hello. today I went into Bi Rite (18th st betw guerrero and dolores) and bought their house-smoked salmon. I asked for a taste and was given a generous portion. It was soft, smooth and oily, like the "Novi" of my NY Jewish youth. It made me so happy and then I missed real bagels.
On Saturday I found excellent cherries at TFPFM: from Bossom Bluff Orchards. This was their first week back and next week they will have Apriums! They were $5.50 per pound, .50 less than Lagier.
stonefruit season makes me so happy.
