As some of you might know, we here at the BBCC have been getting some attention lately from a few well known publications. Though the articles focus mostly on the revitalization of the Hayes Valley neighborhood around the kiosk, it's been intersting to see our name in print. Really, nothing quite says "good" coffee like models in clamdiggers and the disembodied head of Nicole Richie.

Blue Bottle Coffee: It's not just coffee, it's a lifestyle.

Fatted Calf 2nd Anniversary!

With several members of the Blue Bottle Coffee Company in attendance last Sunday, Fatted Calf celebrated two years of preparing some of best meat in the Bay Area by making a ton of Paella and getting everyone drunk!

It goes a little something like this:

First, brown your Paella Sausage.

Set the Sausage aside and then fry the rice in the fat before adding a stock of duck and guinea hen with saffron and whole load of aromatics.

Meanwhile roast your peppers. And we all know that you can't just get good peppers anywhere.

Add all this together and make your guests scream in anticipation.
But wait there's more!

Cook up some local shellfish, in this case mussels.

Then mix together so as to be quickly devoured by the hungry masses.

This feast was followed by an eagerly awaited serving of crepinettes.

Thanks and congratulations to Taylor and Toponia for all the great eats. Hopefully they got to enjoy their own party.
