Your guide to the tastiest foodie happenings going down this week. Bon appétit!
Like any world-class city, San Francisco is a variegated banquet of exceptional food, even in the wee-hours of a thirsty Friday or in the starry-eyed throes of a Saturday night. Yet, in a city full of midweek festivals, shows, movies, and music, the real question is—where’s the best food at 10:45pm on a Tuesday?
After sampling four artistically-poured tequila cocktails, all a refreshing departure from the ho-hum margarita, we have a winner! Bartender Curtis Hefley’s perfectly crafted “the Family Reunion,” which combines maple syrup, absinthe, and Hornitos Black Barrel tequila for a most flavorful homecoming.
Apple cider vinegar (ACV) has been used for centuries to detoxify, energize, and strengthen the body. I first started incorporating the tonic into my daily routine years ago when friends in Japan shared that they would drink it with their morning hot water and lemon to support digestion and detoxification.
As Indian summer fades into the San Franciscso sunset, the cooler weather prompts us to reach for warmer gear and warming beers. We find ourselves bypassing the lighter, summer beer styles and stocking up on Harvest or Fall brews: maltier ales with a tad more alcohol and a bit of spice. And while pumpkin beers generally fall into this category - Almanac Beer Co. and 21st Amendment Brewery offer excellent local choices - we thought we would explore some squash-free beers that both celebrate and pair well with Autumn.
Besides embarking upon a national book tour this month for The Pizza Bible (Ten Speed Press), Tony Gemignani is busy opening three restaurants in Vegas, another in LA, and launching his own brand of flour, Tony’s Californian Artisan.
