More specifically, Santa Cruz, California. We’re spending the summer in my hometown, it’s such a special place that I wanted to get out of the kitchen and give you a quick tour of this wonderful and whacky beach town that I love so much. Located about 70 miles South of San Francisco it’s a quick car ride to get most anywhere in the bay area.
WOODIES ON THE WHARF
SANTA CRUZ FARMERS MARKET – WEDNESDAYS
City of Santa Cruz, CA
I’ve been a little distracted the past few weeks (ok, a lot), and had every intension to post each week. But between spending time with my family and friends, hitting all my favorite food spots that I dream about while I’m away and just plain having my head in the clouds (maybe it’s the Santa Cruz spell…), I haven’t managed to sit down long enough to put together a post to share with you. I haven’t cooked too much either, but I sure have eaten well. From just picked veggies and street food at our farmers market, which happens to be one of my favorite in the Bay Area (biassed perhaps?), to fish tacos on the wharf, on the Pacific coast highway, on mission street, and a few other places (Ok, so I have a teensy weensy taco obsession and no one does tacos like CA), Hapa Ramen at the San Francisco Ferry Building, a farm to table dinner at Full Belly Farm (which I’ll be posting in the next few weeks), and lunch at Spruce in San Francisco (which blew me away) sorry, no post for that one, you’ll have to take my word for it. I’m completely inspired and ready to get back in the kitchen to create (and recreate) some favorites, new favorites and discoveries. Check back soon. ~K.
