Chef Battle with an Italian Spin

Posted By on Wed, Mar 7, 2012 at 12:18 PM


Battle of the Chefs

When: March 19, 6:30 p.m.

Where: The San Francisco Italian Athletic Club (1630 Stockton at Union)

Cost: $60

The Rundown: Three chefs will take to the kitchen to chop, stir, and cook their way towards victory. The twist to this chef battle hinges on geographic regions of Italy -- each chef representing the flavors and textures from various parts of the country.

Michele Belotti, the 25-year-old chef who joined the Marina's Ristobar straight from Piemonte, will represent the North. Central Italy's flavors will be put to the test by Alameda's C'Era Una Volta chef Rutilio Duran. And representing the South is Calabria-born Massimo Covello, who recently left Mill Valley's Piazza d'Angelo to pursue a new restaurant venture.

Who wins will be determined by the attendees; each "judge" will taste the chefs' plates, one protein and one vegetable, and the collective vote of the crowd will determine what chef -- and region -- earns bragging rights for the day.

  • 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.'"
