offer a preemptive pucker. Who do you know that's an authority on San Francisco history? I mean the small stuff, people you never heard of in the gay old bohemian days of gay old San Francisco? Juicy stories, like who shot who in the Embarcadero, August, 1879 …*

Biodynamic Wines: For Earth Day (and Beyond...)

Apropos of Earth Day (my wedding anniversary, BTW), let's talk about the growing movement toward organics and, especially, biodynamics in wine production. Many wine producers think biodynamics is a load of mystical hooey, but it's hard to argue with the satisfaction that so many producers have gained by converting all or some of their vineyard land to this kind of farming. It's also hard to argue against it when some of the most august estates in France--DRC, Domaine Leroy, M. Chapoutier--are doing it, not to mention top California producers like Araujo, Benziger and Robert Sinskey.

Candybar: No Just Desserts

I often have evenings where a sweet-tooth craving overwhelms me. One that needs to be fixed right then and there—and then I grumble (I'm a woman of more than one rant) about why on earth there isn't a place designed for these moments, places made for nothing but tucking into a piece of pie, a slice of triple-layer cake, a pudding. Something comforting and familiar. (Something like this strawberry crostata from the Zuni cookbook that my friend Alan makes. Mmmmmm.)
