It’s called GOOD VS. EVIL: An Evening with Anthony Bourdain & Eric Ripert and if you don’t get your tickets ASAP, you just might not be able to get tickets at all.

GOOD VS. EVIL:
An Evening with Anthony Bourdain & Eric Ripert
LIVE at the SHN Orpheum Theatre FRIDAY, APRIL 12

 https://www.shnsf.com/online/bourdain

SAN FRANCISCO (November 13) – Two chefs. Two unlikely friends. Two very different careers and philosophies sharing one stage.

Join Anthony Bourdain and his good friend, Eric Ripert – internationally renowned chefs, authors, and television personalities – as they share stories and muse on the place of food in our personal, community, and global life. Their Good vs. Evil tour will visit San Francisco for one night only, 8PM – Friday, April 12th at the SHN Orpheum Theatre. This engaging evening of storytelling and observation, providing frank and provocative insight into what really goes on behind kitchen doors, will delight and intrigue.

Anthony Bourdain, chef-at-large at New York’s famed Brasserie Les Halles, is the author of bestselling titles Kitchen Confidential and Medium Raw – both hilariously blunt portraits of life in restaurant kitchens. His latest project Get Jiro!, a culinary-themed graphic novel, was released on July 3 and quickly reached the #1 spot on the New York Times bestseller list. In addition to hosting Travel Channel’s Emmy Award-winning No Reservations and The Layover, Bourdain will serve as host for two new television shows premiering in 2013: The Taste, a cooking competition series for ABC, and a docu-series for CNN, expanding the network’s coverage of travel, culture and cuisine.

Eric Ripert is the chef and co-owner of New York’s famed Le Bernardin, which continues to receive universal critical acclaim, including three stars from the Michelin Guide, an unprecedented “29” food rating from the Zagat Guide for the past three years, and consistent four-star reviews from the New York Times for over two decades. He has also served as guest judge and “fan favorite” on Bravo’s Top Chef for several seasons. Ripert is the author of four cookbooks, including 2010’s Avec Eric (based on his popular PBS program of the same name), On the Line, A Return to Cooking, and the Le Bernardin Cookbook.

San Francisco’s Victory Garden Coming Along Nicely

Wednesday, August 13th, 2008

Things are speeding up at Slow Food Nation ’08 in San Francisco.  After fighting the worm wars, it’s nice to sit back and spend $500 to eat some celebrity chef food under the rotunda of City Hall. It’s the Victory Garden Celebration Dinner on August 24:

District Attorney Kamala Harris, Peter Coyote, Thomas Keller and Alice Waters invite you to celebrate the Victory Garden on Civic Center Plaza. We’ll gather in the garden, share a meal prepared by Chez Panisse, and plant the seeds of victory at San Francisco City Hall.

Or just get a table for $10k and invite a few friends to have some paella, your choice.

Blue corn as high as a elephant’s eye, and it looks like it’s climbing clear up to the sky:

See you there!

“The Slow Food Nation Victory Garden, planted by a coalition of volunteers including Mayor Gavin Newsom and Alice Waters, is an edible garden on the Civic Center Plaza. Planted on the same site as the post World War II Victory Gardens 60 years ago, the Victory Garden represents the values of sustainability, community and stewardship of the land, while producing high quality food for people in need.”
