Chocoholic and Alcoholic 

Wednesday, Sep 10 2008
The popularity of premium chocolate has skyrocketed in recent years, as has a vocabulary to describe it that rivals the wine lexicon. At “Chocolate Seizure,” local food channel TasteTV -- organizers of the annual Chocolate Salon -- team up with S.F. winemakers Crushpad and the public to determine the flavor profile of what they say is the first red wine specifically designed to consume with chocolate. The admission price includes a reserved bottle of the eventual finished wine (to be called Domaine de Taste Amerique: Chocolate Seizure 2008), and copious amounts of cacao samples courtesy of local confectioners like Oakland’s Coco Delice, which makes sublime sparkling red wine truffles, and Cosmic Chocolate, a young company also from Oakland which features cocktail combos like its whimsical Obama, squares of dark chocolate filled with espresso-cognac ganache.

  • San Francisco Street Food Festival 2014
    The San Francisco Street Food Festival was another success this year. Dozens of vendors with original, unheard-of creations, such as deep fried mac and cheese on a stick, black pea paste pancakes, and Korean quesadillas. Then there was the comfort foods we've grown accustomed to, like creme bruleé, shrimp rolls, and pound cake. Photographs by Mabel Jimenez.
