Hot off the pixels, the San Francisco Chronicle introduces the new Food Craft Institute (FCI), based in Oakland’s Jack London Square from the folks who brought us the Eat Real festival.

You can learn from the likes of Dafna Kory, who is taking her jam business – kicked off at the local forage sf underground markets – to the next level, thanks to Kickstarter. Chip in and get some of her popular preserves. Hope to see you at the FCI!
Or think really big about how you might start a unionized berry farm with an honor system farm stand like Swanton Berry Farm.
