Spring has well and truly sprung in these parts. Heck, in the Bay Area we just had summer last week, which is all we’ll get, probably, until September.
Yep, Karl the Fog is back.
Regardless, I just put my stories in the summer issue of Edible East Bay to bed, as we say in the print biz, so I’m long overdue sharing links to my spring stories for the same mag.
The issue features a lovely cover, above, from my photog friend Stacy Ventura.
An eclectic offering of five side dishes from me this issue. In no particular order:
1. I seem to be on a hot & spicy kick. Find my profile of a Berkeley hot sauce store that gives chileheads a ton of choices.
2. And then read about an Oakland spice apothecary whose offerings go way beyond salt & pepper in a charming shop that’s a favorite with both home cooks and culinary professionals.
3. Also back on the sustainable seafood beat, with a profile of new fishmongers doing a lot of their own sourcing–straight from the bay in their own boat.
4. Come to think of it, I’ve been covering bread a lot lately, too. Meet a baker doing cool stuff with whole grains who has found a new home.
5. On the food security front: I showcase a digital platform designed to prevent food waste and curb hunger with just a few clicks of a mouse.
Summer issue out next week. Side dishes and a feature in that edition too. More soon.
