I am still feeling giddy after the SF Kinfolk dinner. Actually, it was a brunch that was beautiful in every single way. Goods from local San Francisco vendors were set up so each guest could take something home. Fresh flowers were wrapped so each person could take home a bouquet and the Heirloom Cafe was transformed into a small farmers' market. The people I had the chance to talk to, eat brunch with, and toast with completely inspired me. Heirloom Cafe was bustling with creative energy and positivity. I am honored that I was apart of such an intimate and heartfelt event. All week I worked on jam for the event and I was so touched that Nathan and Julie asked me to bring some of my preserves for everyone. I wrapped each of my jams in a burlap like fabric that I found at my favorite fabric store and tied each one with twine. Underneath the fabric, I created a label with one of my favorite John Muir quotes ... that hopefully inspired each person in some way.

Sharing food with another human being is an intimate act that should not be indulged in lightly.
