Sauce Celebrity Chef Series presents an afternoon with Michael Pollan

Thursday, April 4th, 2013

For years now, Michael Pollan has been acting as a collective food-conscience of sorts. Globally, through his award-winning books such as The Omnivore’s DilemmaIn Defense of Food and The Botany of Desire, he has been, slowly but surely, changing the way people think about food. Named one of TIME magazine’s 100 most influential people in 2010, Pollan is an advocate for change in food policy (And believe it or not, he knows a thing or two about how to make good food!).

Sauce Magazine and Left Bank Books couldn’t be more excited to have Pollan as our guest for our next Sauce Celebrity Chef Series event held on Thursday, May 9. From noon to 2 p.m. at Moulin event space, Pollan will chat with us over lunch about his latest book Cooked: A Natural History of Transformation. Pollan will also sign copies of the book and answer questions from the audience.

Tickets are $55 and include lunch and a copy of Cooked. Buy tickets here.

Cocoa – and Santa – at Onesto

Friday, December 11th, 2009

121109_santacocoaNational Cocoa Day: Dec. 12 or 13? Authorities on the matter, such as they are, differ, but Onesto Pizza & Trattoria’s going with the 12th. More specifically, tomorrow the South Side eatery will observe that quasi-holiday by treating guests to cocoa – and to Kris Kringle.

Yes, Santa Claus will grace Onesto with his (no pun intended) presence from 1 to 3 p.m. for photos and a story time, said the restaurant’s Michele Racanelli. “Hot cocoa will be complimentary during Santa hours,” she added, “but the rest [of the time] will range from $4 to $6.”

Onesto will serve both kid-friendly and adult cocoa drinks, the latter made with Meletti Cioccolato, Baileys and other yummies. Moreover, said Racanelli, the restaurant will continue to offer hot cocoa throughout the holiday season. And upcoming there on Saturday, Dec. 26: a celebration of National Candy Cane Day.

Yo, DJ, pump this party!

After collaborating with Four Seasons executive chef Karen Hoffman to turn out an amazing four-course meal at Saturday night’s fundraiser for St. Louis Community College’s culinary arts program, held at the swanky downtown hotel, über-celeb chef Hubert Keller brought a bit of his Vegas side to the fete by serving as the post-dinner DJ. Fresh.

So poppin’, so fresh

Monday, February 2nd, 2009

Over the weekend, there was a celebrity sighting at Lubeley’s Bakery and Deli in Shrewsbury, grand prize winner of a General Mills makeover contest. “I’m standing here with the Pillsbury Doughboy,” said a gloating fan into her cell phone. As cameras flashed, the crowd took turns poking the most famous belly in the baking world. What keeps Poppin’ Fresh so adorably plump? According to General Mills territory manager Greg Labens, Doughboy sticks to a strict diet of devil’s food cake and strawberry cream cheese strudel bites.
