But every now and then you discover a shiny gem that reminds you how lucky we are.

Seven Great Foie Gras Dishes To Try Before July 1

Like it or not, California's state-wide ban on foie gras begins on July 1. If you're one of the many pro-foie types living in San Francisco, you should know that lots of restaurants are making the most of the next seven weeks with plans to serve foie to the bitter end. Many chefs see foie gras as a link to the history of gastronomy, as French greats like Fernand Point started working it into refined cookery in the late 19th Century.

The Spirit of India Beckons to a SF Writer in Her Quest to Start a Family

I first came to India in 2004 to heal after my mother’s 
death. I immediately found comfort in a place that was so completely foreign, and I welcomed the distraction from all-encompassing grief.
