LINDA COSGROVE

Linda Cosgrove arrived in San Francisco in 1976 after her university studies. She is surrounded by her important collection of rare European and Latin American artifacts – artifacts that often appear in her paintings. Her surrealist works in oil are acclaimed for reviving the medieval practice of oil-on-copper, and create a synthesis of Renaissance-inspired pieces with a strong hint of dark humor. The further one ventures into her work, the more visible is the differentiation.

RICOTTA GNUDI WITH POMODORO SAUCE

These little guys are somewhat like gnocchi, but without the potato flour and (failed) attempts at piping them out of a bag. In Italian, gnudi means “naked”, so you can think of them like the filling of a ravioli, but without the pasta wrapper.

THE PERFECT SOUNDTRACK FOR A SUMMER DINNER PARTY

Temperatures might be falling and the daylight hours dwindling, but summer doesn’t officially come to a close until Sept. 23; consider it a bonus month (or three weeks) to throw a small dinner party and share new, and old, music with friends. A good soundtrack to the night can inspire discussion, pad out quieter moments and bring people to an impromptu dance floor.
