In the financial district, downtown San Francisco, you’ll find this gourmet grocery store. This is really convenient if you work or live in the heart of the city. It’s located on the first floor of the Twitter building.

My daughter Melissa explains how it’s all laid out. In the center, there’s the grocery. The store offers all gourmet items that aren’t readily available in your traditional market. There are a wide variety of wines available as well.

Attached to the grocery store are food and drink bars. You can sit down and have a bite to eat and maybe then do some shopping. On the outer rim of the store are food stalls, similar to a food court, and a market cafe. They still have the original mailboxes from when the building was a department store. Here’s a peek into The Market!

Table Centerpieces For All Occasions

Christmas Centerpiece

Above are a few centerpieces I’ve made, recently and in the past, for the different holiday seasons.

I always need to “Bring It” whenever I’m asked to cater an event. I believe the centerpiece should always be what grabs your attention when entering any room.  At this wedding reception, for friends of mine, the fruit skewers coming out of the pineapples were the show stopper at this event. I like to keep it casual and simple with small votive candles and big platters of finger food. The idea is for everyone to have a great time.

Citrus With Fennel Fronds Centerpiece

Buffet Centerpiece

Mini Mascarpone PastriesMy mini Mascarpone cheese filled pastries with fresh berries and a dusting of powdered sugar. This “Hello Kitty” themed baby shower was a hit with the new mother and her guests.

Next, are some pictures of another event I did. This was a 50th birthday party.

Katie’s husband’s 50th birthday party had to be one he’d never forget. We pulled out all the stops for this one.

My daughter Melissa made her second visit to Craftsman and Wolves in San Francisco. I’d found this unique place while watching Unique Eats on the Food Network. She had a Cava and a Cheesecake Verrine that consisted of Praline, Pomelo, and walnuts in the cheesecake, she absolutely loved it.
