Mark your calendar for this one: CUESA’s (Center for Urban Education about Sustainable Agriculture) annual ~SUNDAY SUPPER~ is coming up, with forty chefs from leading Bay Area restaurants offering some of fall’s finest food. The event will take place inside the Ferry Building, and begins with hors d’oeuvres and a reception at 6pm, followed by a family-style dinner at 7pm.
