DATE: November 20, 2019
TIME: 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
LOCATION: The Studio
Join us for this special event featuring local author Kevin Alexander, whose new book Burn the Ice is getting rave reviews for its portraits from a culinary revolution that has swept across America. Our speaker will take us on a journey through the travails and triumphs of a number of key chefs, bartenders, and activists, as well as restaurants and neighborhoods whose fortunes were made during this veritable gold rush. It is both an end and a beginning. It is the firsthand story of a revolution in how Americans eat and drink.
Kevin will be joined by a guest panel moderated by Gibson Thomas, publisher and Editor in Chief of “Edible Marin & Wine Country” in conversation with Anjan Mitra, founder and co-owner of DOSA with locations in San Francisco and Oakland; and Heidi Krahling, the chef behind Insalata’s and Marinitas in San Anselmo.
A reception and book signing (with books available for purchase from Book Passage) will follow the event.
