The Ferry Building and Farmers Market are the closest thing to crack while still being legal that I can imagine. I start shaking as soon as I swing open the huge glass doors and stare ahead at the culinary nirvana I've just entered. Whenever I come to town, the Ferry Building is at the top of the list, as it is when I have to cook a special dinner and last week was just such an occasion. Our friend Patty reached that fabulous milestone of cinquante (fifty - sounds much prettier in French) celebrating with a sixty mile bike ride and her youngest daughter was heading off to college the next day so celebrate we did with a Ferry Building dinner from appetizer to dessert.
