Oakland's Camino Restaurant Hosts Mozza Cookbook Dinner

Posted By on Thu, Oct 6, 2011 at 7:00 AM


Nancy Silverton's Los Angeles Italian restaurants -- Osteria Mozza and Pizzeria Mozza, co-owned by Mario Batali and Joe Bastianich -- have earned a cult-like following, which might inspire Silverton to stay guarded about their food's secrets. But instead, she's opening the restaurant's recipes wide open in a cookbook -- and now, a Bay Area dinner -- that'll put L.A. on your own plate.

Our sister LA Weekly called the book "freaking awesome," which is high praise indeed. And an accompanying Q&A with Silverton puts a face and a story behind those food-porn-status photos and recipes.

But for a special Bay Area treat, Silverton is coming up to Oakland on Sunday, Oct. 9 to do an $85-a-head dinner at Camino Restaurant in Oakland. The event, hosted by S.F.'s Omnivore Books on Food, will be pulling food from the cookbook -- including some of that wood-fired pizza we all wish we could make at home, says Omnivore owner Celia Sack.

The evening begins at 6 p.m. with hors d'oeuvres and a booksigning. Dinner follows at 7 p.m. There are still a few spots left, Sack says, so call the restaurant at (510) 547-5035 to reserve one of the last few. Camino Restaurant is located at 3917 Grand Ave. in Oakland.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
