CHEF MONICA POPE
Travel Blog, Part 1 – San Francisco/Bay Area – August 2010
I was supposed to Tweet during my vacation but, because I prefer to eat life instead of tweet life, I saved all my tweets and decided to blog them instead. Call it “twogging.” That’s kind of like my other new favorite word: “GLOCAL” ( going local ).
*We land in SFO and hit Ferry Plaza Seafood. Had a Deluxe Seafood Platter — the best Fanny Bays and Little Skookums I’ve had…ever. Also, boiled shrimp and mussels with salted caper butter and Acme bread.
* I also had a flight of white wines starting with a Muscatel, then a Reisling and a French something…who knows now
*That was all a preamble for our 1:30 lunch reservation at Slanted Door.
*We’re sussing out the ferry plaza stores for our provisions to bring to the bay house. We check out Boulette’s Larder and get yelled out by one of the owners — that’s always fun. We take some pictures and promise to only use them as our own personal porn
*We buy a mixed carton of wonderful mushrooms….all local
