Join us at CUESA’s Sunday Super

The Center for Urban Education about Sustainable Agriculture’s 7th annual Sunday Supper fundraiser on October 4th, 2009, convenes farmers, chefs, artisans and farmers’ market lovers for a  gala reception and five-course feast to benefit their work in educating eaters and supporting farmers.

During the reception in the Ferry Building Marketplace, 26 Bay Area chefs will prepare sumptuous hors d’oeuvre, four  distilleries will create farmers’ market cocktails, and local wineries will offer their libations.

At 7:00, guests who are staying for supper will ascend the stairs into the Ferry Building’s Grand Hall to enjoy a saporous five-course feast, served family style. Some of the Bay Area’s most well respected chefs have collaborated in teams to provide a unique meal for each long table of guests. This means you will be dining on a different delicious meal than your neighboring table.

We hope the knowledge that your contribution supports a sustainable food system along with this impressive list of participating chefs and will entice you to join us!

Purchase tickets and see you there!
