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.

PASCAL PIERME

Pierme’s pieces reflect a dialogue and love of his desert city that involves simplicity, nature, architecture and organic elements. “Coming here 20 years ago with expectations that I had to let go very early, I understood the humility and respect I owe to this land, an essential capital of the West.”

THIS 20 MINUTE SHRIMP STIR-FRY IS EVEN MORE ADDICTIVE THAN DORITOS

So if it’s not Frito-Lay mad science that’s responsible for the hit-every-taste bud-you’ve-got thing, then what is? It’s a marinade that’s a mix of sugar, fish sauce, garlic, and chiles, a super concentrated paste that delivers flavor in record time (that record is 10 minutes).

SCOTCHY BOULEVARDIERS FOR A CROWD

Meet the Negroni’s wintery cousin, made with whiskey instead of gin. Rye whiskey is peppery and dry; you can also make this classic cocktail with bourbon for a vanilla-tinged sweetness. We like it with a mix of rye and scotch, which makes it a little more savory.

THE SECOND AND THIRD LIVES OF YOUR STUFF

It’s the season of gift giving, and while some gifts may become cherished heirlooms, others will likely wind up at Goodwill not long after the holidays.  Then what happens to them, and all the other stuff we accumulate?That is the topic of Adam Minter’s new book: “Second Hand: Travels in the New Global Garage Sale.”
