San Francisco

Best. Burger. Ever.

Recently I did a chef's take on a classic, the burger. Every chef has his or her way of making it their own, from the type of grind on the meat, to the toppings.  I worked with San Francisco chef Daniel Brooks to come up with the Best. Burger. Ever

The breakdown:

  • Brioche Bun
  • 80/20 ground chuck
  • homemade mayo
  • homemade steaksauce
  • white onion & iceberg lettuce
  • aged cheddar
  • fried egg

Fishing for Local Fare

It’s amazing to me how much our lives revolve around food. From holidays and vacations to parties and conversation, food has a way of captivating us. It’s unmistakably a part of our culture. While the trends may change from week to week, there remains a constant — the people who make our meals possible. They are the hands that touch our food, and in doing so, touch our lives. This collection of photographs tells that story. John Mellor and company headed out twenty miles off the coast of San Francisco, hoping for a good catch. They dedicated countless hours to the simple notion of bringing fresh, local fare to Bay Area tables.
