New Voices: A Noe Food Blog
Perhaps because Sam has been in the kitchen since she was a little girl, she's "happiest when eating, cooking, talking or thinking about food." She emphasizes seasonal and local, but she's admitted to betraying the Noe Valley Farmer's Market and hoofing it to Alemany for the bargains. Her blog has great recipes (see: Mandarin-Thyme Cocktail and Star Anise Pots de Crème). And it shows you can eat/cook well in a 3rd floor apartment without garden access or a fancy kitchen.
