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 executive chef of The Old Ship Saloon.
Jake & Co. will be donating a portion of their proceeds to the Northern CA chapter of the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. MSF profits will go to Martin De Porres, a free restaurant at 225 Potrero Avenue near 16th Street that has been serving their community since 1971. Their program is especially uplifting because of the altruistic spirit of their volunteers--some of whom are full-time, live on site, and earn no money.
