The four course dinner is being prepared by Bay Area’s finest chefs including:
Millennium, located in San Francisco’s Tenderloin district, serves gourmet vegetable-based cuisine that’s seasonal, local and creative. Marin Independent Journal praises Millennium’s Executive Chef, Eric Tucker: “Tucker’s touch with vegan dishes is nothing short of miraculous. He can make foods that normally taste like barnyard fodder into a sublime gastronomic experience.”
The Plant Café Organic, now with six Bay Area locations, prides itself on providing local, organic fare while promoting “sustainable practices and healthy living.” When asked by Gastronomique En Vouge what message he tries to get across with his food, Chef Sascha Weiss said he “creates delicious straightforward food that has a vibrancy all its own…blends spices and ingredients from many cultures to put flavors in the right place.”
Hillside Supper Club was founded by two chefs. Tony Ferrari and Jonathan Sutton, who enjoy the camaraderie of eating and drinking together. The Bernal Heights restaurant promotes introducing new friends, experiencing different foods, and experimenting with fun ingredients, all while building a community around the principals of simplicity and sustainability. They are inspired by old world traditions and the importance of seasons.
Flora, an art deco restaurant in Oakland’s hip uptown area offers a menu of reinvented American classics which according to Oakland Magazine includes “over-the top desserts”. Pastry chef Katherine Toy is who Flora has to thank for such accolades. Successful restaurateurs, Dona Savitsky and Thomas Schnetz have a winning recipe for successful Oakland/Berkeley restaurants in Dona Tomas, Xolo La Taqueria, Tacubaya and Bar Fauna.
Each chef is generously donating their time and culinary skills towards this fabulous event.
Emceeing the evening is the very charismatic, alluring, hilarious and brilliant — Tracy Weitz — BCAction’s Board Chair and Director at a Nebraska-based Foundation. Not only is she passionate about women’s health and health justice, Tracy is a foodie in her own right and likes trying new restaurants of various cuisines.
In addition to a fabulous four-course dinner and thought-provoking program, the cocktail hour will include delectable hors d’oeuvres, live entertainment and silent auction.
