WITH THE NEW year fully underway, we kick off February by looking at all things edible, starting with a story on the world food
scene in Marin. Writer Amy Sherman intro-
duces us to three restaurateurs who’ve won
loyal followings through tasty cuisine, fresh
ingredients and a spirit of giving back. These
restaurant owners prove it is possible to travel
to another country without ever leaving Marin.
We continue features with the second
part of Nan Foster’s series on the science
of healing naturally. Foster reports that we
really are what we eat and offers informa-
tion, tips and food choices to help you be
your best self. Did you know that the average
American now eats 50 pounds of chemicals
and 150 pounds of sugar annually? Foster
wants to help readers avoid that.
And Kasia Pawlowska runs with that
theme in the field, speaking to people
who forage for sustenance fresh from the
ground: mushroom hunters. Her foray coor-
dinator is a board member of the Sonoma
County Mushroom Association nicknamed
“Mycochef” who has been hunting and
gathering fungi for 40 years.
Finally, we wrap up features with our 
Top Doctors list and two reports by Carrie
Kirby. She describes an innovative program
that makes time in the hospital less scary for
kids and shares strategies to keep your medi-
cal data safe from hackers.
Up front we explore San Francisco’s Jackson
Square and a Mill Valley entrepreneur’s new
take on milk. We talk with this year’s One
Book One Marin author, the new owners of
Point Reyes Books and MarinMOCA executive
director Heidi LaGrasta.
Destinations uncovers the best food,
hotels, shopping and music on Oahu, and in
Journey we accompany Paige Peterson, a
frequent Middle East traveler, to Oman, an
unexpectedly modern and friendly country.
Peterson explains Oman’s immense geopoliti-
cal importance and why you won’t find any
litter on its streets.
We hope your 2017 is shaping up as a year
of exploration, and that this new issue serves
as an inspiring guide.
