This Saturday we are excited to have chef/owner of Split Pea Seduction Christian Noto. We have a natural affinity for Split Pea Seduction, whose changing daily menu serving made-from-scratch soups, sandwiches and crostatas from a counter near 6th and Market seems in the same spirit as rotating chefs cooking in a dingy Chinese restaurant. Christian is also the chef/owner of Jersey Tomatoes, a full-service catering company with a focus on local and seasonal produce and slow-cooking and has worked at A16 and The Liberty Cafe. Christian is calling his menu for this Saturday, "Yankee Goes Southern," and he'll be featuring produce from Mariquita Farms, Capay Organic, Knoll Farms, Dirty Girl, and County Line Harvest.
A portion of Christian's profits will go to Urban Solutions, a local charity whose mission is to "foster the well-being of disadvantaged communities by helping to increase neighborhood commercial vitality, strengthen small businesses, create jobs and encourage diversity." MSF proceeds will go to Alameda County Community Food Bank, which provides assistance to 40,000 people each week through a network of 300 community based food pantries and soup kitchens in the East Bay.
