CUESA Seasonal Cooking Demo

Last Saturday, Chef was invited to do a seasonal cooking demo for CUESA (Center for Urban Education about Sustainable Agriculture) at Ferry Plaza's Farmer's Market.  Nearly every Saturday, these Chef demos take place right outside of the Ferry Building and are free to the public.  Here's a calendar of event: http://www.cuesa.org/events.  I ended up tagging along to help plate up some samples for the guests and to take a few pictures of course!

To start, Chef Corey made a salad of Fall Greens, Fuyu Persimmons, Baby Beets, French Breakfast Radishes, Goat's Milk Yogurt and Toasted Coriander.

After, he served an Olive Oil Poached Filet of Beef with Pearled Barley, Pickled Pearl Onions and a Broccoli di Ciccio Vinaigrette.

Both dishes were well balanced and deliciously light and satisfying.  The beef was my favorite, so tender it melted in my mouth.  


MOO MiniCards

Just got mine in the mail...SO cute!

I ordered a box of minicards and got to use as many pictures as I wanted - technically you could order a box of 100, each with a different design!  On the reverse is my contact info.  Moo also prints full-sized business cards, postcards and stickers!

And, yes...I promise to write a pastry or at least a food related post ASAP.
