VIP: Chefs, Drugs and Rock & Roll: A Conversation + Book Signing with Andrew Friedman
When it comes to enjoying food, cooking and eating are just the beginning. Our Special Events expose you to the legends, thought-leaders, and other culinary talents whose work will help you foster a deeper appreciation for food and food culture.
About This Class
San Francisco Cooking School invites you to join us for a conversation about the evolution of the chef and the Bay Area’s critical part in that movement. Author Andrew Friedman will join legendary chefs and writers to bring to life stories documented in Chefs, Drugs, and Rock & Roll: How Food Lovers, Free Spirits, Misfits, and Wanderers Created a New American Profession, reminding all of us why we’re so lucky to be eating and cooking around San Francisco.
Moderated by NOPA’s Laurence Jossel, the group will talk about how the professional chef has evolved from coast to coast in the U.S. over the years. This group will have some serious stories to tell. If you’re a food enthusiast in the Bay Area, this is a group you should know – don’t miss it.
The conversation will be followed by a Q&A, book signing, and reception. Wine will be served and books can be pre-purchased with your ticket, below, with a few copies for sale at the event.
- Wine included
- Ages 18+
The average duration of our current cooking classes is 2 hours, which is predominately hands-on work. You will be standing for the majority of class, cooking at your work station as your instructor demonstrates techniques and walks around providing individual feedback.
Due to COVID-19 regulations, we can not have students congregate in the building before class starts. Doors will open 5 minutes prior to class starting and we will begin promptly on time. Students will be asked to queue up outside the door of the school, safely distanced (sidewalks are clearly marked) and will be let in the school just before class begins.
Please arrive at the school with your own mask on. You will be given a new, disposable mask to wear in class to ensure what you have on hasn’t been contaminated prior to entering SFCS. We will have extras available should you need one while at school.
Wear comfortable clothes and close-toed shoes (remember, you’ll be on your feet cooking). The kitchens at SFCS are fully equipped with everything else you need, including clean aprons.
Due to COVID-19 regulations, we will not be serving food or drinks during class, We will, however, be sending you home with both ingredients and finished food items so you can enjoy them later, and practice as well.
Wear casual clothing you can easily move around in, and comfortable close-toed shoes. Long hair must be pulled back and masks, provided by SFCS, are required while in the building.
