When his oldest son was leaving for college, Cal Peternell, the chef of San Francisco’s legendary Chez Panisse, realized that, although he regularly made dinners for his family, he’d never taught them the basics of cooking.

Join Peternell as he shares Twelve Recipes, an introduction to the kitchen prepared and honed through many phone calls with his son. Peternell focuses on the core foods and dishes that comprise a successful home cook’s arsenal, each building skill upon skill and connecting with others to weave into a larger story that illuminates the connection between food and life.

Cal will be signing copies of his new book, Twelve Recipes, following the event.

 

Brief Bios

Cal Peternell grew up on a small farm in New Jersey and earned a BFA in painting from the School of Visual Arts in New York City. Living in Italy with his wife, artist Kathleen Henderson, Cal was inspired to pursue a cooking career. After working at various acclaimed restaurants in San Francisco and Boston, including Bix, Loretta Keller’s Bizou, Biba and The Blue Room, he landed at Chez Panisse, where he is the chef. Cal and his wife have three sons, and live in Berkeley, California.

Jack Hitt is a regular writer for The New York Times Magazine and occasionally contributes to the public radio program, "This American Life." His most recent work, an attempt at investigative cuisine about the fading practice of making cane sugar syrup, first appeared in Garden & Gun Magazine and will be published later this year in Best Food Writing 2014. His book, Off the Road: A Modern-Day Walk Down the Pilgrim's Route into Spain, was made into the motion picture, The Way, directed by Emilio Estévez and starring Martin Sheen. His latest book, Bunch of Amateurs: A Search for the American Character, was recently published in paperback.
