How did New Orleans’ Emeril Lagasse influence Chef Matt Accarrino’s career? And just what does this “Food & Wine Best New Chef 2014” winner think of restaurants that don’t make any of their own pasta?
Take a listen as Accarino of the celebrated SPQR in San Francisco answers these questions and more when he joined me in the teaching kitchen at Google headquarters in Mountain View a few weeks ago for a very special event.

The occasion was a cooking demo in conjunction with my cookbook, “San Francisco Chef’s Table” (Lyons Press), to which Accarrino contributed a recipe.

It’s not every day you get to visit Google headquarters in Mountain View.
But a few weeks ago, I was fortunate enough to be asked to do an event there with Pastry Chef Bill Corbett of Absinthe Brasserie & Bar at San Francisco.
Corbett is one of the more than 50 chefs featured in my cookbook, “San Francisco Chef’s Table” (Lyons Press).

Yours truly was honored to be a guest this past Saturday on “Dining Around with Joel” on KKSF 910AM.
It’s always a laugh-a-palooza with host extraordinaire Joel Riddell, who makes it all too easy to chit-chat, especially when the topic is food.
We talk about my debut cookbook, “San Francisco Chef’s Table” (Lyons Press), how it came about, the challenges involved in getting it done, how the restaurants featured were chosen, and what it was like to corral so many chefs into one project.
What are the hot new restaurants and the must-try dishes in the Bay Area for the new year?
Take a listen as yours truly talks food with Michael Bauer, San Francisco Chronicle restaurant reviewer, and Meesha Halm, local editor of the Zagat Bay Area Restaurant Guide on last Thursday’s “Forum” show on KQED Radio.
If you missed yesterday’s “Restaurant Roundup” on the airwaves of KQED’s “Forum” program, you missed out.
But not to despair.
You can catch the nearly hour-long podcast to hear what yours truly, along with Restaurant Reviewer Michael Bauer of the San Francisco Chronicle and Jonathan Kauffmann, San Francisco editor of Tasting Table, dished about Bay Area restaurants, chefs and dining trends.
