James Oseland Book Luncheon

Where: Camino, 3917 Grand (at Boulevard Way), Oakland; (510) 547-5035

When: Sat., Nov. 10, 11:30 a.m. to 2 p.m.

Cost: $50 (not including tax and tip); make reservations by calling the restaurant.

The rundown: Saveur's James Oseland, who recently moonlighted as a judge on Top Chef Masters, seems like the kind of guy one would like to have along at a luncheon. Watching him on television, he can make a stiff and reserved first impression, immediately drawing you in to the vault of culinary knowledge he has, but then little looks, smirks, and quips reveal that he has a real fun side, too.

Continuing its series of meals celebrating cookbooks presented in conjunction with Omnivore Books, Camino Restaurant in Oakland (aka "the Town") will offer a world-wise three-course lunch inspired by recipes from Oseland's The Way We Cook: Portraits of Home Cooks Around the World.

Oseland's bubbly nature below the surface should be uplifting enough, but just in case, there's also wine involved.

  • 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.'"
