I was lucky enough to spend last weekend with my family touring around San Francisco. We had a wonderful time riding bikes in the sunshine on Angel Island, drinking some microbrews (guess where?) and eating up a storm. It was great to have all of us together on such a beautiful weekend!
There’s no doubt that this summer will look unlike any other that we have experienced before. Summer camps, vacations, and hitting the town are a thing of the past as we now must learn how to navigate social distancing during a season that is historically spent in the company of others. If you’ve got annual summer traditions or had previously planned trips, there are still unique ways to enjoy this season and recreate those memories closer to home.
The microplane- a zester, grater, shredder, whatever you prefer to call it, is perhaps one of the handiest tools for the kitchen. Its uses extend far beyond that of a traditional shredder or zester because it creates soft and fluffy pillows of cheese, citrus rinds, chocolate, and so much more.
