Anyone who was in Berkeley in the 1970s would have been exposed to great coffee and great food served in a casual atmosphere. While John Secretan was studying landscape architecture at UC Berkeley, he frequented the ubiquitous coffee shops on every corner (with nary a Starbucks in sight) and developed a taste ? nay passion ? for really good coffee. He also was able to dine out in some of the cutting-edge, but affordable, restaurants in Berkeley's "gourmet ghetto"; places like Chez Panisse that emphasized using the freshest local produce and artisanal products.

  Sande St.John, Woman’s Club Resource Chair and community activist, has advised our Board of Directors that some families in Laguna Beach need  food. “Additional new requests for aid, primarily for food, have challenged existing community resources,” St.John says. “The present economic crunch has made already bad situations worse for some families.” The Woman’s Club asks the community to respond. Please bring a bag of groceries to the Clubhouse, Friday, July 31, between 9AM and 4 PM. Club members will be there to receive donations and will transport them to distributions sites in our community.

It seems like everyone?s on a diet or about to go on one. There?s a new fad diet popping up every week endorsed by some celebrity or other, and for every new miracle reducing plan, there is an old one being discredited. Think grapefruit, Atkins or cabbage soup. On the other hand, we have recently discovered a diet that has been going strong for more than 2,000 years. Actually, it?s more than a diet but rather a whole system for wellness, comprising diet, daily routines, yoga and meditation, breathing exercises and spirituality.

FOOD FOR THOUGHT For years, I've been hearing about the virtues of organic food -- coming from both middle-aged health food junkies and young urban foodies. Their argument that organic foods are chemical-free and taste better always made sense, but I resisted taking the plunge. Unless they were tending their own gardens, how could they be sure they were eating tomatoes fertilized with compost instead of Miracle Gro? Does everyone even understand what "organic" actually means?

Zinc Cafe & Market is already environmentally conscious, so when representatives from Waste Management approached the Laguna Beach restaurant about a food waste recycling program, management was all ears. Zinc is one of 18 Laguna Beach restaurants participating in a trial program in which workers are placing food waste, such as tomato tops and shucked ears of corn, into separate bags to be recycled at Waste Management's food and organics recycling facility. The 30-day pilot program, the first in Orange County, began Oct. 7. Other participating restaurants, selected at random, include Mozambique, Tivoli Terrace and Tivoli Too, according to Eloisa Orozco, Waste Management's Southern California area communications manager.

Some city officials are salivating at the possibility of a food waste diversion plan, but it's not on the table — yet. Under the terms of a new contract approved at the July 16 council meeting, Waste Management is obligated to come up with a plan to divert restaurant food waste from the landfill, but only if requested by the city and at an acceptable cost. "This is a very, very complicated issue," said consultant Richard Tagore-Irwin, who assisted the city in negotiating the new contract.
