WE KICK OFF features this month with a story about holiday entertaining — but his isn’t just any ordinary get-together. Writer Laura
Hilgers takes you inside chef Todd Shoberg’s
launch party last year for his famed restaurant
Molina. In attendance were chefs galore and
the local producers who provide the goods that
graced the table. We also include a link to the
recipes you see in the story.
We continue with a piece by architectural
historian Mark Anthony Wilson that reveals
new information about the controversy surrounding the building of the Marin County
Civic Center. The beautiful and iconic Frank
Lloyd Wright–designed structure you see
today has a backstory of personal and political attacks as well as infighting that almost
derailed the entire project. Luckily for Marin,
the county’s first female supervisor was there
to keep things on track.
Wrapping up features are stories about
iPhone photography and a special section about
the law in Marin. First, San Rafael’s Jerry
Downs shares some of his best mobile phone
photography and explains how the shots came
you inside chef
last year for his
to be. Next up, Carrie Kirby has stories on teens
and the law, Marin’s biggest criminal cases and
how to keep those attorney bills low.
Up front, we offer a fun holiday drink recipe,
launch our new books column and introduce
you to comedian Mark Pitta, two Inverness fermenters and poet Jane Hirshfield.
In Destinations we invite you to escape
the winter blues on one of seven hot beaches
or hop on a plane for an epicurean adventure
in Southwestern France. Either way, you
can’t go wrong.
Then again, hanging out in Marin isn’t a
bad way to spend the winter either — and the
good news is we’ve got plenty of great ideas for
fun close to home.
