Telmo Faria, Tacolicious

Saturday, December 6, 2014 - 11:00am to 11:45am

Stop by the CUESA Classroom for a cooking demo featuring the seasonal bounty of the Ferry Plaza Farmers Market, followed by a book signing.

Telmo Faria, executive chef of Tacolicious and Chino, is the son of Portuguese immigrants. Telmo spent the early part of his childhood on the island of Faial in the Azores, Portgual, where his father operated two restaurants. He then moved to San Jose, CA, where he grew up in a Latino neighborhood eating well. Telmo was the executive chef at La Salette in Sonoma, as well as Tropisueño in San Francisco, before joining the Tacolicious and Chino team.

After the demo he will be signing copies of Tacolicious’s new book, Tacolicious: Festive Recipes for Tacos, Snacks, Cocktails, and More, published by Ten Speed Press.

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