It’s guaranteed to be a fun, entertaining time when I’m joined in conversation 7 p.m. April 4 by Chef Ron Siegel of San Anselmo’s Madcap restaurant.

After all, he’s not only witty and tells it like it is, but he was also was the opening sous chef of The French Laundry, and the first American to ever trounce an “Iron Chef” on the original Japanese cooking competition show.

This Commonwealth Club event will take place at the Outdoor Art Club in Mill Valley.

Learn how Siegel got his start, what the early days of the French Laundry were like, how winning “Battle Lobster” changed his life, and what it took for him to finally open his first restaurant last year.

Tickets are $55 for general admission for those not members of the Commonwealth Club; $35 general admission for members. Premium tickets are also available for $50 for members and $70 for non-members, which comes with access to seats in the first two rows.

The program includes light hors d’oeuvres beforehand, as well as a cash bar.
