  • Kombucha home brew: Crawling with fermented goodness.
DIYers with a hippie-granola bent may be interested in tomorrow's Kombucha! class, presented by Urban Kitchen SF and held at the Women's Building (3543 18th St. at Guerrero). Kombucha is a fermented quote-unquote wellness beverage thought to contain helpful active enzymes and other good-for-you nutrients. Sweetened tea or tisane is brewed, using a S.C.O.B.Y., the symbiotic culture of bacteria and yeast that transforms the tea into a bevy allegedly chock-full of goodness.

This blogger has sampled several types of commercial kombucha drinks, and has usually found them to be a refreshing, slightly herbaceous, and tangy alternative to, say, a normal cuppa joe. We feel healthier already! The Kombucha! class begins at 7 p.m. and costs $45, which includes take-home supplies (the aforementioned S.C.O.B.Y.). Sliding scale pricing is available, and spots are on a first come, first served basis. For information or to register, email

Then there was the comfort foods we've grown accustomed to, like creme bruleé, shrimp rolls, and pound cake. Photographs by Mabel Jimenez.
