An Evening Supporting 20 Years of Connecting
Urban Eaters and Local Farmers and Artisans
At CUESA's third annual Summer Celebration, star chefs and bartenders focus their palates and talents on six culinary families — berries, nightshades, grains and legumes, alliums, leaves and flowers, and of course stone fruits — creating original tastes that celebrate the height of the summer harvest.
Guests will feast on unlimited food and drink at the themed tasting areas, where chefs and bartenders have been challenged to create dishes that highlight each grouping. Imagine an eggplant baklava with tomato honey (nightshades) or pork confit with a blackberry-habanero salsa (berries) or a sip of an aperitif made with California poppies (leaves and flowers). And what CUESA event would be complete without the presence of farmers, displaying their bounty and offering farm-fresh tastes, as well as hands-on educational activities and fun?
Proceeds from the night provide much-needed support for CUESA's ongoing education initiatives, including free cooking demos, kitchen skill-building classes, the Schoolyard to Market youth entrepreneurship program, and sustainability scholarships for farmers.
Tickets are $125, $85 of which is a tax deductible donation.
Win a year of dining out at the Bay Area's best restaurants! Purchase tickets for CUESA's Summer Celebration Raffle at the Saturday Ferry Plaza Farmers Market or on the night of the event. Need not be present to win.
