“The City Kitchen is a boutique culinary event company and food blog based in San Francisco. It is a blend of my love for cooking, the city that I live in and the incredible local and international products that fill our market’s shelves and stalls. San Francisco is a true melting pot where Chinatown borders North Beach and Japantown and the Mission are just over the hill. We have loads of fresh fruits and vegetables year round, amazing artisanal products and one of the most beautiful farmers markets in the country.

- Caroline Fey, owner & head chef
