Cheese Plus joins the Bondolio family.
At the corner of Polk and Pacific in San Francisco, you can not only pick up a bottle of Bondolio but you can enjoy a fantastic grilled cheese sandwich.
Leading up to the Winter Fancy Food meeting at the Moscone was the Good Food Mercantile held at Fort Mason along the San Francisco Bay shoreline next to the marina.
Bondolio was present with a booth and along with Karen was Chance Grossman, a very talented freshly minted college grad and pilot.
Unlike the Fancy Food meeting which is open to the public, the Good Food Mercantile is billed as an un-trade show for tasty, authentic, responsible food. It is a one-day, intimate gathering of like-minded food crafters and retailers with a focus on building commerce and community. The goal of the gathering is to honor people who make food that is delicious, respectful of the environment, and connected to communities and cultural traditions.
It was a busy meeting for sure. And the highlight for Bondolio was a visit to the booth by an idol of Karen, Alice Waters.
December 13 is just around the corner – plan part of your day at Bondolio and enjoy the Bondolio pizza oven which will be fired up the day before to be ready to toss out pizzas faster than you can say mozzarella; nuovo olio will be drizzling on just about everything; new balsamic treats will be available for tasting; and the mill will be open for touring – promising a fun time at the farm for one and all.
Here’s a snap of Karen, the special delivery courier of Bondolio Nuovo to Norma Bond the host of the thanksgiving dinner for the Bond family. Norma is a retired school teacher living in the woods of the Sierra Nevada just outside the Lassen National Park. Norma is 93 years young, a retired school teacher, a licensed private pilot and Malcolm’s mom.
