Enoteca La Storia was honored with another article recently – this one by award-winning foodie Carolyn Jung – titled “A Fine Time at Enoteca La Storia.” This is a particularly cool honor, because for 11 years, Carolyn was the food writer/editor for the San Jose Mercury News. She also was a contributor to the “Good Living” section of Gourmet magazine, and to the book, “The Slow Food Guide to San Francisco and the Bay Area.” She is the recipient of a James Beard Award for feature writing about restaurants/chefs, an award from the American Association of Sunday and Features Editors, and numerous first-place honors from the Association of Food Journalists, and the Peninsula Press Club. She has judged a multitude of food contests, including the biggie of them all, the Pillsbury Bake-Off.
Carolyn is also an all-around really cool lady, and is otherwise known as “FoodGal.”
In the article Carolyn likens our little place to “Cheers,” a place with habitual, regular customers that we all know on a first-name basis (you know who you are!)
But more importantly, her piece is a bit humbling. See, we love what we do – and to see so many other people (apparently) love it, and then write about it – is a testament to this little shop we’ve built. And don’t even get us started on those gorgeous photographs she took….
So a sincere ‘thank you’ to FoodGal (we highly recommend you follow her blog) – and to all of our wonderful friends and patrons who continue to help put us on the map.
As I’ve said before (and with no disparagement to San Francisco) not all of the good eats and drinks lie to the north. There is a lot to be said about the food and wine scene in the South Bay. And we’re ecstatic when some does precisely that….
