The Klamath Basin Coalition

refers to the Klamath Basin, which encompasses areas in Northern California and Southern Oregon, as the "Western Everglades." The organization's Web site reports that there are

still salmon species exclusive to that river system and details why

energy must be put into restoring the area into a sustainable ecosystem.

We'll get a rare chance to taste salmon from there as Native American Tribes of the Klamath Basin join SalmonAid (the latter's motto: "Restore rivers, recover salmon, rebuild jobs") for a traditional tribal salmon bake at Ocean Beach this Friday, June 19. The festivities start at 6 p.m., and the star of the show -- Yurok fishermen-caught Klamath salmon -- will be served at 6:30.

The free Ocean Beach event is a special kick off to the two-day SalmonAid Festival,

held on June 20-21 from noon to 7 p.m. in Oakland's Jack London Square.

Admission is also free, though there will be a sustainable menu for

purchase, including a Saigon salmon sandwich, a halibut Reuben, and

Mediterranean stuffed sardines. (Thanks to Edible San Francisco for the tip.)

  • 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.
