WI TH FALL WELL under way, we kick off features with another story by food writer and photog- rapher Lynda Balslev.
If you’ve fallen in love with her work and
recipes as we have, you won’t want to miss the
selection of fall party appetizers Balslev has
created — and the step-by-step instructions
that will help you make the treats yourself.
We continue with a look at medical marijuana in Marin. Writer Nate Seltenrich asks
why the medicine is so hard to locate in one of
the Bay Area’s most liberal counties and finds
out what the future holds. Next, we lighten
things up a bit and take a look at second homes.
Writer Ann Wycoff meets some Northern
California residents who have carved out their
own alternate version of paradise.
Finally, if you have plans to attend films
and events at the 37th Mill Valley Film
Festival October 2– 12 or just want to learn
more about Marin’s silver-screen history,
you’ll want to check out our first-ever festival
guide. You’ll find it inserted in the middle of
the magazine — pull it out and take it with you
— and it will be available at the festival.

Up front we’ve got a look at healthy
Halloween treats and a peek at a new book
by rock photographer Bob Minkin. We also
invite you to meet filmmaker John Korty
(yes, the father of the younger John Korty we
introduced you to in July), the founders of
Della Terra Oils and newly elected supervisor
In Destinations, it’s all about food and wine
— a theme hinted at on our cover by Caldwell
Snyder’s own Matt Rogers. We invite you to
check out the abundance of new and exciting
eats, drinks and experiences in wine country
(yes, post-quake Napa is back up and running), introduce you to some new wines to
look out for and invite you along to experience
the food revolution in Baja.
So enjoy the issue, maybe in your favorite
reading chair as the weather begins to call for
more indoor activities. And if you are at the
film festival, say hi; we’ll be out and about at
the numerous events and screenings.
