Whole Foods Markets in Southern California and the Pacific Northwest began to roll out Three Twins Ice Cream last week, with reports from my older brother Mark, who lives up there, of Three Twins at the Bellevue, WA and Seattle Denny stores. Northern California began placing 3T in their stores as of yesterday. My co-worker/partner/right hand man/left hand man Scott and I went to see Three Twins with our own eyes today at the grand opening of Whole Foods Novato. It's a beautiful store, that despite being packed with folks grazing on the free organic cheese and tahini slaw, is really well laid out with lots of room, especially around the oft stressful prepared food are. Here's a pic of me taken by Joe Rogoff, who is VP of the Whole Foods Norcal Region and friend of Three Twins, as I squat next to my pride and joy. Word on the street is that it's going to move to a higher shelf, so there won't be a need to squat for the next photo.

We also had some visitors at the plant today, our friends Jen and Bailie, who stopped by while getting some pepper seeds at the Seed Bank in downtown Petaluma. I know Bailie from my beloved Fatted Calf (http://www.fattedcalf.com/), which is quite possibly the finest charcuterie (spellcheck, that is in fact a word, as in a place where unprecedented savory deliciousness in the form of sausage, pates, cured meats and other delights are created and sold) in all the land. Bailie runs the kitchen, where she was most recently making a big batch of head cheese! It is not the best picture of the cute couple, as I was shivering in our -20F tomb....
