Every winter for the last 30 years, San Francisco has hosted the biggest convention of gourmet-food manufacturers in the world. It’s called The Fancy Food Show. From giant world brands with 3000-square-foot footprints, to tiny cottage-industry food enthusiasts who will crowd into a 10×10 space with others, just to start somewhere. Javits Center in NYC hosts the summer show. Both shows are immense and well-attended.

I’ve been living in San Francisco for over four decades. In the last decade and a half the food scene here has turned The City into a Worldwide Culinary Destination.

Much as I tried to pull together at least a preview of a project that I’m working on for this column today, it is not to be; there is much back burner simmering to be done before that column is ready to be savoured.

But speaking of food …  here’s something I wrote in the Spring of 2013, and have revised and updated for your dining and dancing entertainment. Bon Appetit!

My CMW wrap up will be posted on Friday. In the meantime, I want to share with you the joys of my life, some interesting music, some snapshots from the far distant past, and a few bon mots culled from endless research and the Facebook Newsfeed.
