Miss A Columnist

Sophie Davies is a Brit who worked as a PR director and events coordinator in London with a portfolio of international brands for over a decade, before deciding to leave the hectic world of fashion for a more balanced lifestyle and raise a family in the Bay Area. She is now raising a son and daughter with her husband in Marin County whilst freelance writing, PR consulting, and updating her lifestyle blog called The Marin Scoop. Sophie loves to get out with her family and discover new places, so her blog began as a newsletter for local moms looking for fun activities and events to do with their kids around the Bay Area. The Marin Scoop has evolved into a lifestyle blog that covers the topics she is passionate about, which include; design, home decor, entertaining, fashion, as well as local family friendly activities and events. She also researches and writes articles about local business owners, in particular aspiring “momtrepreneurs” offering a new and interesting service or product line.
Enjoying good food is paramount in her household so she enjoys writing local restaurant reviews from a parent’s point of view, or from a date night perspective.
She also loves photography and social media and can be found pinning on Pinterest or creating pictures on Instagram whenever she finds a rare moment for down-time.

SF Weekly’s DISH 2012 To Support La Cocina

San Francisco is one of the culinary capitals of the world and you can’t swing a spoon without hitting the amount of food festivals happening in this town. The 5th annual SF Weekly DISH takes place on Sunday September 30, and stands out because it is a collection of great quality restaurants collaborating for a good cause, one that cultivates low-income food entrepreneurs in their own industry.

A portion of the proceeds will benefit La Cocina which helps restaurant start-ups become more self-sufficient in the San Francisco food industry. It gives back by helping businesses to grow by providing affordable commercial kitchen space and access to market opportunities. The food industry has notoriously high cost of entry with large start-up costs to open a restaurant in an overwhelming and overcrowded market. La Cocina provides a platform for motivated entrepreneurs to become economically self-sufficient, and contribute to the economy doing what they love to do.

Visitors to SF Weekly’s DISH can enjoy samples from over 40 food vendors, 10 wineries, spirits and beer companies. The restaurants that will be participating in the event are hand-picked by the SF Weekly food editors and include: Americano, IL Fornanio, Another Monkey Thai, Cliff House, Ristobar, Sol FoodLive Sushi and many more. Delicious samples can be washed down with beverages provided by Stella Artois, Chambord Vodka, Bracey Vineyards and Steven Kent Wine amongst others.
