I am extremely behind in posting, but am excited to share an event from back in October that I had such a blast shooting — CUESA‘s (Center for Urban Education about Sustainable Agriculture) 10th Annual Sunday Supper at the San Francisco Ferry Building.
CUESA is the organization behind the incredible year-round farmer’s market at the Ferry Building, with its largest market on Saturdays, as well as its other two weekly markets on Tuesdays and Thursdays. In addition to the market, CUESA runs other really fantastic (and often tasty!) programming and events for pretty much everyone, from Bay Area farmers to elementary school students and some of San Francisco’s top chefs to tourists from around the world.
Sunday Supper was comprised of thirty of San Francisco best chefs, along with winemakers, bartenders and farmers, all in support of CUESA’s Schoolyard to Market, a youth development and entrepreneurship program for high school students. The evening began with a champagne reception with an oyster bar, hors d’oeuves, Napa Valley wine and artisan cocktails, all while guests got a behind-the-scenes look at the unique outdoor kitchen. Guests then headed into the Ferry Building’s Grand Hall for a four-course gourmet dinner served family style at long tables, each with a different menu prepared by six chef teams. The dinner included a ‘whole beast’ entrée course, served at the head of each table. It was a truly one of a kind event and I highly recommend that anyone in the area checks it out next fall.
On top of it all, I really enjoyed working with CUESA’s awesome team and these amazing chefs.
