Italian charcuterie, pasta bolognese, and duck in sf

I am a regular user of Fatted Calf and actually used their sugo last night. I doctored it a bit but it really needs some work to call it Bolognese.

I was thinking that was the purpose but rethinking maybe not.

Blue Bottle swallows up Tartine.

Three Africas and Giant Step taste different? Are you just talking beans or drinks as made?

Capp's Corner is closing. [San Francisco]

I could actually afford it,which was unusual. But I had to be careful because I had no id because I didn't drive.

where to get flours for bread baking in East Bay?

I have bought King Arthur's white whole wheat as opposed to whole white wheat at Andronicos.

NYT Mark Bittman finds the Monterey Market. [Berkeley, Ca]

Lincoln peas are like real corn. You have to eat them very soon after picking. They are almost always too starchy when purchased.

Looking for Petit Fours in SF

There used to be a couple in the north bay. Dragonfly Cakes and Divine Delights. This was a long time ago and I have never eaten anything by either.

Looking for Restaurants in Munich, Regensburg and Nuremberg

Reset the search to recency rather than best match and try each city separately.

Georgian wine

If you are looking for them, they seem to be somewhat more available now. Kindzmarauli and Imereti seem to be sometimes available.

Boring I know, but I would go with either a pinot noir or chardonnay.

Pick up and shipping charges

The winery that is now only shipping is $27/case. I didn't check for LA.

Pick up and shipping charges

No, if you make an appointment, which they may charge for now, you can go to the winery and taste. It is not a storefront and at individual appointments you have to key in a number at the gate.

Pick up and shipping charges

I hesitated but decided to order because we like the wines. I actually added on two bottles toward the end and was charged the $15 again. I complained and it was reversed.
Another winery has decided there will be no more pickups. We have always picked up.Adding shipping charges raises the cost of the wine. I realize that people on the other side of the country don;t have that option.
There are a lot of services that handle shipping for the wine country. They are not equal in quality and service. I have had bottles arrive quite warm. The winery replaced them.
