This week's tablehopper: extra sauce, please.


Dungeness crab cocktail and martinis at Tadich Grill.

Hey—how you doin’? Keeping warm and well-fed, with maybe a little sauce thrown on top? I am definitely going to be enjoying some sauce this Thursday at Arlequin’s annual Champagne tasting. As far as being well-fed, I guess the proof is in the pudding (and the giblet gravy): Grub Street asked me to keep a week-long diary about everything I ate, starting on Thanksgiving. Yeah, it’s a doozy—what did you expect, salads?

Hey, so whatcha doing on Friday? You should come by La Cocina’s Second Annual Gift Fair! It’s from 4pm-9pm at the Mission Cultural Center for Latino Arts. There will be all kinds of excellent and edible gifts. And I’ll be there signing and selling books—perfect for any food lovin’ friends and family.

In closing, I wanted to share two fab videos I have really enjoyed this week: one is about Guy Savoy in Paris, and the other is a wonderful homage to Thomas Keller from Grant Achatz and the Alinea team. (I give you permission to take some time and watch them both, heh.)

Warm wishes,

Marcia Gagliardi
