What: Studio Gourmet interviews Chef Arnold Wong, who gives a live food demonstration

Where: Circolo on 500 Florida Street

When: Tuesday, March 27 at 5:30 p.m.

Cost: $50 (minus free drinks all night and a taste of Wong's craved dumplings)

The Rundown: Studio Gourmet is taking a break from exclusively filming shorts to host its own TV show. Expect interviews with local chefs, a live cooking demonstration, then cocktails to follow.

The next taping on March 27 will feature local chef Arnold Wong cooking his signature Shitake Mushroom Dumplings. Wong's dumplings have been craved by the city since they were introduced 15 years ago when Wong founded his first wine bar restaurant, Eos.

After the cooking demonstration, Studio Gourmet will tape a one-on-one with Wong. The host will delve into Wong's experiences growing up at his family's market, opening Eos (soon to close under a different owner), and cooking as a chef at E&O Trading Company-- where his coveted dumplings are currently served with a drizzle of foie gras miso sauce.

Studio Gourmet's next taping will be similar to its last video featuring RN74's chef Jason Berthold.

No word as to where the TV pilot will be aired, Studio Gourmet is still working to sell its show to a local outlet. 

All guests will be treated with beer and wine provided by Circolo. But the most important portion of the show is your shot at the spotlight: tasting Wong's dumplings. Food lovers and critics wanted.

Tickets cost $50, e-mail to save your seat. Visit Studio Gourmet's website for more information.

  • 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.'"
