If you’re looking to change up your routine eating habits, instead of simply swapping recipes with friends, swap entire books full of new cooking ideas. There is actually an event dedicated to foodies seeking new eats. It’s called a Cookbook Swap and Drive, and it’s happening tonight, Monday, Sept. 26.
In Northern California, late summer harvest means pears and apples, figs or walnuts. It means fresh, good tasting food for a fair price. You don’t need to wait until Saturday mornings for the epic farmer’s market at the Ferry Building. Wednesdays and Thursdays provide opportunities to get some good tasting farm food.
