We did it again! Read our recap on our second edition of Rice Paper Scissors. Food porn included.

It’s only been three weeks since we got back form Europe and we’ve been busy getting back to our San Francisco selves: late night drinks and mashed potatoes at The Phoenix, settling into a new apartment, helping out at two Wild Kitchen dinners, and selling Vietnamese crepes at back-to-back Underground Markets in SF and the … Read more
