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.

where to find yamamomo/yangmei/waxberry/yumberry/red bayberry

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.

East Bay Wine Shop with Wines that will age

I'll have to ask my friend from Socal who used to buy from them and would drive up to pick up his wine. I don't have any other contact with them but was only correcting Robert Lauriston's post which suggested Grand Cru which I thought was a typo but was afraid to point out for fear i would be accused of flaming or defaming Mr. L. I see he corrected it.

It would seem that with an 18 year wait for the opening a few months delay for delivery shouldn't be a big problem.

Smokestack BBQ [San Francisco]

My BBQ Judge Class instructor mentioned making brisket with Kobe Beef and the special care needed because of the high fat content and the possibility of rendering it all out and leaving a dry expensive piece of meat.
