An Evening With a Masterful Food Photographer

Who wouldn’t want to be able to photograph food as lovely and luminous as those images above?

I know I sure would.

The pics of Point Reyes glorious cheeses and scenery wereย  taken by Eric Wolfinger, who has regularly chronicled the San Francisco food scene at such restaurants as Tartine, Slanted Door and Delfina. In fact, you can see his work in the upcoming “Tartine Bread” (Chronicle Books).

Sept. 20, you can meet him in person and pepper him with photography questions when he hosts a special dinner at Outerlands in San Francisco.

The dinner will both celebrate his new exhibition at the nearby Carville Annex, which runs through Oct. 6, and benefit Marimed, an organization working to bring health care and medical care to post-quake Haiti.

The five-course dinner will span an array of dishes, paying hommage to Wolfinger’s global travels that have taken him to remote Columbian villages to basement bakeries in Paris.

At every place he visits, Wolfinger does more than take photos. He interacts with his subjects, working alongside them on coffee farms, harvesting sangiovese, and baking artisan breads so that he gets to know their work intuitively.

At the dinner, enjoy dishes such as ceviche, foie gras with apples and saffron, and lamb with rosemary and truffle.

Price of the dinner is $125. For reservations, email

For every ticket sold, Marimed can provide health care to 18 people. Now, that’s a meal that truly delivers.
