BCAction and our Honorary Hosts Ann and Larry Wheat, owners of Millennium restaurant, invite you to Action Speaks Louder Than Pink – Food for Thought
A mouthwatering four-course meal benefitting Breast Cancer Action? Sound tempting?
How about if we told you it will be prepared by renowned Bay Area chefs from Calafia, Haven, Millennium, and The Plant Café Organic and paired with a thought-provoking program calling out pinkwashing, which we all know, is grossly overwhelming in October?
Join us at the 3rd Annual Action Speaks Louder Than Pink – Food for Thought event.
All five amazing chefs are donating their time and culinary talents because they believe in our work. They all use locally sourced, organic and sustainable ingredients whenever possible, as well as offering vegetarian and vegan options for all courses.
Chef Charlie Ayers, most widely known as the first executive chef at Google, Inc. and past chef to The Grateful Dead, Chef Ayers is the visionary and Executive Chef at Calafia Café in downtown Palo Alto. Chef Ayers’ café and market has a single mission: “provide the greater public with healthful, artisan-style, sustainable cuisine in a fast and affordable format.”
Chef Eric Tucker, joining Food for Thought for the third consecutive year, is the masterful Executive Chef at San Francisco’s beloved vegan restaurant, Millennium, owned by our Honorary Hosts, Ann and Larry Wheat. Millennium is proud to serve seasonal, local and creative vegetable-based gourmet cuisine. Chef Tucker’s touch with vegan dishes is described as “nothing short of miraculous. He makes foods that normally taste like barnyard fodder into a sublime gastronomic experience” (Marin Independent Journal)!
Executive Chef Sascha Weiss and Pastry Chef Susanne Stampke return to Food for Thought for their second year from The Plant Café Organic. These two chefs are proud to serve local, organic fare that promotes “sustainable practices and healthy living. Chef Sascha creates delicious, simple, vibrant food that blends spices and ingredients from many cultures to put flavors in the right place.
Chef Chris Johnson of Haven, which was recently named by 7×7 as a favorite newbie restaurant in Oakland and mentioned in the New York Times as one of the 45 places to go in 2012, creatively plates up luscious, family style platters of vegetable-centric food. Chef Johnson comes to Haven after a stint at San Francisco sister restaurant Coi.
And if that doesn’t get you jumping in your seat, our emcee for the evening is “culinary concierge”Marcia Gagliardi, beloved by many in San Francisco as “the tablehopper.”
