This Thursday we are excited to have Thomas Martinez, former executive chef of Mission Beach Cafe as our guest chef. Thomas has also worked at Aziza, Greens and Roots. He'll be presenting a menu using farmers market produce and Becker Lane organic pork, highlighting a seasonal progressive cuisine.
A portion of Thomas' proceeds as well as MSF profits will go to Food Not Bombs. San Francisco Food Not Bombs is entirely volunteer driven and serves food to the needy five days a week. Contact them to get involved, or just prepare some food and bring it to their next scheduled distribution.
