Saturday, February 18th, noon, Charles Phan, Executive Chef and Owner of the Slanted Door, will present a cooking demo featuring the seasonal bounty of the farmers market at CUESA’s Market To Table Demo. In 2004, Phan won the James Beard Award for “Best Chef: California,” and in 2014, The Slanted Door was awarded “Outstanding Restaurant.” In addition to his awards and accolades, Phan is a leader in the food community and has participated in countless charitable events. The demo will take place in the CUESA Classroom (under the white tents in front of the Ferry Building) and is free to the public, with recipes and samples for all.
With more than 300 participating chefs representing 175+ businesses, CUESA’s Market to Chef Program reaches deep into the culinary community. The program supports chefs through exclusive access to priority parking and equipment at the Ferry Plaza Farmers Market, a monthly email specific to industry needs, educational opportunities, and invitations to CUESA’s cooking demos and fundraisers that increase chefs’ public visibility
