I'm looking for a cheap-ish dinner place in Berkeley (preferably around campus) that's still on the nicer side. Looking to pay $10-15 for entrees and a nice environment to catch up with friends. Preferably not Indian, Chinese, or American. Thanks!
The kitchen has its own language, forged equally from hot pans and sharp things coming around corners, and tight spaces shared for hours on end. In this brand new series, we devote time to the words and phrases chefs hold near and dear to their sweaty, stressed out, crass little hearts. Today's deep-dive: SHOEMAKER.
The squashiest of the squash. All-the-squash-we've-shot-and-it's-only-the-first-week-of-November squash!
Moist Carrot Cake
This carrot cake is incredibly moist and tender, and fragrant with cinnamon and nutmeg. Speckled with raisins and nuts (or not, if you prefer yours plainer), the cake is topped with a rich, tangy-sweet cream cheese frosting.
Missing ingredients. Too many guests. A cramped kitchen. Experience the first night of service at Chef Brett Cooper's Aster in San Francisco. Opening Night immerses you in the rush of the unknown, as restaurants around the world open their doors for the first time. These things only happen once. Snag that coveted seat at the line, on us.
