Happy Holidays

A bit late, but Happy Holidays!

Wishing everyone a safe and happy holiday season.

p.s. I moved at the end of the summer; sorry for not letting people know. I plan to open a Facebook account *gasp* in order to try to keep in better contact with people.

p.p.s. I just had the most fantastic evening at The Dining Room at the Ritz-Carlton in San Francisco. I'll post pictures later. I have to say that my friend's red wine was marvelous and I don't even like wine. One of my favorites was the caviar and poached quail egg appetizer. The fragrance of the trapped wood smoke (hickory?!?) was delicious and satisfying in and of itself. Who knew a scent could be so filling? But the caviar was savory and smoky and well balanced by the mild poached egg. The sommeliers were charming too. Exquisite food and fantastic service.

Food blogs

Some interesting blogs I've run across lately:

* Kuidaore which roughly translates as "eat till you drop," which is so clever a title that I am envious I didn't think of it :P The blogger is based in Singapore and has the most gorgeous food photos. She seems to be quite the chef.

* Mad About Shanghai: Shanghai Food, a self-evidently titled blog.

I leave you with a picture from a recent Indonesian meal in Singapore. The grilled squid was marvelously tender and smoky.
