Josh Thomsen knew from a young age that he wanted to be a chef and credits his late father, Jerry, for sparking his culinary interest.

The National Weather Service has issued a tsunami warning for Northern California, following last night’s magnitude 8.9 quake off the coast of Japan. The warning estimates wave heights of 2 feet for Fort Point. The tsunami is expected to reach the Bay Area at just after 8 a.m. this morning. Numerous roads in the Bay Area are being closed by the California Highway Patrol in anticipation of the tsunami.
