Manish Tyagi, August (1) Five

Saturday, March 16, 2019, 10:30 am - 11:15 am

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

Born and raised in Dehradun, India, some of Manish Tyagi’s fondest childhood memories are of the aroma of spices in his mother’s kitchen and spending time by her side preparing special festival dishes. At August (1) Five, Manish shares his childhood memories of home cooked meals and festival fare with a fresh audience. Drawing on his upbringing and travels throughout the country, the chef deftly combines the wealth of culinary traditions from India’s 29 states with Northern California’s bounty of produce to create nuanced dishes that emphasize traditional flavors and seasonal ingredients.

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