Meet me at the Fall Harvest Festival

This Saturday I will once again be helping out my friend Alison who makes the much loved McQuade's Chutney at Cheese Plus here on Russian Hill.

In addition to trying Alison's chutney you can also sample the wares of these fine vendors:

Sausages and salami from Fra'Mani
Nut oils from J. LeBlanc
Fabrique Délices creamy pates and saucisson
Marin French Cheese Company Voted Best American Cheese
LaLoo's Goats Milk Ice Cream
Apollo Organic Olive Oils Voted Top 10 Olive Oil of the World
Chuck Siegel’s handcrafted Charles Chocolates
Jams and confections from CMB Sweets Best of the West

Also Janet Fletcher will be hand from 1 - 3 pm signing copies her new book Wine & Cheese. Ms. Fletcher is a James Beard award-winning cookbook author and also writes the cheese column in the San Francisco Chronicle.

As long as your are in the neighborhood check out some of favorite places like Nick's Crispy Tacos, The Candy Store, and three great wine shops William Cross Wine Merchant, The Jug Shop which has one of the best selections of Australian wines and Biondivino which specializes in Italian wines but also has some other goodies like chocolate.
