MICHAEL POLLAN AT THE DISTILLERY ON MAY 23
Alameda, CA | A program/book party here at the distillery on Thursday, May 23 for Michael Pollan’s new book Cooked: A Natural History of Transformation. Pollan will join Davia Nelson of NPR’s Kitchen Sisters in conversation, and will be on-hand afterwards to sign books and do bone luges (just kidding about that last part).
Mrs. Dalloway’s Bookstore and Community Grains are co-hosting; bites will be provided by Oliveto Restaurant, Let’s Be Frank, Bi-Rite Market, and Mr. Espresso.
UPDATE: The guest list to this event is full.
St. George founder Jörg Rupf nominated for 2013 James Beard Award
Last year, when St. George founder Jörg Rupf was named a semifinalist for a James Beard award for the third year running, we hesitated to call him the Susan Lucci of the Beard awards. Now that he’s garnered his fourth nomination for his groundbreaking role in the American craft distillation movement, we’re as proud as ever—but really hoping for a win this time! Congratulations, Jörg!
