Francis Ang and Franklin Liao, Fifth Floor

Saturday, July 27, 2013 - 11:00am to 11:45am

Stop by the CUESA Classroom for a cooking demo featuring the seasonal bounty of the Ferry Plaza Farmers Market. This cooking demo is part of SF Chefs’ July Preview Series.

Currently the executive pastry chef at the acclaimed Fifth Floor restaurant, Francis Ang originally joined the team on the savory side as a line cook. When executive chef David Bazirgan recognized Ang’s passion for desserts, Bazirgan worked closely with Ang to hone his pastry skills and quickly promoted him to pastry chef. Ang grew up in the Philippines and finds culinary inspiration from his travels throughout Asia. As sous chef, Franklin Liao works with Bazirgan and chef de cuisine Nicolai Lipscomb.

All demos take place in the CUESA Classroom (under the white tents in front of the Ferry Building) at 11 am and are free to the public, with recipes and samples for all.
