As a Korean-American foodie who resides in West Oakland, I’m lucky that there’s a slew of fine eateries not too far from our home all along Telegraph Avenue in Temescal.
Thanks to my recent reading, its finally happened. I’ve met him– my new historical crush, Stanislaw Leszczynski.But it really isn’t his laundry list of honors that impresses me. I’d still like him if here were merely an viscount or baron or margrave. It’s his penchant for popularizing and ascribing names to food that I like. Really, really popular food. King Stanislaw, it seems, was quite a gastronome, as his painting might hint at, given his multiple chins.
