MY OTHER GREAT LOVE is reading/books/words.  A friend, Celia Sack, recently opened my fantasy food bookstore in an old butcher shop space on Cesar Chavez Street, Omnivore: Books on Food. She's an experienced antiquarian book dealer who also happens to adore food, and combines those loves in this sweet project. She sources old books and stocks new. She puts together readings at the shop. All of it is beautiful, constantly evolving and expanding. And, although I often link books to Amazon for their easily accessible photos and info., try to buy at independent places like Celia's if possible. Do support intelligence and check it out.
