Fernanda Baggio, Acquerello

Saturday, August 19, 2023, 12:00 pm - 12:45 pm

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

Fernanda Baggio is Acquerello restaurant group’s pasta specialist, where she serves as Sous Chef of Research and Development and resident pastaia.  She’s wholly devoted to the craft.

Prior to joining the Acquerello family, Fernanda attended Le Cordon Bleu Canada. Upon graduation she returned to her native Brazil, just as the pandemic hit. She used the time as an opportunity to get creative and entrepreneurial, launching her own subscription pasta kit program called “All You Need is Pasta“ which enabled her to support herself through Covid. Using social media as a marketing tool, her exciting pasta-making videos gained a major following on Instagram, and allowed Fernanda to build connections that brought her to San Francisco and into the kitchen of two-Michelin-starred Acquerello, which has been serving innovative Italian fare since it was established in 1989 by Giancarlo Paterlini and founding chef Suzette Gresham.

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