Enjoy A Delectable Lunch With Me at Baker & Banker May 10
I’m beyond delighted to be the first author to kick off the new “An Epicurean Salon: Food Writers & Authors” series at Baker & Banker restaurant in San Francisco.
Join me at the restaurant at 11:30 a.m. May 10 for a multi-course lunch with wine in honor of my cookbook, “San Francisco Chef’s Table” (Lyons Press).

Chef Jeff Banker and his wife, Pastry Chef Lori Baker are among the bevy of top chefs featured in my cookbook. In fact, you’re in for a real treat, as Baker will be serving her outstanding “Roasted White Chocolate Cheesecake with Cardamom Shortbread Crust,” the recipe of which is featured in my book. Having baked it last year, myself, I can honestly say it’s one of the best cheesecakes I’ve ever had. The texture is uncommonly smooth and creamy. It’s like no other cheesecake you’ll ever have.
If you’ve yet to enjoy the signature fideua with duck at Duende in Oakland, then head there, 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. April 6.
That’s when Chef-Proprietor Paul Canales will be hosting a special book-signing event in the lively bodega side of the restaurant featuring yours truly.
Canales’ recipe for the classic Spanish paella-like dish made with noodles rather than rice is spotlighted in my cookbook, “San Francisco Chef’s Table” (Lyons Press). The book is a compilation of more than 50 top Bay Area restaurants with their stories and their famed recipes.
Fideua with duck and olives at Duende is featured in my debut cookbook.
You’ll not only enjoy glasses of bubbly cava and tastes of the fideua, but go home with a copy of the cookbook, signed by Canales, book photographer Craig Lee, and myself.
