Copyright 2018 Do Cartwheels with Me 

Food is a celebration &

should be a cause for cartwheels.

Because if it came frozen from a box with instructions to nuke it in the microwave, or if you have to sit in your car to snort it as fast and as thoughtlessly as you can, what's the point?  


Gastronomy is not about snobbery.  It's respecting where your food comes from, how it's grown, how much attention it got while it's being prepared. Why?  Because that's what we all deserve.  Because that makes us feel better and live longer.  And food loved like that just simply tastes better.

Labor Day just wrapped up and just like that, summer is (almost) over.
Where everywhere else would see a cooling down, San Francisco is
actually on a somewhat upside-down rebellious inversion mood.

It's my favorite time to visit San Francisco.  Hot...

San Francisco is a favorite in itself anyway and although I don't

when the food and the coffee is serio...
