[MUSIC] Hi, I'm Traci Des Jardins of Jardiniere restaurant in San Francisco, California. The food at Jardiniere is very seasonally influenced We have so many wonderful products and farms that are so close to the city. You can't help, as a chef, to be influenced but that. San Francisco's a very European feeling city. Sitting here on this great bay, the air quality Great. It's just a beautiful little city. Coco500 is a great South Market restaurant. Really delicious, approachable food. It's one of my favorite places. Crissy Field is a must destination if you're San Francisco for a few days. Just beautiful place to take a walk. It's a unique view of the Golden Gate Bridge as you approach it It's just so stunning, visually. The Mission in San Francisco is one of my favorite destinations. There are some incredible markets there, La Palma Mexica-tessen is one of my favorite ones to buy fresh hand made tortillas, prepared salsas, chips, Mexican cheeses, there's all kinds of great stuff. For a culinary destination, it cannot be beat. San Francisco is an incredible place to be a chef and cooking, and it's a wonderful city to visit.
