Sandwich Travels

August is National Sandwich month! Despite not being a huge fan of sandwiches, there are many that I love around the world and I thought it would be fun to share my favorites. France - my absolute favorite is ham and butter on a baguette, a classic.  When I first move to France I thought this was the most bizarre combination, that is, until I tasted it. Forget mustard. Forget mayonnaise. The … [Read more...]

Upcoming SPAM Misadventures

It's so funny how life is a series of little events all strung together. I don't often think of SPAM, I do like it, but it is not in Mr. Misadventures repertoire and he does all the cooking in our household! For the most part I usually eat it in the form of musubi (pictured above) from food trucks in San Francisco.  But I also love it in fried rice and with eggs (but then again, I love anything … [Read more...]

Great Grilled Cheese in San Francisco

Ah, the classic grilled cheese...I grew up with Velveeta, so my cheese sandwiches were melted Parkay butter, a slice of Velveeta melted to perfection with a squirt of ketchup.  And even though even I don't make them that often any more, I've graduated to a good cheddar, real butter, and SOSU sriracha ketchup. Sometimes I will throw in an egg in too, but then I am not sure that is technically still … [Read more...]

Interview with Courtney Taira of King’s Hawaiian

In the San Francisco Bay Area there was (I am not sure how large it is now) a huge Portuguese community and in particular Portuguese Catholic.  Every town had a St. Anthony's Portuguese Catholic Association and a hall. Those halls were magical places where people … [Read more...]

Amuse-Bouche (Food News) for June 28

Welcome back to my weekly food news series where I share a little bit of the news that has come across my plate in the last seven days. I love Cowgirl Creamery, and lucky for me it is 2 blocks down the street at the Ferry Building. But in terms of where the company is based, they are located in the richly dairy Point Reyes area on the Marin coast. After decades in the restaurant business, … [Read more...]

Towards the end of October, I traveled to Boston for a week.  It was a busy five days with work and a conference, but I had a great time and wanted to share some highlights.  Of course the World Series was also going on so that added to the excitement!

Friday Food Foto – Me Méli Loukoumades

Golden Greek goodness.  That what I called these Loukoumades from the Me Méli food cart in my AFAR highlight and I still haven't found a better way to describe them! I visited with two of the three sisters that run Me Méli while I was out at a work event and they were as nice as can be.  Only two months into the food truck biz and their hot fried dough with honey, cinnamon and walnut are … [Read more...]
