Vegetarian dining darling, Greens Restaurant in San Francisco, is set to host a special guest chef summer dinner series to foster unity and culinary exploration. Best of all, a portion of the proceeds goes to Foodwise to promote fresh food education and food access programs.
Each guest chef in the series will team up on a four-course menu with Greens Restaurant’s own Chef Katie Reicher.
The series will kick off on June 28 with Chef Crystal Wahpepah of Wahpepah’s Kitchen, one of the few Native American woman-owned catering businesses in California. Chef Wahpepah is one of this year’s James Beard Award nominees for Emerging Chef and a former contestant on the Food Network’s “Chopped.”
On August 9, Chef Heena Patel, current James Beard nominee for Best Chef in California, from Besharam visits Greens to prepare dishes inspired by her native Western India region on August 9.
Lastly, on Sept. 28, Chef Adiam Tsegaye dishes up a feast inspired by her Downtown Oakland restaurant, Mela Bistro, acclaimed for incorporating modern and traditional techniques that highlight the rich essence of Ethiopian cuisine.
Greens will donate a portion of the proceeds from its summer dining series to to Foodwise, a San Francisco-based charity that celebrates the power of community to create a fair, regenerative and delicious food future for all.
Tickets are $120 per person, plus tax and fees. Seating is limited, so book soon before the dinners sell out.
