For the third and final installment of our Pier to Plate series we went behind the scenes with Quince Chef Mike Tusk to get a good look at his own technique for preparing a wild caught local California King Salmon. Watch as he prepares, fillets and serves us some Salmon Tartare (and cured fish) with wild fennel pollen, cucumber and caviar.
Get a glimpse of the yearly Dia de los Muertos Parade and Altars in the Mission's Garfield Park.
Last Friday, the final piece of the new Bay Bridge was laid (it weighed two million pounds). It marks the completion of the largest structure of its kind anywhere in the world. The new Bay Bridge is scheduled to open in 2013, so don't start revving your engines just yet.
On Saturday, Civic Center was transformed into a snowboard park complete with ramps, rails and jumps. This was all part of the Downtown Throwdown series where $5,000 was up for grabs.
Saturday's sunny afternoon was ideal for hanging out in Golden Gate Park at the 23rd Annual Jimmy's Old Car Picnic. The wide array of vintage cars and BBQ proved to be a great alternative to the crowds at TI Music Fest.
Look down at your plate. Do you know where that food came from? It's the question of the decade, if not the century, and everybody (in the Bay Area anyway) is paying attention. Surrounded by open water, San Francisco has quite an advantage over our landlocked sister cities when it comes to indulging in fresh seafood. We wanted to take a closer look at the journey our local fish takes on its way to the dinner table, so we hung out at Pier 45 to document the process. The first part of our three-part series is all about the pier.
