  • Commonwealth Club

Why just compliment the chef when you can understand the convictions behind the cooking? On February 24th, the San Francisco Commonwealth Club hosts a talk with celebrity Chefs Michael Mina and Michael Chiarello, moderated by Evan Rich.

It's no secret that San Francisco's food scene ranks among the best in the country -- but how? Undoubtedly, to succeed in the food industry in an innovative city like San Francisco, chefs must be culinary visionaries.

Award-winning chef and cookbook author Michael Mina owns and runs 18 restaurants, including his Michelin-star namesake restaurant in S.F., and new Michael Mina 74 now open in Miami. Food Network's award-winning chef, vintner and restauranteur Michael Chiarello specializes in Italian Californian cuisine. Rich Table's Evan Rich moderates a discussion with both chefs to discuss their personal food philosophy, commitment to sustainable practices, relationship with social media and inspiration for culinary invention.

The event is in high demand and seating is limited. You can even buy a ticket to privately dine with the chefs at Chiarello's new Spanish restaurant, Coqueta.

The event will take place at the Grand Ballroom of the Fairmont Hotel at 950 Mason St., with a reception and check-in at 6pm. For more details and to purchase tickets, click here.

  • 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.'"
