I was also intrigued! When I met Peggy Sweeney McDonald, creator of “Meanwhile, Back at Cafe Du Monde…,” she described her show as follows:
“It’s like the Vagina Monologues of FOOD!”
Right away, I thought, “Wow. That’s sounds interesting – in more ways than one.” Then two very exciting things happened. 1) She told me the San Francisco premiere was in March and 2) She asked me if I wanted to join the list of “headliners!” The excitement of telling a childhood story about FOOD pushed out any nervous voices saying, “uh…this is at the Rrazz Room! uh, you’re not an actor or a stand up comic…uh….SHHHHHH!”
I’m doing it! Come see me and others, including comedian, Michael Capozzola…if you dare (or if you just love good stories about food). Mine will be about my 5 moms and coffee!

Chef Russell Jackson, Lafitte
Studio Gourmet is quickly becoming the hot foodie ticket in town. Founder and host, Brad Lev, takes us into an intimate space with some of the best chefs in San Francisco. Next up is “bad boy” Chef Russell Jackson from Lafitte on Sunday, Feb 20, 2011 at Horatius in Potrero Hill. If you love the San Francisco food scene, then you know Russell Jackson (or at least you might think you do). Pirate chef, notorious, Zeus of the underground dining scene? Perhaps?!
I was very glad to attend the inaugural event featuring the very talented and charming, Chef Martin Brock of Gary Danko (Chef de Cuisine). I’m not sure what I liked more: hearing about him growing up on a farm in Germany; when he received “the call” from Gary Danko himself; or about life as a newlywed. The conversation was great and the food was amazing! Yes, you get food :0).

I’m sure Jackson’s interview will be awesome. For more info, visit:
As a coffee lover, there’s nothing like opening a bag of amazing whole beans and taking a long, deep breath! That being said, I was so happy to stumble upon Marley Coffee. My husband is a huge reggae fan, so of course, Bob Marley is king. How do you combine his love of reggae and my obsession with good coffee? Marley Coffee. Yes, this is the real deal, founded by Bob Marley’s son, Rohan.
Artisan roasted, Marley Coffee is organic and sustainably grown. So far, ONE LOVE, is my favorite, but I have a feeling BUFFALO SOLDIER is going to win me over… “roasted sweet, this earthy blend is sultry, smoky and deliciously smooth. The dark chocolate and berry undertones leave a rich, lingering finish.”
Life is good.
