Friends, our beloved CUESA is hosting a virtual version of their annual (and crucial) Sunday Supper fundraiser this year on Sunday October 18th: A Farm to Home Feast! Even though we can’t all get together to celebrate, we can feast on a four-course meal made by some of the Bay Area’s top chefs in the comfort of our own homes, backyards, and porches. So get your quaranteam together (or order the meal and enjoy it separately over a Zoom dinner party). You can also listen to executive director Christine Farren in this On the Fly by tablehopper podcast episode.
This is a dream dine-in feast, including courses from restaurants like Delfina, Mister Jiu’s, Nightbird, Rich Table, State Bird Provisions, and Zuni Café (each Sunday Supper box will have a unique menu, including a course from four different restaurants).
Here’s a peek at some of the end-of-summer/early fall dishes that may appear in your Sunday Supper box:
Brandon Jew, Mister Jiu’s, featuring Root Down Farm and Lonely Mountain Farm Tea-Smoked Duck with Gooseberries, Maple, and Preserved Mandarin with Black Rice with Pine Nuts
Nate Morris, Zuni Café, featuring Dirty Girl Produce Mixed Chicory Salad with Fuyu Persimmons, Toasted Hazelnuts, Chives, and Creamy Mustard Dressing
Nicole Krasinski of State Bird Provisions and The Progress, featuring Yerena Farms Vegan Chocolate Cake, Roasted and Fresh Strawberries, Fennel Seed Granola
The menu will be paired with specially selected wines and hand-crafted cocktails, and you pick up the beautifully packaged meal at the Ferry Building or have it home-delivered. There’s also a live virtual gala and an online auction to bid on one-of-a-kind food experiences.
Proceeds provide critical funds for CUESA’s farmers markets and food education programs. This event also supports our treasured restaurant community, and a portion of your ticket price will underwrite food and labor costs for each participating restaurant. The deadline is now!
Sunday, October 18, 2020, 7-8pm Feast for One: $250 ($175 is tax deductible) Please reserve ASAP!
