Food writer Sarah Henry reviews the year in all things edible in Berkeley.
LOCAL BREWS Peet’s Coffee & Tea has introduced two very Berkeley-centric blends: Café Solano and Café Domingo, in honor of two of their Berkeley stores on Domingo Avenue and Solano Avenue. Café Domingo is described as a smooth, balanced and medium-bodied Latin American blend “with hints of toffee sweetness and a clean, crisp finish”. While Café Solano is “a lively and aromatic medium roast coffee. Perfectly rounded with floral notes and a subtle fruit essence”. Peet’s was, of course, founded in Berkeley in 1966, and is about to open its 9th store in the city on the corner of College Avenue and Alcatraz.
The sun blessed Berkeley gardeners with heaps of homegrown produce this summer. To address burgeoning baskets, Councilmember Max Anderson announced the addition of the the Lorin Station Crop Swap this Sunday, August 21 at 1 p.m.
It’s that time of year when the abundance from a backyard vegetable garden can be a tad prolific. How many zucchini squash can one family eat? Or perhaps your produce problem comes from human error: you simply planted way too many onions and not enough greens.
