The twelfth annual ~WOK ON THE WILD SIDE~ is coming up on Monday April 26th—it’s an annual fundraiser for the City College of San Francisco Culinary Arts and Hospitality Studies Department. This year, guest chefs are preparing a sit-down dinner of classic San Francisco dishes (with student help): Staffan Terje, Perbacco and Barbacco; Bruce Hill, Bix and Picco; Mauricio Sibrian of historic John’s Grill; Jennifer Biesty, Sir Francis Drake Hotel; Laurence Jossel, Nopa; and John Hui of Pebble Beach Resort. San Francisco native and City College alum Tom Sweeney, well known as the Beefeater doorman at the Sir Francis Drake Hotel (for over thirty years) is the guest of honor.
Proceeds from the dinner, silent, and live auctions benefit scholarships and underwrite much-needed improvements to the student-run restaurant and kitchen facilities. California budget cuts make it harder and harder to provide the kind of quality education with cutting-edge equipment that their students need to prepare them for the current job market. Please consider attending this dinner to help support our city’s future culinary talent!
