What: Camino Staff Meal
When: Wed., November 16, 6 pm.
The rundown: Oakland's Camino is hosting a special dinner to celebrate the debut of Marissa Guggiana's new cookbook, Off the Menu: Staff Meals from America's Top Restaurants. Guggiana will be at the event, signing copies of the book, which features staff meal recipes from Camino and many other S.F. Bay Area restaurants, including Flour + Water, Delfina, and Osteria Stellina. If you're not familiar with the term "staff meal" in relation to restaurants, it's exactly what it sounds like -- the meal a restaurant's staff enjoys after service is done for the night. Therefore, the menus and recipes in this book are good for feeding large amounts of people inexpensively. Or one really awesome cheap hungry person.
Price includes beer, wine, and a special meal prepared by the Camino staff... family-style, of course. Tickets available online.
