Khao Mun Gai

Ran Kanom seems to me to have a more homey style to their cooking. See what they can do. I really like cross cultural definitions: "First, a definition: Kao mun gai is a Thai chicken and rice dish made with gently poached chicken and schmaltz-slicked, broth infused-rice."

Back to Hakka on a Sunday Afternoon [San Francisco]

Nice to hear that dish has held up over time.
Melanie Wong Feb 23, 2010
Pork bacon with preserved greens – Often I don’t bother eating the preserved greens served with this classic Hakka dish, as too often they’re dried out, too moldy, or overly salty. These had a much better texture and cleaner flavor. The rind and fat of the braised pork melted like jelly. The meat was tender but held together. Since the restaurant is so new, the master sauce is not yet as deep and complex as found at older establishments, but it was well-balanced in sweet and salty elements. The master sauce is good now and surely will be even better in the weeks to come as more orders pass through the kitchen. I liked the presentation with both fresh and preserved greens to lift this rich dish.
I wonder what my son, the bacon baron, could do with this.

Help picking Wine?

The Pennyroyal Cheese Farm to Table program provides some excellent cheeses and just recently a wonderful tasting. We had a morning and afternoon comparison cheese from the same group of goats and sheep, interesting and detectable difference.

Save yourself the trip. The fruit looks right but there is no pit. It looks like this. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Arbutus_...

Yamamomo: "At the center is a single seed, with a diameter about half that of the whole fruit."

Could be. At least it's still edible and seems to thrive on carbon monoxide. And perhaps it is why the consensus is that it is meh.

Drove by and looked. there are many small(about 1/2 inch) yellow fruits on the trees. I assume several more weeks until ripening.

Next to the dumpster near the El Cerrito Trader Joe's. I have picked them there and eaten them with no ill effects. I am not sure of the season and I don't believe there were any there on my last visit. Check it out yourself or I'll post when I see them, if I remember.
