Thread: Are there any of the oldtimers left?

    Default Are there any of the oldtimers left?

    Hi,

    I havent been here for years.

    On the front page I dont see any of the oldtimers I knew.

    I am back in Davis, CA and its like a trip on memory lane. I remmber
    in 2004 there was almost a cookin in sacramento, but then the host
    fell on her bike. I remember a berkeley trip with chrisd and I visited
    damsel in dis dress in minnesota and saw the SPAM museum (lol).

    So I wonder - is silvia, damsel in dis dress, gregory, blake, chrisd,
    tammy, sheldon the rude, jill the scot, et. al. still around?

    PS: I am atm cooking brussel spouts (boiled slightly, fried in butter
    so the shell is caramelized), home-made guacamole (without
    foodprocessor or blender), and a nice steak from The Co-op. And having
    it with a napa valley Rom Bauer Cab "stags leap district" (the winery
    is beautiful btw).

    Hi Michael! Dams, Gregory, Blake, Chris D, Tammy, Jill and yes, Sheldon
    - posting under the nym of Brooklyn1. You'll recognize his 'style' right
    off.

    I'm a relative newcomer to the group, recent acquisition, er wife, to
    Bob Terwilliger.

    I do love good brussel sprouts. Your version sounds quite similar to
    Thomas Keller's "Bouchon". Love their sprouts -- and the restaurant! And
    that is a fine wine you are having with it. Bob and I are in NorCal so
    we get out that way (and your way) quite often.

    Chris D is in New Mexico, but we hope to have her back "home" in the Bay
    area soon.

    Welcome back!

    Hi Archon,

    Yeah some of us from years ago are still around. Silvia, if you mean the
    one from Spain, doesn't post anymore, but Chris, Jill, Sheldon, Victor,
    Melba (Barb), and a bunch of other old timers still do.

    Glad to see you again. What are you doing in this country? Working here
    now, or school?

    Boli

    That rings a bell... by "new" you mean a few years, dont you?

    Where is that? Where is a good restaurant to get a good steak? (none
    in Davis)

    Going to see whales at Point Reyes much? I went the last two weekends,
    without much luck.
    Might go again this weekend, or go to lake tahoo.

    Nope. Just a couple of years. We celebrate our second anniversary next
    week. Still honeymooning! ;-)

    Bouchon is in Yountville. It's part of that Napa area. The other two
    Thomas Keller Napa restaurants -- The French Laundry, and 'ad hoc' --
    are also in Yountville and within walking distance of each other. Bob
    said his steak and frites at Bouchon were some of the best he's ever
    had. I had lamb that night. We had a really lovely hanger steak at 'ad
    hoc' but they have a fixed price menu that changes daily. It was only by
    chance that we had that served to us since we didn't know what it was
    going to be when we made our reservations. You'd have to check with them
    before a menu is posted to see when they serve that again.

    We were at Point Reyes just a few weeks ago, but for cheese from the
    Cowgirl Creamery and then on to Tomales Bay for fresh oysters. I don't
    think you'll be seeing any whales at Lake Tahoe! ;-) Ski bunnies maybe,
    but no whales.

    Yup. Bob's on their list. We hope to take you there when you get back.
    Manresa's, too. After seeing Kinch beat Flay on Iron Chef America, I'm
    ready for a trip to Los Gatos.

    I have been ready for that one for eons...LOL.

    We will have to make that one an overnighter.... Would be nice to get
    together a bay area group to head to Manresa.

    I remember you. I went through a fairly long period of not
    posting or posting very little but am posting regularly again at
    this point.
