The Bay Area, for all its claim on culinary innovation, is missing out big time. Check out the Follow that Chef series being held at Santa Monica Place.  With all our local fruits and veggies, and the prominence of healthy, fresh food as a major fitness trend, it would be great to see a similar program here in Silicon Valley. Hey Santana Row, are you listening??

On Wednesday, March 28, 2012 The Gourmandise School of Sweets and Savories at Santa Monica Place held its  Follow That Chef Series.  The series is a  lineup of recognizable chefs and authors who will lead class attendees on a tour of the Santa Monica Farmers Market and then showcase cooking techniques. 

First up: Clementine chef Annie Miller who led a shopping tour at the Wednesday Farmers Market followed by a cooking demonstration and tasting.  Even without being there you can tell her menu is wonderful from how she describes her cooking.  “The best compliment I get is when someone tells me that something we make reminds them of how their grandmas used to make it — I love that.

Next up:  Chef Paul Osher Saturday April 14.  Registrations fill fast. 

The Follow That Chef events are partnerships between the City of Santa Monica and The Gourmandise School of Sweets and Savories. The events are FREE to the public and require registration at The Gourmandise School of Sweets and Savories.
