Just when you think you’ve gotten through the most food-filled time of year, the Fancy Food Show descends upon the Bay Area and rears its tasty and gluttonous head.
This amazingly large annual show takes up two entire Moscone Center expo halls and contains 80,000 food and beverage products, 1300 exhibitors and 17,000 attendees.
Tim & Erin Archuleta are the co-founders & owners of ICHI Catering, ICHI Lucky Cat Deli, and ICHI Sushi. They share their favorite spots for dining, drinking, date night, books and guilty pleasures.
To honor the memory of Martin Luther King, Jr., the iconic civil rights leader and Nobel Peace prize winner I am sharing quotes in which he expresses thoughts about hunger, poverty and food-related injustice.
The Good Food Awards honor food artisans who demonstrate high standards in taste and sustainability and kicks off a month-long series of events showcasing sustainable food producers.
So if you love enchiladas, but aren’t crazy about making them; or if you simply crave an easy-to-make hearty one-dish meal that will please your entire family, here is my recipe for Cheesy Enchilada Casserole.

Daniel Patterson is a self-taught chef well known to eaters and readers for his food, expanding Bay Area restaurant group, and writing. His fine dining Coi Restaurant opened in 2006 in San Francisco, and won two Michelin stars in 2008. Frank Bruni of the New York Times named Coi as a top ten new restaurant outside of New York, and the San Francisco Chronicle awarded Coi four stars. Patterson opened a more casual concept called Il Cane Rosso in the Ferry Building in 2009. Plum opened in Oakland last year. On December 1st, Patterson reported on his Twitter feed that he was the soup cook “at least for a little while” for the Plum lunch debut. Bay Area Bites caught up with Patterson soon after that via phone interview.
It delights me to no end that there are still small food publications out there doing their thing in this very difficult, very online media-driven society we now live in. So Happy New Year and get reading ya’ll! Let’s ring in 2011 by turning a few pages.
