IT’S JULY AND summer is in full swing. What better way to celebrate the season than with fresh and delicious food? We kick off features with a story that does just that. Writer, photographer and cook Lynda Balslev grabbed local farmers’ market ingredients and reimagined six dishes popular at local restaurants. She includes the recipes so you can make these meals at home.
Next up we take to the water for two dramatic and very different stories. First, Kimball Livingston examines the bay’s floating treasures — five local yachts that have withstood the test of time and have the stories to prove it. Second, Calin Van Paris revisits the fight to save the Drakes Bay Oyster Company. Much has changed since we wrote about this land use issue in 2008, with the case likely heading to the U.S. Supreme Court.
We wrap up features with a look at the current state of wealth. Writer Carrie Kirby asks local wealth managers what we should be doing now that the economy is coming back. Is it time to invest again? To buy a house? To give to your favorite charity? Kirby finds out.
Up front we’ve got a look at favorite ferry stops, organizations celebrating their 100th year, apps to improve your dining experience, flouncy bathing suits and more. You’ll also meet musician Jonathan Korty, seamstress Jenny Chew and the personalities behind Marie Veronique Organics and Odalisque Cafe.
In Destinations we look into perfect ways to spend summer on Oahu and, for those staying closer to home, some great wine country experiences.
Summer in Marin — does it get any better? We hope you enjoy the issue and all the great things to do in and around this beautiful county.
