Eye Candy: Greenhouse Gallery

Michael Harlan Turkell Our next exhibit in the Greenhouse Gallery opens today, featuring the candid photography of Michael Harlan Turkell. Once an aspiring chef, Turkell now documents the choreography of restaurant kitchens, highlighting the fascinating coexistence of order and chaos that often remains out of the diner's view. His award-winning photography has appeared in Saveur, Edible Brooklyn, Edible Manhattan, and New York magazine, among others. He has also photographed a number of dinners at the Beard House (click here and here to see some of his work for us). Turkell's images will be on view through the end of October.

Eye Candy: Beard House

Squab When Jim Foss came to the Beard House last week, he prepared a squab dish that brimmed with full Southern flavor. The bird was barbecued in Cheerwine, a cherry-flavored soda that's popular in the Southeast, then placed upon a bed of chicken liver and carrot salad and topped with a cornmeal-crusted catfish hush puppy.

Field Trip: Food, Wine, and Music at San Francisco’s Outside Lands

fatted calf The weather defied everyone’s expectations—80-degree days are a real rarity in San Francisco. Perhaps that’s what had everyone in such high spirits at Outside Lands. Of course, it could also have been the amazing music, great food, and stellar wines. Music might have been the main draw, but we were content to spend our Festival days at the Outside Lands wine tent, sampling California wines and pairing them with some of the great food offerings (think Cowgirl Creamery’s Mt. Tam, Hog Island oysters barbecued or on the half shell, and Fatted Calf sausage sandwiches). The dish that had ev
