Crème de le Crème


Photography by Paul Razo

My idea of a perfect weekday morning: a leisurely breakfast while reading the paper at Myth Café (large coffee and a fat slice of banana “monkey” bread, please) followed by a decadent hours-long mani-pedi at the nearby Le Crème in Jackson Square. The reality? Me, hopping out of a cab, slightly waterlogged from the drizzle to scope out the spa and squeeze in a treatment before rushing back to the office for a meeting.

Mushrooms: The Black Market

What’s exported to Europe from here, but underappreciated at home? The Bay Area’s black trumpet mushrooms, according to Connie Green, the owner of Wine Forest Mushrooms and long-time forager of wild fungi for some of the Bay Area’s top chefs—from Todd Humphries of Martini House to Thomas Keller of the French Laundry to Hiro Sone of Ame. Green ships out her prized trumpets, which she says grow better here than anywhere else, to cities like Barcelona and Paris. “But only a few chefs [here] really know what to do with them,” she says of what she calls the “blue cheese of mushrooms” because of their full flavor. According to Green, these select chefs include Traci Des Jardins, Mark Franz and Charles Phan.
