heartpig On behalf of all of us at the C.H.E.F.S. program I would like to thank Sasha Wizansky of Meatpaper and Mark Pasternak of Devils Gulch for there gracious donation of the pig that we butchered at the issue #6 party.  Since the live butchery demo at Acme Chophouse, the students and I have completely made hot dogs, consomme, rolled face, rendered lard and bacon.  We currently are curing curried copa.  In the future the step by step process with the finished product will be posted when complete.  

Thank you again to everyone at Meatpaper, the volunteers, all the meat loving guests and the chefs that killed it that night.

CHEFS

I am very excited to be involved with CHEFS.  CHEFS (Conquering Homelessness through Employment in Food Service) is a great program that teaches the culinary arts to some of San Francisco’s homeless and formerly homeless adults.  The 24 week program starts with 12 weeks of hands-on training followed by a 12 week internship program.  The goal of the program is to provide culinary training and job placement for certain San Franciscans aspiring to an independent life.  CHEFS is an organization developed by the great people at Episcopal Community Services of San Francisco

At the market with the good people from NEXTCOURSE

Nextcourse is a non profit in the bay area, they are really doing a great job promoting local and sustainable products.  

The beginning of this month I did a dinner with Nextcourse and we documented our travels to the Alemeny farmers market.  During the dinner our guests watched this video of us picking out the vegetables they were eating.  It was a awesome experience and I feel fortunate to work with them and look forward to the next time we work together.
