Exploring the Culinary Lifestyle

The 100 mile rule, From the Maryland Gazette

A bartender( mixologist- really?) to open a new restaurant in SF. From SFGATE.   

Chocolate and wine , Dove and E.& J. Gallo team up for this non pairing. I have tested chocolates and wines from all over the world and have only found one, sorta match. This is all emotional, not culinary. Don’t get me wrong, emotional is not a bad thing. From Media Post News 

Cupcakes from Houston. Good, but the best ones I know of , besides my wife’s, are at Citizen Cake in San Francisco. Chef Elizabeth Faulkner was one of the first places that I am aware of that was doing the upscale cupcake thing.
