Check out my new blog: East Bay Ethnic Eats

East Bay Ethnic Eats – seeking undiscovered culinary treasures in our Bay Area Backyard

Fresh filo makes a world of difference

I am thrilled to live in The East Bay of Northern California, a culinary cultural wonderland. Eating, cooking and learning about the foods of different cultures  opens up a small window into a deeper understanding of others and ultimately ourselves. As a food writer for local magazines, I have challenged myself to ferret out traditional breads that span the globe, authentic ethnic grocery stores, and international breakfast spots that offer a variety of ways to start the day.

My new blog is a forum for exploration. Join me as I visit local bakers and watch them create their regional specialties, interview food artisans, uncover captivating ethnic restaurants and go in search of international ingredients and dishes from all over the globe.

I share with readers the only place to buy freshly made filo dough, traditional seedy German breads, and a restaurant with two dozen varieties of jook / congee. Join me on a sake tasting or a visit to the Afghan restaurants of Fremont’s Little Kabul. I track down the best fish taco, a free French pastry class and places to purchase bento box paraphernalia.
