A San Francisco Treat (Not Rice A Roni)

I mentioned to my friend Erica that I would be travelling out to San Francisco this fall. Erica lives in SF and said, "I'm gonna send you something to get you excited for your trip out here." A few days later the FedEx man arrived with a rather large box. Inside was this <-. Unbelievable. I'm am getting completely inspired by this bag of goodies and we are working our way through tasting everything. For the curious, the box contained the following:
  • A really awesomely sized bag perfect for a trip to the farmers market
  • Maps of San Francisco and Napa Sonoma (really nice laminated maps)
  • San Francisco Magazine (saving it for the plane ride to San Antonio)
  • Susan Rice truffled popcorn
  • Far West Fungi Dried Wild Mushrooms
  • Humphry Slocumbe Duck Fat Pecan Pie
  • Humphry Slocumbe Pork Fat Caramels
  • Eatwell Farms Thyme Salt
  • Stonehouse California Olive Oil
  • Recchiuti Burnt Caramel Sauce
  • Recchiuti S'Mores (those are long gone)
  • Casina Rossa Truffle & Salt, Porcini & Salt, and Fennel & Salt
  • Marshall's Farm Marin Wildflower Honey
  • Humphry Slocumbe Bacon Peanut Brittle
  • Gianna's Chick Cookies
  • Botanical Interests seeds for Delicata Squash, Lemon Cucumber, and Catnip
  • Boccalone Orange and Wild Fennel Salame
  • Range Brothers Smoked and Seasoned Pork Strips (think pork candy)
  • Sweet and Spicy Beef Jerky (I don't have the brand on that cause it all got eaten and the bag got thrown away)

An incredible gift. I felt like a kid at Christmas opening everything up. Thanks, Erica!

  2. When you go to SF, you have to go to Pacific Catch and get the crispy oysters! They're to.die.for. They have several locations:
