French pastries from Gerard Mulot

Saturday, August 17th, 2013

Gerard Mulot is a master pastry maker in Paris.  I have no idea how people choose which pastry to buy, they are all works of art!


Mission Chinese

Sunday, June 23rd, 2013

Thanks to a tip from one of my wedding couples, Catherine and Adam, I checked out Mission Chinese in San Francisco on my last visit.  Oh heaven!

Super unique food combos…lots of pickled, salted and thrice cooked stuff.

In order, here’s what I had:

1)  Stir-fried Sweet Peas, Pea Tendrils, Numbing Chili, Red Onion Pickles

2)  Special Egg-Egg dish

3)  Kung Pao Pastrami, Explosive Chili, Celery, Potato, Sweet Peppers, Roasted Peanuts
