Josh Even, Tosca Cafe

Saturday, February 4, 2017 - 12:00pm to 12:45pm

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

Josh Even was introduced to the restaurant industry after college, working as a bartender at San Francisco karaoke restaurant Kansai. He returned to his native New York, but after working at the legendary Odeon and French bistro Le Gigot (where he made the transition from server to cook), he enrolled at the French Culinary Institute. He subsequently accepted a line cook position at Ken Friedman and April Bloomfield’s West Village gastropub The Spotted Pig, and was later appointed chef de cuisine of The John Dory shortly after it opened. Now Executive Chef of Tosca Cafe, Even collaborates with Bloomfield to create a menu that features classic yet modern Italian, minus the red-sauce kitsch, having made the bold move to serve food at one of San Francisco’s most iconic bars.

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.
