It’s hard to believe that SF Chefs, that deletable extravaganza that celebrates the Bay Area’s singular food scene, is five years old already.

Last Friday was the official start of the weekend-long affair, when the mega tasting tent on Union Square in San Francisco opened with a dramatic cake-cutting with chefs Tyler Florence of Wayfare Tavern and Dominique Crenn of Atelier Crenn joining Mayor Ed Lee in the honors.

Enjoy some scenes from the first day:

Take one guess as to which chef this food station belonged to.

New Sandwiches Galore At Oakville Grocery

Oakville Grocery, the 130-year-old landmark Wine Country gourmet store has rolled out a delicious new sandwich menu created by Chef Jason Rose.

Look for the Oakville Muffaletta ($13), a ciabatta piled with Toscano salami, sopressata, ham, provolone, and pickled pepper relish; the Cuban ($13), a torpedo roll stuffed with slow-cooked pork shoulder, ham, yellow mustard, pickles, Swiss cheese, and aioli; and the Quinoa Falafel ($9.50), spinach lavash rolled up around spicy hummus, harissa Greek yogurt, grilled eggplant, cucumber and pickles.

Each day, a special tartine ($10) also is featured, along with a waffle sandwich ($7) of ham and Swiss cheese.

With two locations — the original in Oakville and the other in Healdsburg — it’s a perfect place to pick up a quick lunch after cycling or touring wineries.
