Home Cooks Feed Community With the Help of Oakland Start-Up Josephine

On a grey afternoon in Oakland, I'm headed toward Stanford Avenue in Emeryville to pick up a dinner I had ordered online. Rather than using Caviar or Munchery, or one of the many on-demand meal service apps meant to have your dinner ordered, delivered, and eaten within an hour, I opted for a home-cooked meal (Cá Kho Tộ, a traditional Southern Vietnamese dish, to be exact) that must literally be picked up from someone else's home.

Exotic Japanese Ingredients Crop up at One Wine Country Farm

Local and seasonal ingredients are the culinary and environmental mandate of Wine Country. So what's a Japanese restaurant to do when its intricate kaiseki menu calls for a special kind of turnip that dates back to the 1400s? Rather than importing, one new restaurant is opting to grown their own.

Can The Perennial Really Be the Most Sustainable Restaurant in the World?

When one hears of the mission behind The Perennial—essentially to be The Most Sustainable Restaurant in the World—it’s easy to write it off as the kind of startup hyperbole that's become so prevalent in San Francisco. Seriously, if we had a dollar for every industrious foodie or techie who swears her idea will change the world, we could buy stock in Apple and move to Hawaii. But skeptics as we are, we love to root for our home team. And the folks at The Perennial seem to have the stuff to pull it off.

The Best Spots to Slurp Oysters in San Francisco (From Cheap to Luxe)

We San Franciscans love...no, looove...our oysters. We like them with happy hour prices and drinks specials that are gentle on our wallets, but we're also willing to shell out for the really good stuff. Here are our favorite local places to throw back a dozen.
