Sunday, April 9, 2017, 11:00 am - 11:45 am
Nutrition and Wellness Consultant. One of the East Bay’s popular culinary personalities, Olivier Said is the co-founder of the acclaimed KITCHEN ON FIRE cooking school, located two doors away from Alice Waters’ landmark Chez Panisse Restaurant in the heart of Berkeley’s famed Gourmet Ghetto.
Prior to opening KoF in March 2006, Olivier Said spent eight years as an owner and bar manager for Berkeley’s popular Cesar Tapas Bar. He has also co-authored two highly-successful books – CESAR: Recipes from a Tapas Bar, named one of the Top 10 Cookbooks of 2003 by Food & Wine magazine, and THE BAR: A Spirited Guide to Cocktail Alchemy.
Born and raised in France, he is the descendant of at least five generations of restaurateurs dating back to the early 1750s in France.
All demos take place at the CUESA Classroom (adjacent to the info booth at Broadway & Water Street) and are free to the public, with recipes and samples for all.
