A crew from Chez Panisse restaurant are headed to Cuba later this year -- and the public are invited to join this cross-cultural, culinary expedition.
Last night, Alice Waters launched the weekend-long fȇte for the restaurant she founded 40 years ago with a portrait unveiling and a food-inspired procession. Chez Panisse, the Smithsonian’s National Portrait Gallery, and the art and food collective OPENrestaurant held a cocktail party Friday at the U.C. Berkeley Art Museum, where a portrait of Waters bound for The Smithsonian was revealed, marking the opening of several days of celebratory and fundraising activities.
Berkeleyans will have the chance to dip their toes into the underground dining movement tonight as the first of a new wine club dinner series kicks off in a loft on Seventh Street.
