Salty, oily fried sardines @hogislandoysterco, best enjoyed by the bay with my sweet friend @alex_loscher.
Chocolate soldiers preparing for birthday battle @noevalleybakery.
✨All of the lights✨
Sexy summer snacks @tartinemanufactory.
Light is beauty that only darkness can reveal.
@nite_nite_nite has created a space that feels like a sweet, spicy, fish saucey hug at @nyumbai. I’ve thoroughly enjoyed living in her beautifully chaotic world this week as she navigates @nytimes interviews in between packed services.
Go eat all of the things from @noodlegirlrestaurant @pinkyandreds @agirlnamedpinky and @olddamascusfare at @ucberkeleyofficial. @lacocinasf has taken residence at CAL’s student union for the entire school year and - pro tip - you don’t have to be a student to eat there 😘. Also makes me wonder what college would have been like if bagels hadn’t been the most compelling food option....🤔
Reaching for the ⭐️⭐️⭐️ with @besharamsf this week.
Wow. I am filled with gratitude, pride, and heart bursting excitement to see two of my beloved families on @foodandwine magazine’s list of the 40 most influential restaurants in the past 40 years. Thank you @gavinkaysen and @danielboulud, not only for bringing @spoonandstable and @restaurantdaniel to life and positively impacting our industry in doing so, but for providing a platform for so many to pursue their dreams.
So totally thrilled that the incredibly talented @a.garcia2017 will be leading the kitchen at @virginhotelssf. Get ready, San Francisco. #powercouple
Missing my old friend @jenpelka, but I am eternally grateful for her sun-flecked Champagne mecca that makes for the best afternoon reading spot. ❤️🍾 📖
Hella California @cheznicosf.
My favorite facts from today’s board meeting - 1) @lacocinasf has opened more successful restaurants than any for-profit restaurant group in the Bay Area 2) Three of @sfmagazine’s ten best restaurants of 2018 are @lacocinasf graduates 3) @lacocinasf incubator entrepreneurs generated revenues in excess of $3 million in 2017 and created 95 jobs. 🙏🏻🙌🏻✨
Corn, chanterelles, perigord truffle, viola flowers @spoonandstable by way of @tracidesjardins @audieg @jardinieresf. Happy #synergyseries 3.0.
@jamieannmalone = 👸🏼
I am so proud of and happy for @lacocinasf graduate @nite_nite_nite. She opened her first restaurant, @nyumbai in February and was named one of @sfchronicle’s rising star chefs today. Proof that dreams come true when we’re brave enough to dream them and ruthless in doing the work.
Sweet bricks of ❤️, as beautiful as they are delicious @edwardsdessertkitchen.
All the✌🏻after a long day of training with @avolpe73. Two weeks from opening day!
Dining with my chosen family (@stephanie_castellucci) + receiving thoughtful hospitality and delicious food from my chosen family (@spoonandstable) + drinking like a 👸🏻 = so much gratitude 🙏🏻.
