A lovely list, as always. I especially love the inclusion of Anita Calero, who was my frequent customer 25 years ago when I was with Dean & Deluca. I had a lot of exposure to some really wonderful people, but Anita was the loveliest.

Yes! Anthony Bourdain is the best out there, and I think Parts Unknown is his best series yet. Nice list as always.

1) I second Jessica. The craigslist gal is damned funny. So I wrote to tell her so and immediately subscribed to her blog. 2) If you enjoyed the CP slideshow I recommend the book she published for the restaurant's 40th anniversary. Really, really good. I was obsessed for a good long while. It's packed with fantastic photos and stories. And to you--great favorites list as always.

Hello

HS: Hi Dolores - it was a gift from a friend :) They're pretty great, no?

I really need to take some lessons from Living with Less. I don't think I could be that streamlined but I could certainly trim the fat a bit!

Oh! That chive blossom vinegar is too much! Must make. You always challenge me to think differently of garnishes.

Speaking of....

Have you heard of sea asparagus? I'm vacationing Sitka, Alaska and came across this curious little garnish. It's a weed-like seaweed oddly shaped like a tiny asparagus. Its flavor is consistent with most seaweed - very salty with a rich taste of the sea - and its texture is like biting through a chive - if it weren't hollow. Think of a watery crunch consistent through the stalk. Anyway, here's a little photo tour if you so desire:

And for dessert, I had spruce tip cookies! Yes, as in the pine tree. Imagine a doughy sugar cookie, with a whisper of pine. Oh the possibilities!

Much love.

Thanks so much for posting that Sourced Cities guide! I'm moving to San Francisco from NYC next month and I'm so lost in looking for a neighborhood! I love your guide to SF, too and am so excited, but definitely need some pointers! We're a young couple just married; do you have any specific neighborhood recommendations!? Thanks for your constant inspirations!!

I have those ladies' legs, too! Bought at the Marche aux Puces in Geneva in 2003, now living with me in Chicago. A reliable conversation starter at parties, for sure.


Just ate your Super Natural Every Day mixed green salad w/berries & parm and it made my Monday. Thank you!

I particularly want to thank you for mentioning what you are reading--once again I have followed your tip, and am entranced with the Orphan Master.

HS: Yeah - it's incredibly good.
