Try the Mini Food Gal App — For Free
Yes, now here’s your chance to try a mini version of my Food Gal “Ultimate Guide to Bay Area Dining” — for free.
Available at the iTunes store, the free version has 21 recommended restaurants on it. If you like what you see, you can download the complete app with 70 more restaurant write-ups for a mere $1.99. It’s just like trying a cookie sample at the supermarket. With that first bite, you’re sure to enjoy it so much that you’ll want the whole shebang.
The map feature cleverly lets you find my recommended spots closest to you no matter your location in the Bay Area. Also new to the app is the ability to make reservations through OpenTable.
There might be no such thing as a free lunch. But now you can partake of my delicious mini app for free.
Cindy Pawlcyn Celebrates 30 Years
We’re talking cake — a different one featured daily for 30 days, from now through June 15.
The “30 Days of Cake” promotion also non-coincidentally happens to be the same title of her newest cookbook that will publish this fall. Look for everything from chocolate pecan Jack Daniel’s cake to peach melba cake to coconut haupia cake.
