“Weekly Beast” Menu Expands To More Nights
One Market’s popular “Weekly Beast” menu, previously available only as a prix fixe option on weekends, now will be offered Tuesday through Saturday each week with a la carte options.
Each week at the San Francisco restaurant, Chef Mark Dommen spotlights dishes made from a different whole animal sourced from local ranchers.
Meet Italian Food Authority Francine Segan
As a food historian and cookbook author, Francine Segan has a way of finding novel Italian recipes you often don’t see elsewhere.
Case in point — her memorable “Cantaloupe Cake,” which I baked last year. Yes, melon in a cake.
Her latest book is “Pasta Modern: New & Inspired Recipes From Italy” (Stewart, Tabori and Chang).
She’ll be teaching two upcoming classes at Draeger’s, Nov. 6 and Nov. 7.
The 6:30 p.m. Nov. 6 class, “Pasta Modern,” will take place at the Menlo Park store. Segan will demonstrate how to make such dishes as “Bucatini Dome-Pasta Molded with Vegetable Filling” and “Cannoli Pasta Dessert.” Price is $55 per person.
The 6:30 p.m. Nov. 7 class, “Italian Chocolate Experience,” will be held at the San Mateo store. She’ll teach you all about the history of chocolate, guide you through a tasting and show you how to make dishes such as “Chocolate Pasta with Hazelnuts & Creamy Mascarpone.” Price is $55 per person.
