Author Event and Book Signing: Small Business Saturday: Carolyn Jung – East Bay Cooks

With Dave Wasem • Meet & Greet Following CUESA Demo!

The East Bay has always remained true to itself. It includes Oakland, the most ethnically diverse population in the nation; Berkeley, the birthplace of the Free Speech Movement; the island of Alameda with its artisan breweries, wineries, and distilleries; and the Livermore Valley, one of California’s oldest winemaking regions. East Bay Cooks is an impressive collection of 80 signature dishes from 40 of the region’s leading restaurants. An uncomplicated taco with the power to stir the soul? A nourishing bowl of authentic Singaporean laksa? Shrimp and grits with layers of flavors never imagined? It’s all here. And designed with home cooks in mind, recreating signature dishes from the area’s favorite chefs has never been easier. It’s a region that’s got you covered, no matter what the craving.

We are pleased to share our Saturday mornings at the Ferry Building with our friends at CUESA, as they host well-known chefs at their demonstration kitchen. The food-portion of the events usually start at the market about an hour or so earlier than the times listed above. We invite the chefs and their fans to take a short walk over to our store where they can meet their readers and sign their books.
