Memories of visiting the Hostess store as a little kid rushed back tonight when I popped into a 7-Eleven in downtown San Francisco. Think Twinkie + Yodel shell + Crocodile = Chocodile.Continue reading...

Sometimes you’ve gotta take stock. Reflect on things. See where ya stand. I decided today would be a good day for that. After more than 12000 days on this planet, if the saying is true, I guess this is what I am. Many of you asked what I would eat today so, here is every bite and gulp.
Skim milk no sugar
Black Forest Ham, Sweet Soppresata, Provolone, Roasted Peppers, Red onion, oil and vinegar on Ciabatta bread
Bell and Evans Hill Country Hill Country Classic. 3 Drums and 1 thigh.

Alaska was fun but now I am in Mexico. However, before I move on and start blogging about taco’s, enchiladas, and cerveza I put together a little video of the best of the best from Alaska. Enjoy!Continue reading...

This is the biggest ribeye steak in the house. How do I know this? Before this was charred to perfection and placed in front of me, it was shown to me raw like a rare jewel. I have never witnessed this custom before. I thought it was a bit odd at first but 20 seconds in, as my big brown’s gazed deep into the meat, I began to see the full value. It was mid week, and I journeyed to Carroll Gardens with 2 of my oldest and dearest friends. We had made a pact, as many friends of a few decades do, that each year we would share a meal together to check up on our lives or lives’ progress as it were. This year we came together at…Continue reading...

The British invaded the REEL TASTY deck last month with it’s comfort classics and it’s, now icon, international man of mystery. Aimee and I spun up our take on some of those classics while Austin Powers provided the entertainment.
For those who are unfamiliar with our dinners, Reel Tasty is Forking Tasty’s summer supper club where Aimee, my co-chef/host, and I screen a movie on a 2 story building while our guests sample some of our latest and tastiest gourmet dishes. What better way to start the evening but with a specialty Pimm’s cup, some Port-glazed walnuts with stilton and some curry shortbreads. Ohh, how…Continue reading...

Sometimes your second choice turns out to be great. Let me tell you what happened. My friends and I arrived in Victoria wanting more of Ferris Oysterbar because we loved it so much. When we got there the wait was one hour. I asked the lady what we should do because there was no room at the bar for us to sit and have a drink while we waited. So I suggested she take our names and we would be back in about 40 minutes. She would not take our name. She basically wanted a group of six to wait on the staircase (you have to walk up stairs to get to the restaurant) for the hour until something opened up. A little annoyed and frustrated we left and went for a drink at a place down the block called Sauces. Sauces is a cool bar/restaurant with a good drink menu. After an hour and a drink or two we headed back to Ferris.Continue reading...
