An intimate dinner with Jessica Battilana, local author and recipe developer, with Sam Mogannam of Bi-Rite Market. A four-course meal paired with wine.
We are excited to celebrate Jessica Battilana's recent cookbook, Repertoire: All the Recipes You Need, and invite her to our kitchen to cook a special dinner for our members. These dishes represent a handful of Jessica's foolproof recipes that she has developed over the years. Repeated until they become second nature, these dishes and the others in her book trace lines through her and her family's lives.
Sam Mogannam, who will take a break from his role at Bi-Rite Market and as a founding member of our Board of Directors, to assist his friend Jessica in the kitchen.
Join your fellow 18 Reasons Members for an evening of great food, scintillating conversation, and the chance to connect with neighbors and other 18 Reasons members.
