MARKET SPOTLIGHT

A sultry, but healthy, gypsy

Danya Mosgofian of San Francisco explains that she named her business to evoke the sense of a “free, untamable spirit.” A lifelong photographer, in 2010 she began studying herbal medicine at Forestville’s California School for Herbal Studies. She identified a need for alcohol-free herbal formulas with more efficacy and strength than what was on offer, and has created a growing range of products. We offer ten of her remedies, including a pain salve and formulas targeted, as their names suggest, at various symptoms: Anti-Viral, Headache Relief, Cramp-Ease, Gentle Sleep, Brain Gain, Second Immunity, Fussy Gut Relief, Nerve Ease and Relax.

Wines for barbecued flavors

Bring on the flavor. Our wine expert, Niesa Granger, has ideas for every summer menu challenge. Chicken? Try the 2012 Anderson Valley Gewürztraminer from Phillips Hill ($19.99). “It pops with rose, passion fruit and lychee flavors.” Ribs? The 2012 Piedrasassi Syrah from Santa Barbara County ($36.99) is “destined to be the wine they ask for.” Only 400 cases were made, and Niesa has pretty much all that’s left to buy. For even harder-to-pair foods – say, blue cheese, or a sweet’n’spicy sauce – Niesa suggests Beauregard’s 2013 Pinot Gris “Orange Wine” ($22.99) from Santa Cruz. “It has textures and tannins like a red wine,” she says, owing to the process used to ferment white grapes in their skins.

Lauren Miller


Many of our colleagues are migrants from points East, but few have had as long a journey to Sausalito as the one Lauren made before joining the Driver’s team last year. A New Jersey native and 2011 graduate of Colgate in upstate New York, Lauren headed to Sierra Leone in the Peace Corps after graduation, and then returned Stateside to work on an unusual urban farm in Tampa, Florida, before heading to California. We’re all glad she got here. Read the whole story.

DRIVER’S DISCOVERIES: RELISH ON THE SIDE

WILD WEST’S EL CURTIDO

Taco-style fermented relish from these kraut specialists in Point Reyes Station. There’s talk of a cult around this one!

FARMHOUSE CULTURE

Raw, organic krauts and kimchi in handy, vented resealable packs. Try classic, ginger beet or their well-regarded kimchi.

ELLEN’S KIMCHI

Seoul-born Ellen White moved to California but kept a home-grown appreciation for the “superfood” power of well-made kimchi.

OZUKÉ KRAUT

Try the lively citrus-ginger blend from a self-described pair of “prolific probiotic pickleteers.” The yin of ginger, the yang of kraut!

MOTHER IN LAW’S

Korean daughters usually learn to make kimchi from their mother-in-law. This recipe hails from a mom’s restaurant in Southern California.

SINTO GOURMET

Another favorite, this one from a San Francisco chef who says she learned from a grandmother born in what’s now North Korea.
