Like its sibling magazine dedicated to coffee, Drift, this issue of Ambrosia explores San Francisco, but expands to include the surrounding Bay Area as it profiles cooks, bakers, winemakers, farmers, other food producers, shops, and restaurants.
Among the articles you'll find here: a survey of the city's chocolate history and its venerable and rising star producers; an exploration of the microclimates that affect the region's famous sourdough bread; an interview with chef Joshua Skennes of Saison; a profile of a West Oakland tofu factory whose reach is now nationwide; a tribute to women leading some of the area's finest restaurants; and a history of the fortune cookie, believed to have originated in San Francisco at the hands of a Japanese immigrant.
