Pizza delivery charge

If you got into an accident delivering Pizza you would have a heck of a time explaining to your insurance co how you were using your privately insured car for commercial purposes. I should have read the posts directly below me.

Turkey Done Temp white vs dark meat?

A trick learned on the naked whiz BBQ site is to put ice packs on the breasts (of the turkey LOL) 20 minutes before you put the bird in the oven. insures even cooking all the way to the end.

La Capra Coffee -- is the 4th Wave upon us? [San Francisco]

What was coined as "third wave" involved more than just how the bean was being roasted.

Nothing new about coffee beans roasted to what's termed 'italian roast". As for 'third wave' the only people who use that term now are the ones who really don't understand what it was in the first place.

Wrecking Ball Coffee (Cow Hollow, San Francisco)

That's weird about the temperature of the espresso. Most espresso blends are brewed between 198*-202*. I can't see how it could have been to hot. Did you say anything?

The best San Francisco sourdough?

I know that all the Lunardis carry Raymonds. Maybe I overstated how many stores it is available. I'm not sure of stores in the city.

Raymonds, available at most of the better local grocery stores is the closest to the what you are looking for.

Does anyone know what happened to a shop (that made chocolates and flourless cakes w/ incredible butter cream), which was called "Cocolat," or something similar to that?

Also on Steiner in the Marina.

South San Fran Dinner Reccs

If Asian is to your liking, San Bruno, and Millbrae is even closer than San Mateo. And rush hour would mean nothing as you don't even have to hit the freeway.

I always stop when the pull starts turning blonde.

Former NYC Mayor Michael Bloomberg donates $85,000 to support Berkeley’s proposed soda tax

Speaking of doughnuts, They may be an endangered species in good old San Francisco. After all, not much nutritional about those little babies. Maybe full service bakeries may be in the cross hairs in the future.

That's all well and good, but just in case, lets raise taxes.. The San Francisco treat.

Where do you come up with .01c? You do know the measure calls for a .02c tax. But hell! That's on;y a silly penny.

And they'll buy their groceries in another county too.

Strawman? Let me spell it out to you. That store didn't lose 50% of their revenue because of lost alcohol sales. The customers who may have wanted to buy a bottle of wine or a six pack of beer shopped elsewhere to buy all their groceries. If a twelve pack of soda costs three dollars more in the city than out side the city limits people will do their shopping where they can save money.

As for this being a 'modest tax increase'. 2.88 on a twelve pack is not what I would call modest.

I guess the grocery stores in SF will be very happy to see their customers shop out of town.

Don't tell me it won't happen, because I saw a major chain store on the peninsula lose 50% of their revenue when they had their liquor license suspended for 45 days.

Preparing for French Laundry! Napa Winery advice!

I wonder how much the "it just wasn't wasn't the wow experience" was because you disregarded all the advise you were given, and over did it before your dinner.

I can't wait for the luxury tax for restaurants. After all, no one has to eat out. Luckily the rest of the country isn't so quick to vote themselves more taxes. But we are so smug. we don't even realize we're screwing ourselves.

Food mythbusters . What's your belief or not ?

The 8 glasses of water a day is the ultimate myth. That figure was originally meant to include the food you eat, which has a large water content. If your pee is yellow , drink more water. If it's clear you've had enough.

A trick to get the breast and the rest of the bird to cook evenly is to put icepacks on both breasts 20 minutes before you start cooking.

A 10 second pull? That is inexcusable. You should have asked for them to remake it.

Chromatic Coffee Co. in Santa Clara

Melanie, Your welcome.I was just commenting on how easy it is ordering beans from their website. Next time i go there in person, I will order a pour over. It's been sooo long since I've had anything other than Chromatic Gamut and linea espresso blend.

You are correct. I will add, ordering beans online is fantastic. Ordered Sunday, got them Tuesday with free priority mail.

The Perils of Coffee Snobbery

If you don't like it, you don't have to drink it. Enjoy your Maxwell House.

Completely agree with the little known Iron @ Steam. Just a beautiful piece of art Oliver is using and he gets the most out of the Chromatic Gamut beans he uses. May be the best shot of espresso in the city.
