Meet Food Gal At Draeger’s in San Mateo in October

Yes, those are blondies next to me, and mostly cookbooks behind me. Photo by Joanne Hoyoung-Lee.

Between food bloggers, Yelp reviewers and Zagat voters, it does seem like everyone is a food critic these days. Here’s your chance to learn how to become a better one (or at least better articulate to your friends what you loved and what you despised about the last place you dined).

Join me and Sheila Himmel, former restaurant critic for the San Jose Mercury News, on Oct. 23 at 6:30 p.m. at Draeger’s Cooking School in San Mateo, when we host the class, “Everyone’s A Critic.” We’ll teach you how to judge a great or a dismal dining experience, while entertaining you with stories about our own experiences in the eating arena. Join us for an evening of wonderful wine, delicious food, and fun banter.

Price is $55; class size is limited to 40 people. Sign up here, and hope to see you there.

P.S. If the brown butter toffee blondies in the photo are making your mouth water, find the recipe here.

  • what a great class to offer. i love draegers. my mom called me a few days ago about this very class because i recently booked a flight to the bay area for that weekend. she’s trying to convince me to change my flight by two days so i can attend this…we shall see!

  • Oh, I hope you do! It would be fun to meet you in person after conversing with you through emaill and blogging. 😉

  • I need to check my schedule. Sounds like it would be very interesting and fun.

  • My culinary heroes! What I love about both of you is the obvious passion and knowledge of food, without a hint of pretentiousness.
