Inside the California Food Revolution: the Female Pioneers
A Conversation and Tasting, led by Joyce Goldstein and Sam Mogannam
Wednesday, October 23, 6:30-9:00pm
$55 for members, $65 for general public
Celebrated cookbook author and former chef Joyce Goldstein has traced the development of California cuisine from the 1970s to the present, when farm-to-table, foraging, and fusion cuisine are part of the national vocabulary. Goldstein interviewed with almost two hundred chefs, purveyors, artisans, winemakers, and food writers bring to life an era when cooking was grounded in passion, bold innovation, and a dedication to "flavor first."
Throughout her research, Joyce was struck by the major and important role that women played in forming the palate and development of this now iconic cuisine, and realized that this was a part of the discussion few were having. Join us for this truly remarkable event with the female pioneers who have helped shaped the way many Americans eat and view food:
Shelley Lindgren, wine director/owner of A16 and SPQR
Emily Luchetti, executive pastry chef for Waterbar and Farallon
Adriana Silva, co-owner of Tomatero Farm
Amaryll Schwertner, chef-partner of Boulette's Larder and Bouli Bar
Kathleen Weber, owner of Della Fattoria
Joyce Goldstein, author of Inside the California Food Revolution
moderated by Sam Mogannam, owner of Bi-rite Market
Small bites and wine will be served; the evening's menu will be inspired by our panelists' most iconic creations.
