Monterey Bay Dungeness Crab 2013 Season Opener - Where to find live crabs today!

The Oakland Tribune had an article today regarding the opening day high seas which prevented the smaller boats from going out. The also mentioned a new App called "Fishline" which is a guide to Bay area seafood resources. It includes locations, whats available even phone #'s for the boats. Check it out.

Cremeux Ex Machina - California style gelato at SF Ferry Bldg Farmers Market on Sat - it's Yummy!

I also checked out their website. The machine they're using is Italian (naturally) with some unique features. It also runs a cool $27K and there is only one other on the west coast.

Microwave Corn for Easy Shucking, Zero Silk

This year I've been cooking a lot of corn that I've removed from the cob via an OXO corn stripper http://www.amazon.com/OXO-Good-Grips-.... Sautéed with butter, red and green pepper, cut green beans, whatever you have much more control over just how cooked the corn is, the dish looks great and my wife and I can share one ear without worrying who gets which half of the ear.

French Mandoline.. Bron Coucke Classic, or Bron Coucke Professional?

No gloves, minimal cuts. Just don't drink too much wine during prep!

French Mandoline.. Bron Coucke Classic, or Bron Coucke Professional?

The blade will remain in good shape for many years, depending on how often and what you use it on. We've been thinking of replacing ours for about two years. It's still serviceable as is, new costs about $40.00, and obviously we haven't rushed to by a new blade.

Sushi Sho to Reopen in El Cerrito

We are looking forward to seeing Aki again, but I was hoping that maybe Michiko could could get an assistant or simply rule as hostess. She's earned it.

Sushi Sho to Reopen in El Cerrito

That is such wonderful news! My wife and i have been so missing Aki-san's artistry. The last time we checked the location a few months ago, it looked like nothing was happening and we both had pretty much given up hope of he and his wife's return.
