Justin Chapple, Culinary Director at FOOD & WINE and author of Just Cook It!

Saturday, May 12, 2018, 12:00 pm - 12:45 pm

Stop by the CUESA Classroom for a cooking demo featuring the seasonal bounty of the Ferry Plaza Farmers Market, followed by a meet-and-greet book signing at Book Passage.

As the Culinary Director at FOOD & WINE, Chapple tests and develops hundreds of recipes a year for the magazine, digital projects and cookbooks. Justin is the host of F&W’s internet-based morning show, Mad Genius LIVE, and teaches wonderfully oddball kitchen hacks in his video series Mad Genius Tips, for which he was nominated for a prestigious James Beard Award. In addition, Justin is the author of the new cookbook Just Cook It!: 145 Built-to-Be-Easy Recipes That Are Totally Delicious and F&W’s cookbook Mad Genius Tips: Over 90 Expert Hacks and 100 Delicious Recipes. Justin joined FOOD & WINE in 2010 as an Assistant Event Coordinator, helping produce the FOOD & WINE Classic in Aspen. Before joining FOOD & WINE, he graduated from the French Culinary Institute and worked under chef Alain Allegretti in New York City. Justin appears regularly on NBC’s Today Show.

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