Inspiration abounds in San Francisco, with it’s beautiful landscapes and bounty of incredible produce. I fell in love with the city on my first visit in 2006 and I’ve traipsed up and down its hills as often as I can since. (The photo above was snapped during a 2009 trip with my Lubitel camera.) One of the things I miss the most about living in California is the farmers markets, and San Francisco has one of my favorites, at downtown’s Ferry Building. I’ll share a beautiful plum tart on Monday with some of my recent SF spoils.
I was lucky enough to find even more inspiration in my travels to this city last week, as I tasted with some of San Francisco’s true culinary talent. From my first bite of escargot caviar (yep, earthy snail eggs!) to the divine culinary artistry of Dominique Crenn, it was a trip I’ll never forget. Whether it’s an incredible meal, the city’s booming coffee culture, one of the many picturesque museums (I managed a visit to the Legion of Honor this time around), or the hillside cityscapes, I can’t get enough of this west coast city. Luckily, my job is sending me back next week!
