Looking to history for inspiration

Menus for the week of April 11th.

A few of our cooks are doing an informal art+food pop-up this Saturday, April 16th, from 5pm-10pm. You should totally come check it out.

Here’s what we’ve got planned for this week:

  • Monday finds out that Beirut is relatively safe right now.
  • Tuesday clears our 25 sq. ft. backyard for a Bay Area BBQ
  • Wednesday flips through the yellowed pages of Eunice Phillips’ cookbook collection
  • Thursday herds sheep in pastoral Hungary
  • Friday leans on the horn, non-stop, in Dehli

Do you have access to unique or obscure cookbooks from your family or cultural heritage? Let us borrow it for a couple weeks and we’ll let you have a free meal when we cook from that book.* We’ll take great care of it, and return it promptly.

*offer subject to us wanting the book in the first place. I mean, no offense if we don’t take yours, but just fair warning that we reserve the right to reject any submissions for reasons including, but not limited to, (a) written in a language that none of our staff speaks, (b) half the recipes include gelatin or cream cheese, (c) we already have the book, (d) your grandmother was inspired primarily by a lady named Betty Crocker, etc.

Stop in, say hello, grab a bite to eat.
