Fudge Fatale

Alexander Black's Fudge Fatale's original product is fudge. Deep, dark, smooth fudge. Packaged in a shiny gold wrapper inside a luxurious velvet case. The shop section of their website and the home page aren't live at the moment, and the chocolate sauce is currently unavailable at I'm afraid this means they're out of business.

Alexander Black, who grew up making fudge at home in Connecticut, made an appearance on the Wayne Brady show, which is on YouTube. The recipe was on his website at the time, and you can see it here. This is a different kind of fudge recipe. It doesn't need to be kneaded on a marble slab, but it doesn't use marshmallow creme, either.

 My piece had a bit of sugar bloom, but that was due to the friend who gave it to me holding on to it for a while until he saw me again.

Lunch with Beth–Young's Cafe

Young's Cafe, on the corner of Kearny and Sacramento, is a favourite of ours.The food is good, and service is fast and friendly. They even cheerfully served us when we got there for a late lunch while the staff was having its meal.

There's a full menu, plus two whiteboards of lunch specials, which are listed in English.

A small cup of soup while you wait is included with all meals. Even if all you order is soup. It was a chilly day, so we ordered soup and and a noodle dish.

Wonderland Chinese Cuisine

Angela, Dan and I headed over to Golden Carousel on Pine Street, only to discover that they're closed on Sunday. So we got in the car and went to Wonderland, on the corner of Haight and Fillmore, which was open, and served us a delicious meal.
