Chances are you live a stone’s throw away from a Thai restaurant in your neighborhood, and you’ve got a go-to local favorite for pad thai. These days I often find myself traveling north of Berkeley, where there’s quite a few wonderful Thai eateries clustered in Albany, El Cerrito and San Pablo locales.
It’s muddy, it’s rainy, it’s cold…so what better way to come together on a wet winter weekend than in celebration of a big wood-burning oven? The Headlands Center for the Arts is hosting Brick Oven Lovin’ Again, a night of dinner and music on Saturday, February 21st, at 6pm. All donations go towards recouping the costs of renovating the center’s massive wood-burning brick oven.
I’ve lived near Fillmore and Sacramento in San Francisco for about six years. There are benefits to spending so much time in an area — I know exactly where to shop, where to drop off my dry cleaning, and when the neighborhood Victorian gets a new paint job.

Therefore, I didn’t expect to like Elk Creamery’s Smoked Chèvre. But I bought it anyway. I have an open mind and an open palate, […]
It’s been over two years since I first posted here on BAB about the trials and tribulations of making pizza at home and yet not much has changed in my pizza world. I’m still the obnoxiously opinionated, obsessive pizza lover that I’ve always been, rarely without some kind of criticism. My standards are high, I […]
I have a new favorite pizzeria. That’s right, I couldn’t contain myself long enough to not make a beeline to the very first night of service for Pizzeria Delfina (they actually opened for lunch only on Sunday, but who’s counting). Some might think that’s just asking for trouble, but with a pedigree like Delfina, how […]
My friends and colleagues don’t really like to bring up the subject of pizza in front of me. I have quite strong opinions when it comes to the topic, and some people might even think that I have a tendency to go off the deep end. Okay, well, most people. But truly, what is better […]
