Quinten Frye, Tacolicious (Eat Drink SF Preview Series)

Saturday, August 19, 2017, 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 and highlighting the upcoming festival Eat Drink SF. Copies of the Tacolicious cookbook will be available for sale after the demo.

Texas native chef Quinten Frye came of age feeding on Austin’s Tex-Mex, but it was a summer traveling through Mexico and cooking in San Miguel de Allende alongside Tacolicious’s Taco Lab chef-partner Donnie Masterton that informed him. In 2012, Quinten moved to Honolulu where he was honored as a James Beard Rising Star Chef Semi-Finalist for his work as the executive chef of Salt Bar & Kitchen, named “Hawaii’s Best New Restaurant.” Simultaneously, he launched his own pop-up restaurant Cocina Modern Mexican. After a stint working in DC for Jose Andres, Frye relocated to San Francisco to helm Tacolicious’s Mission District kitchen and oversee menu development, seasonality and sustainability for all T-lish locations.

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.
