View From Marin
A FEBRUARY HIGHLIGHT IS back as we present our third annual Marin Tastemakers feature. This year we asked you what your favorite restaurants were
and then sent Debra Tarrant out to photograph the beautiful food at 30 eateries while
our own Mimi Towle contacted the chefs and
owners and asked about top sellers and go-to
spots for when these busy culinary stars are
off work. It’s enough to make anybody hungry.

A BIG SUPPER
The hardest part of capturing our version of Leonardo
da Vinci’s masterpiece The Last Supper for our
Tastemakers article was getting 16 busy chefs in the
same place at the same time for photographer Lori
Eanes — but we managed to pull it off, as you can
see here. Boudin Bakery even provided the bread.

Levalley, Jared Rogers, Nicolas Abrams, Mike Ward,
Norman Louie, Peter Schumacher, Alfredo Ancona,
Todd Shoberg and Sebastian Lowrey.
Next up, we sent writer Carrie Kirby and
photographer Joseph Schell to learn about
Marin’s growing biotech landscape. Kirby finds
that the industry brings in billions of dollars a
year and creates jobs, all while producing life-changing medicines and procedures.
February is also the time we feature our
annual  Top Doctors list. You’ll find
approximately 600 of the area’s best physicians
as well as stories on the potential dangers of
artificial sweeteners and high-intensity workouts and information on the Ebola virus.
Up front we’ve got a look at Civic Center
weddings and information on how you can get
involved in Super Bowl 50, and we introduce
you to Jan Wahl and her hats, author Kelly
Corrigan, swim instructor Cheryll Boissevain,
designer Ashley Morgan and YMCA chief
In Destinations we’ve got the lowdown on
great family activities on Oahu — even the
chance to volunteer as a group if you are so
inclined — and we follow Matthew Poole on his
quest so see the wild animals of South Africa.
With 2015 well under way and winter break
in the rearview mirror, we know you are busy
— but we encourage you to take some time to
explore the wonders of Marin, starting with
all those great restaurants.
