This Saturday we are excited to feature a whole hog menu, courtesy of Jake Ersland of Amuse Bouche. Jake has been cooking since age 15 and graduated CCA with honors before starting Amuse Bouche, which offers private dining experiences--8 to 14 course tasting menus, complete with wine pairings, for parties of 12 or fewer. He is also the newly appointed executive chef of The Old Ship Saloon.
Jake and his team are donating all of their profits to Northern CA chapter of the MS Society. MSF will donate its profits to the 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.
