san francisco

The last week of January I took a long overdue trip to San Francisco to visit friends, eat delicious food and explore the city. It couldn’t have been better.

As most of you remember from my days in Ithaca and my Instagram, I just love a good farmers market. I spent a long time walking around at the Ferry Plaza Farmers Market and couldn’t get enough! The highlight of the day was getting to visit Three Babes Bakeshop. I donated to their Kickstarter campaign a few years ago and have been proudly following along with their success, and was so thankful to finally have a chance to try their UNBELIEVABLE pie. She even had me working the booth for a little bit! Such a great time.

Another highlight was visiting The Mill, a fantastic bread store near Alamo Square. As a novice bread baker, I bow down to Josey and hope to make bread half as good one day. I stuffed my suitcase with two loaves to bring home and have been enjoying the toast for breakfast. SO GOOD.

I happened to be in town during the Superbowl, so I helped to prepare a delicious Superbowl feast at my friend’s house!

Another noteworthy stop on the trip was to B Patisserie for a kouign amann. I may have gained five pounds eating it, but it was totally worth every calorie.

Last but not least, a shout out to my friends who made sure I had an amazing time. Couldn’t have asked for better hosts!
