Ever since I began doing food writing, I've seen the same PR agency representing some of the top chefs and restaurants. Turns out its founder has an interesting story of her own.
I've been fortunate to write about so many unique couples, but this is up there. When a couple marries in Union Square on a weekday afternoon, you know they have to be a bit different than most. Mazel tov to Ken & Kathy. They certainly deserve happiness.
I covered a Chabad-sponsored evening on Knishes and Kugels.
I was a bit skeptical about a whole book about yogurt at first, though now I see that was silly. I love this book, and soon I'll have a third article to post about it as well, in which I taste-test some of the recipes.
I first came across the guy known as "Jeff the 420 Chef" for a Bay Area Bites story, that he was offering classes on how to make almost tasteless "canna-butter." Little did I know what that would lead me to. He has a fascinating story.
I think it's obvious that we really enjoyed our meal at Berkeley's Tigerlily.

There were a lot last month. There was Benu by Corey Lee, which is gorgeous but it's safe to say I won't be cooking anything from it; one by a woman who goes by the Milk Maid to help you make cheese; and two books about yogurt. For more on one of those books, by Cheryl Sternman Rule, see my other forthcoming posts.
