If you haven’t yet had a chance to check out Hult’s, the farm-to-table restaurant that opened in Los Gatos late last year, here’s your chance to get a first taste.
Hult’s Chef Jose Esparza will be joining me for a cooking demo at 6 p.m. June 12 at Macy’s Valley Fair in Santa Clara to cook up one of his specialties.
Hult’s was opened in the old Hobee’s locale in downtown Los Gatos by Alexander Hult, a former professional hockey player in Europe who was once drafted by the San Jose Sharks. He grew up in Sweden, where in between hockey seasons, he would help his mother in the restaurants of the hotel she managed. He created his own restaurant, Hult’s, with his wife, Sarah Chapman-Hult, a native of San Jose who in 2011 was crowned Miss Nevada USA.
Burgers, meatballs, meatloaf — and all those delicious Americana foods.
You’ll learn the secret to making iconic meaty dishes like that when Chef de Cuisine Anthony Jimenez of The Table joins me for a cooking demo at Macy’s Valley Fair at 2 p.m. May 17.
The Table is a popular farm-to-table establishment in San Jose’s Willow Glen neighborhood that was opened by long-time local chef, Jim Stump, of the Los Gatos Brewing Company.
Who wants to try some beeramisu?
I thought that would get your attention. Yup, it’s the classic Italian dessert, only made with beer.
You can learn how to make it and sample some at Macy’s Valley Fair in Santa Clara at 6 p.m. April 10 when I host a cooking demo with Chef Gaston Alfaro of Half Moon Bay Brewing Company.
Sam’s Chowder House, which put the love in lobster rolls, is coming to Macy’s Valley Fair in Santa Clara, 2 p.m. March 15.
Join me as I host a cooking demo with Executive Chef-Partner Robert Holt, who will show you the best way to prepare seafood with care and finesse.
Holt has worked at some of the Bay Area’s most acclaimed restaurants, including Marzano in Oakland, Boulevard in San Francisco, Acquerello in San Francisco, and Cetrella in Half Moon Bay.
If you’re a fan of great Italian food and wine, you won’t want to miss the next cooking demo at Macy’s Valley Fair in Santa Clara at 6 p.m. Tues., Feb. 25. (Excuse the date typo in the ad.)
That’s because I’ll be hosting Chef Carlo Ochetti of the charming new Centonove in downtown Los Gatos, who will demonstrate how to make one of his prized Italian specialties. A native of Italy, Ochetti grew up cooking with his mother, before going on to attend culinary school. He’s the former chef of Il Fornaio in San Jose.
Also joining us will be Lisa Rhorer, Centonove’s owner and sommelier. She’ll not only discuss the finer points of Italian wines, but bring along the specific wine she’d most pair with Ochetti’s dish. Yes, folks, this is a two-fer: You’ll not only get to taste food but also the wine that best goes with it. How’s that for a deliriously good time?
