On Thursday, June 26, seven of the Bay Area’s finest chefs will cook together to honor Wolfert, and to raise money for the Alzheimer’s Association.
It’s an impressive cast:
- David Kinch, Manresa
- Mourad Lahlou, Aziza
- Russell Moore, Camino
- Daniel Patterson, Coi
- Cal Peternell, Chez Panisse
- Gayle Pirie, Foreign Cinema
- Amaryll Schwertner, Boulettes Larder
The dinner will take place at Camino, and several weeks ago, Moore spoke to Scoop about the event.
“The instructions were to cook something inspired by Paula and by Paula’s books,” says Moore, adding with a laugh: “… Though she’s never satisfied with people cooking from her books. We all adore her, and I’ve read all of her books.”
Tickets start at $350 per person; that price includes dinner, beverages, tax, gratuity and a raffle ticket. In addition to a silent auction and raffle, there is also a VIP Donor ticket option ($1,500), which includes a few more bells and whistles.Tickets — and more information on the event — are available here.
If you can’t make the dinner but would like to make a donation, that is also an option.
Since all the participating chefs have different styles, Moore expects the evening to be somewhat of “an old school, new school combination dinner.”
