Internet-enabled smart locks aren’t a new idea, but they’ve usually been ugly, clunky, and required monthly service fees. But a new company called August is trying again, with a beautiful Yves Behar-designed lock module and a free service that allows you to send and receive access keys to anyone with an iPhone 5 or 4S. It’s reminiscent of nothing so much as the Nest smart thermostat, which also shook up a staid market with smart design and clever software. Unlike the Nest, however, the August Smart Lock promises interoperability with other smart devices — cofounder Jason Johnson serves as the chairman of the Internet of Things Consortium.
For each quarterly issue of Edible San Francisco magazine this year, I am doing a “farm to table, in one afternoon” story to show the origins of a dish served at a San Francisco restaurant. For the last issue I visited Annabelle’s farm in Bolinas, and in the current issue I traced an ingredient for Namu Gaji, a New Korean-American street food restaurant.
Kristyn Leach is the farmer at Namu Farm, a one-acre plot dedicated to the restaurant an hour outside the city. She picked red mustard with her trusty farm dog, Bebe, that I took to Chef Dennis Lee (pictured above) at the restaurant where he prepared the dish above (recipe here).
Still need to try this restaurant. I mean, it is just down the street.
