There’s something inherently celebratory in the way authentic Mexican food is enjoyed. I mean, happiness just exudes from fish tacos, chili rellenos, mole enchiladas, guacamole and tequila – am I right?! Last week, Todd and I threw an intimate dinner party, for some of our favorite peers, at our beloved Oakland haunt, Doña Tomás. There’s nothing like being transported to Mexico via Doña Tomás’ seasonally changing menu – with each wonderfully regional dish derived from organic, local and sustainable produce and ingredients by owners Tom Schnetz and Dona Savitsky. It was a perfect venue for a gathering of friends, old and new, on a warm spring night.

Sunday Suppers by Spotted SF
I’ve long been a fan of the Cannelle et Vanille blog by Aran Goyoaga and the intimate Sunday Suppers hosted by Karen Mordechai. What a delight to learn these two are good friends and would be hosting a fun day of food styling and photography at Karen’s studio in Brooklyn!
Farm To Table
There’s nothing more enjoyable than waking up early on a Saturday morning for a trip to our local farmer’s market. It’s the best way to savor seasonal produce at the peak of it’s freshness, to discover artisan products and to support our local farmers.
