Bits & Bites

Wow. I haven’t done a weekend round-up (even though it’s Monday!) kind of post in quite some time. I also haven’t blogged in quite some time, my apologies!

How great is this? My partner Adam has been doing some amazing food styling lately and just recently completed a shoot with our friend William for Essence Magazine at Access Hollywood’s Shaun Robinson’s house. How beautiful are Adam’s cupcakes? Pick up this month’s Essence magazine and check it out. Way to go, Adam!

And damn if Jill Scott doesn’t look hot on that cover. God bless my curvaceous women!

We were in San Francisco this past weekend and I’m almost embarrassed to share how much we crammed into 3 days. Zuni, Nopa, Bi-Rite, Miette Confiserie, Chez Panisse, and Tartine along with a going-away party for our best friends and a birthday party for a special little man. I’m stuffed on so many levels.

Best things about this weekend? Chocolate Ice Cream with Bergamot Olive Oil and Sea Salt at Bi-Rite. And Pasta at Chez Panisse. The worst part? Missing Heidi yet again.

Ok, really everything at Chez Panisse was the best part of the weekend. A special thanks to sommelier Jonathan Waters for such great care and service.

Amy has a nice round-up about honey. And I managed to eat honey ice cream twice this past weekend. And then I remembered Ruth Reichl hates honey. And then I was sad.

Speaking of Ruth, it’s great to see this month’s Gourmet Magazine and its focus on all things Latin. I’ll be blogging about my trip to the offices of Gourmet in the next few days as well as my new favorite food. And how cute Ms. Reichl is in person and how I’d love to own a wig that looks like her hair.

    Many congratulations, Adam! The cupcakes look stunningly beautiful (and your new hair cut looks gorgeous :)) Glad you both had a lovely time in SF – I keep missing Heidi too! kx
