Risotto with Fresh Chanterelle Mushrooms and Shaved Black Truffle

Thursday, October 15, 2009


After I attended BlogHer Food, I had an extra day in San Francisco to hang around and do some more sightseeing before my flight home.   The first place I hit was The Ferry Building Marketplace.  It isn’t a very large market, but what it lacks in quantity, it more than makes up for in quality.

The San Francisco Ferry Building is a terminal for ferries that travel across the San Francisco Bay.   The present structure opened in 1898, replacing its wooden predecessor, and survived both the 1906 and the 1989 earthquakes.

On the grounds outside the building there was what appeared to be a farmer’s market/craft fair going on.  I wandered around a little, picked up a couple of t-shirts and moved on.  Inside the building was where the real action was!  There was a host of specialty and artisan food shops and restaurants.  I was in heaven!  It was a good thing I packed one of my big old Envirosax bags in my purse that morning! read more >>
