My friend Mary writes: “Now that you have successfully eaten our beloved Jints to victory with gumbo what do you plan to prepare to defeat the Raiders?”
That’s a damn good question Mary and I wish I had a good answer. San Francisco would be easy. Chippino would work or something with arugula in it, and it would have to be in season of course with a nice Nappa Valley Chardonay. Oakland is a different story entirely.
Not only is Oakland a more working class, down and dirty kind of place everyone always talks about their popular sister city across the bay and nobody spends a great deal of time writing about the Oakland culinary scene.
Based on who you see representing “Raider Nation” in the stands they may be tailgating with the liver of some unsuspecting San Diego Chargers fan with fava beans and a nice chianti.
So what the heck do they eat in Oakland anyway. I am looking for suggestions. The best suggestion will be cooked on Sunday and served to my guests so that we can eat the Raiders in effigy. Be creative, I can cook anything.
