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.

Have you tasted the berbere? That seems like a tremendous amount.

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.

Where to find aleppo pepper?

It depends on how much you want. I have seen it at the Pasta Shop on 4th St. in Berkeley Whole Spice brand. Small spice size jar.

Thinking of Leaving SF for Berkeley or Oakland. Crazy?

I really wish this was a separate or different post that wasn't over 200 posts long.

Top 10 underrated red varieties

I was given a bottle of Kindzmarauli by a Russian friend. He did say that there were better Georgian wines but not always available. The others on the list are somewhat available. I've had Pineau d'Aunis, most Etna Rosso is Nerello Mascalese, Trousseau is pretty available in SFBA from local wine makers.

Waitress at Elmwood Cafe Berkeley makes racist assumption

People don't get bags here. You can get one if you pay $0.10.

Dungeness Crab Prices 2014/2015 Season

I bought 2 large live crabs for 7.99/lb from Monterey Fish on Saturday. Frozen seems odd.

Actually, there are some August days in the SFBay area when a braised lamb shank would be fantastic.
