We here at 7x7 are big fans of the bubbly. We use the term "champers" often and without irony. We may or may not be the proud owners of a desk-side office Veuve Cliquot fridge. So when Champagne purveyor Fat Cork presented us with an afternoon tasting, we politely obliged, promptly squealed, and readied our flutes.
Will someone please take us out to the ballgame? The weather is prime for a balmy, beer-soaked evening, and the king of pizza is slinging slices at AT&T Park starting at tonight’s Giants-Dodgers series opener. What more could you ask for on a hot summer night?
7x7 asks the Bay Area's chefs for the recipes to their most loved cocktails, bar snacks, starters, mains, and desserts. If there's a dish you can't stop thinking about and want to make at home, email firstname.lastname@example.org. Your wish may end up on the blog, along with the actual recipe from the chef.
As Traci Des Jardins would drive over the Golden Gate Bridge en route back into San Francisco, she’d gaze upon the Presidio’s thick forests and wonder how that dramatic plot of land, now a national park, came to be. As she devised the concept for The Commissary, her brand-new restaurant housed in the former army post’s main barracks, she was inspired by its history as a military settlement originally established by Spanish conquistadores in the 1800s.
