Thomas Odermatt, RoliRoti

Saturday, February 25, 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 one of our market sellers.

Thomas founded RoliRoti in 2002 after studying agriculture in Zurich, Switzerland, and working to improve conditions for the animals on his family’s rabbit farm in Hungary. As a marketing student at UC Berkeley, Thomas was required to create a business plan for a fictitious business, and it was out of this project that RoliRoti was born.

All of RoliRoti’s chickens are free range and raised without antibiotics. They are never fed animal by-products. They are raised in open houses with equal space available outside to roam. Most of RoliRolti’s chickens are roasted within two days of slaughter. They are spiced and then spit-roasted at low heat for about 90 minutes on rotisseries in specially built trucks.

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.
