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

Chef Sujan Sarkar is a Times Chef of the Year in India and has run two of the country’s most successful restaurants, Ek Bar a Modern Indian gastro bar, awarded the 2016 best new cocktail bar in the world by Condé Nast Traveler UK and Olive Bar and Kitchen. He is also well-known for his work in London at Automat, Almada, Michelin starred Galvin at Windows, in Dubai for opening Tresind, and at Baar Baar in New York City.

Sarkar’s food at ROOH is a blend of east and west with clear Indian influence reflective of the team’s heritage, particularly inspired his own childhood memories. He delicately combines the country’s rich traditional and regional flavors with the best local Northern California ingredients, and modern techniques such as molecular gastronomy in his picture-perfect dishes. Sarkar notes, “I don’t want to overwhelm the incredible ingredients by drowning them in heavy sauces or overwhelming spice.”

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