Nosh Box: Soup’s On

Neck and neck with February for the year’s coldest month, January better personifies cold and damp. There’s one food that satisfies and warms the body and soul in the heart of East Bay’s winter. A cup or bowl of steaming soup is like a soft woolen sweater for your innards—and your outlook.

Nosh Box: Cheese to Please

September shows a split personality. The month blesses us with most of summer’s bounty, yet holds equal promise of fall comfort food. Typically regarded as the harvest month, September also is time to select seasonal cheeses, especially those made from goat’s milk. Cheese isn’t seasonal the same way that stone fruit or table grapes are. And globally, cheese isn’t seasonal at all. Seasonality applies in the realm of small-scale cheese-makers, like Pacific Cheese in Hayward, or Belfiore Cheese in Berkeley.
