Join the Food Gal and Chef Jared Montarbo of Alexander’s Steakhouse For A Cooking Demo

MacysAlexandersSteakhouseYou’re in for a meaty time when Chef Jared Montarbo of Alexander’s Steakhouse joins me for a cooking demo, 1 p.m. Sept. 18, at Macy’s Valley Fair in Santa Clara.

The upscale, Asian-inflected steakhouse recently re-opened in a new, larger location in the Main Street Cupertino development. Its centerpiece is a dry-aging room that’s visible right when you walk in the doors, where magnificently marbled Japanese Wagyu is on display.

Montarbo is a Bay Area-native, who enrolled at the California Culinary Academy at the young age of 17, before going to cook for Wolfgang Puck’s restaurants in Los Angeles and Las Vegas.

Have all your questions answered about beef, and taste Montarbo’s exquisite tartare. You’ll get the recipe to take home, too.

The free demo will take place in the culinary kitchen on the main floor of the Men’s & Home store.

Winner of the Food Gal Contest

In last week’s Food Gal contest, I asked you tell me why you most want to try einkorn, the ancient wheat that’s never been hybridized and is a good alternative for those who are gluten sensitive. The winner will receive a $75 gift card from Jovial, maker of einkorn flours and food products.

Congrats to:

Stacie Fontinell, who wrote, “I would love to win this so that I can make a gluten free pie for my neighbor at Thanksgiving. They don’t have family in the area so every T day we have them over. I would love to surprise her with a pumpkin pie that she could enjoy.”
