Join yours truly when I host Chef Josiah Slone for a delectable cooking demo at Macy’s Valley Fair in Santa Clara, 6 p.m. June 27.
Slone took over the iconic Sent Sovi restaurant in downtown Saratoga from Chef David Kinch, who went on to open Manresa in Los Gatos. After manning the fine-dining restaurant for nearly 13 years, Slone recently revamped the space into a more casual restaurant, Relish Gastro Lounge.
Chef-Owner Jin Suzuki of Saratoga’s Hachi Ju Hachi is so finicky about his ingredients that he even makes his own salt.
At his restaurant, he practices the art of washoku: traditional Japanese food based on the principles of harmony, balance, simplicity and restraint.
Experience a taste when Suzuki joins me for an inspired cooking demo at 6 p.m. March 14 at Macy’s Valley Fair in Santa Clara.
At Bushido Izakaya in downtown Mountain View, you’ll find clever cocktails and creative Japanese small plates. Plus something more.
An adherence to sustainable seafood.
That’s more rare than you think when it comes to the offerings at most Japanese restaurants. But Chef Isamu Kanai has made it his mission to do right by the world’s oceans.
Come see the inventive sushi he dreams up, when he joins me for a cooking demo at 2 p.m., Jan. 30 at Macy’s Valley Fair in Santa Clara.
Restaurants with the best views don’t always boast the greatest food.
Not so with Menlo Park’s Madera restaurant,which has one of the prettiest dining rooms around, and a most talented chef in East Bay native, Peter Rudolph.
Get a taste of his elegant, farm-to-table cuisine when he joins me for a cooking demo, 6 p.m. Dec. 3 at Macy’s Valley Fair in Santa Clara.
Enjoy a taste of spice and all things nice when yours truly is joined by Chef-Owner Pradeep Kumar of Vedas restaurant for a cooking demo, 6 p.m. Oct. 19 at Macy’s Valley Fair in Santa Clara.
With outposts in Milpitas, San Mateo and Pleasanton, Vedas restaurants offer up a bold taste of the various regions of India. They are known for their proprietary spice blends, made in traditional stone grinders to preserve their robust flavors.
Born in Delhi, Kumar worked in New York City restaurants, Silicon Valley tech cafes, and with Food Network celebrity Robert Irvine of “Dinner: Impossible.”
