Re: “So You Wanna Hunt Mushrooms?

I felt Charles's article to be very informative, considerate of others health, and keen on safety first. I'm a gourmet cook who lives in the Sausalito Hills area, and I'm an fungi enthusiast who want's to be a member of SOMA MSSF and BAMS. Too bad I have missed the last Jan fair date, but I'll inquire when will be the next one before foraging season ends.
Thank you Debbie for been informative on the other Mycological Societies, making us welcome to be a part of BMAS. I take it you have a wealth of knowledge about good and bad mushrooms, so I'll trust your discarding of mycelial transfer of toxins between adjacent fungi is just that, specious speculation with no true attributed to that. I will be contacting you for next upcoming events.
Regards,
Marco

Re: “FEED Me

We started using Tim/FEED when we first opened Bistro 100 (100 miles of local foods) last month in Petaluma: They have made it very simple to pull vegetables from local farms for me as a new restaurant owner... We braised the baby fennel in beurre monte last Wednesday for a winemaker dinner 1 example; the vegetables we get from the farms through FEED Sonoma are in a way magical, full of flavor and vibrant and I beleive with the support of more restaurants and diners who seek these restraunt who use FEED Sonoma will only strengthen our local small farmers, economy and health... Thank you for the article is is "Right-On!"

Re: “Turmeric, Wonder Spice

Yes! Turmeric is scientifically proven to be as effective as ibuprofen. AND, it prompts quicker generation of stem cells, which help the body heal faster. And if you hate the taste, put the powder in capsules and use them like pills. IT'S AMAZING! Even dogs can have it - helps an old dog with arthritis without any unwanted side effects. Miraculous.

Re: “Fork in the Road

This is our neighborhood spot and we are so happy that Fork is moving in. We have loved them in their downtown location and feel so lucky to have them as our new go to for casual food dining. This location might have been "cursed" in the past, but Sarah's casual, delicious, clean and affordable food will turn that around.
Good luck Sarah.

Re: “Bowled Over

Serving organic chicken doesn't strike me as remarkable.

Re: “Bowled Over

how can you call ORGANIC chicken in a restaurant 'unremarkable'?! If you're so jaded and bored, try another profession! :)

Re: “So You Wanna Hunt Mushrooms?

Other than that specious speculation on the mycelial transfer of toxins between adjacent fungi, this is an excellent and informative article.

But SOMA and the MSSF are just part of the spectrum of Mycological Societies in California. Check out the full list here, at the website of the North American Mycological Association (NAMA): http://namyco.org/clubs/index.html#C

One prominent local society, the Bay Area Mycological Society (BAMS), puts on a free Fungus Fair and public collecting foray every winter at Pt. Reyes. Our next Fungus Fair date is our tenth anniversary at that National Park, and will be held on the weekend of January 4th.

All are welcome to contribute collections and attend the Fair.

Re: “Fork in the Road

I love the food they offer from the truck. I send all good luck to them at the new spot. It is a great little location they just need a draw = good food for affordable prices. We will be there when it opens!

Re: “Better Bitters

Angostura aromatic bitters has never changed its formula. This is a very wrong statement that should not have been made!

Re: “Soup Ninjas

YeeHaw! It's great to hear of another ramen place in the Redwood Empire, even if it's a bi-monthly pop up (sounds like a low-T problem, but I who am I to bad-mouth a good slurpping opportunity).

But, the "ramen injustice" you cited may be more about a lack of wandering than a lack of ramen. So, here's hoping to start a list:

1) Shige, Cotati, his absolutely outstanding ramen, and bright, cut right, sushi too.

2) Yao Kiku in Santa Rosa has good ramen, at real good prices, and a broad menu of other Japanese food.

Now you go...give two more or I wont give you another....

P.S. Don't feel bad about missing the other places. The PD's bite club actually complained that there weren't enough pho places in Sonoma County, and we have more noodle houses than non-corporate burger joints.

Re: “Bigger & Better

Had an amazing oceanic dinner there recently: oysters, soft shell crab, sole, and briny martinis. They did Poseidon proud!

Re: “Delectations of Empire

I'll take that place around the corner. At least they don't trash the other establishments.

Re: “Delectations of Empire

When did Mac and Cheese multiply like rabbits in every hip place across the country? When did rich people start eating poor people food? It's a cheap starch worth a nickel and sold for ten dollars.

Re: “Secret Cookie Man

ZIX Cookies are dynamite! They will blast your taste buds to heaven. When you want cookies for really special treats, they are the ones to buy. Some people love them because they are gluten-free. I love them because they are incredibly tasty.
