Pop-up Dinner Honors an Indigenous Chef

venisonOakland-based Chef Caesare Assad interprets traditional Native American dishes at an intimate San Francisco pop-up dinner. Chef Assad pays tribute to her mentor, Potawatomi Chef Loretta Barrett Oden, through interpretations of recipes developed by Chef Oden. The six-course meal features Seka Hills olive oil, heirloom vegetables from Full Belly Farm, and locally sourced salmon, quail, and game. At each dinner in the series, guests meet the chef behind the meal and are treated to a short film documenting the process of developing the menu, sourcing ingredients, and creating the dishes. A portion of the proceeds from this dinner are donated to the Oakland-based nonprofit Mandela Marketplace. Cost: $120. Tickets and info: here
