Dungeness Season

It's Dungeness crab season in the Bay Area!

If you're tired if the same old crab cakes, try the House Special Chili Crab at Z&Y Restaurant in Chinatown.

I'll warn your tastebuds: it's pretty spicy. But it's also pretty awesome crab!

Great SF bites: Mission Cheese

The California Gold grilled cheese at Mission Cheese is amazing.

Various melted flavorful cheeses with fig preserve and prosciutto sandwiched between two thick slabs of De La Fattoria Levain.

So good I couldnt save any for the picture.

Get a nice glass of red to go with - their Periscope Mashup or CTZN Zin are delicious accompaniments. And hang with the pretty Mission people for a few hours.

The secret to great macarons?

2) A convection oven

3) Baking in a kitchen with splendid views!
