The Cody’s building on the corner of Telegraph and Haste has been vacant since the bookstore closed its one-time flagship in 2006.
The long foggy days of summer in Berkeley mean summer camp for many kids. In such a food-focused town it’s not surprising to learn that camps designed to encourage edible adventures are popular among the next generation of home cooks and potential professional chefs.
