base jump – olive oil

We have a big ol’ list of bookmarks, from projects to make and kid’s gifts to just for laughs and travel. The latter is chock-full of restaurants to visit based on friends’ recommendations and good press from sources we trust and admire. State Bird Provisions has us close to booking such a trip out west. Not that you have to twist our arms to drop in on San Francisco. Helmed by Chef / Proprietors, Stuart Brioza and Nicole Krasinski, the James Beard nominated eatery offers contemporary American small plates (we’re coming to get you, pecorino pancakes) and inventive desserts. And we just so happened to get our hands on a recipe for one: Arbequina Olive Oil Cake with Strawberries. The name alone got us salivating. Wait to you read all of the ingredients.

We can’t wait for strawberry season to get here so that we can try this deliciously bright cake.

Big thanks to Chef Nicole and Elizabeth for honoring our very last minute request with such a remarkable treat!
