San Francisco Cooking

Hello,

Just thought you all might like to check out this interesting on-line resource.

http://www.sfgate.com/foodat20/

This offers recipes selected as "the best" of 20 years of cooking columns in the San Francisco Chronicle. As you might expect, food in Northern California offers a blend of traditions: Mexican, Asian, Mediterranean, and down-home U.S.A. (Some folks think that the Chronicle has the best food section of any U.S. newspaper.)

Have fun!

Never paid much attention to the Cronicle food section, but I believe San Francisco has the best food in the country.

When I plan a trip to SF, I schedule restaurants just like I would any other tourist attraction. For instance, my last trip, Ana Mandara was scheduled for 10 p.m. on Saturday night, after the New Years parade. Next trip, Dotties and the new, supposedly improved Sears Fine Foods will be on the schedule for breakfast, the Zuni Cafe and Fog City Diner for lunch, and AsiaSF for dinner, drinks, and dancing. I was extremely impressed with Ana Mandara, so I will most likely have dinner there again next trip.

my first thought was, "what a treat"!, but it's more than just rice.

I vote for the Chicago Tribune as the best food section newspaper - ever!! And I took the Chronicle for years.

This is a great site and the white chili - 95?92? - is really good!
