Pim Techamuanvivit, Kin Khao, featuring Dirty Girl Produce
Saturday, August 4, 2018, 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. This demo will highlight a farmer-chef relationship forged and sustained at the farmers market, featuring Dirty Girl Produce.
Born and raised in Bangkok, Pim took a circuitous route through the world of food–from writing, teaching, to jam making [ahem, award-winning jam making]–before finding her way back home to the food she grew up with. Longing for Thai food of richer quality and variety in the U.S., Pim is now on a mission to liberate her beloved Thai cuisine from the tyranny of peanut sauce. Her Thai cooking has earned effusive praise from world-class chefs like Alain Passard and Rene Redzepi. Kin Khao is her first (and hopefully not last) restaurant project.
In 1997, Joe Schirmer began working for Dirty Girl Produce and two years later took the helm from the original “dirty girls” who started the farm in 1995. Joe graduated from the UC Santa Cruz Farm and Garden apprenticeship program with a certificate in ecological horticulture. Inspired by the French intensive gardening method, he has adapted tractor farming to incorporate its principles.
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.
