Masters of their Craft: Celebrating the Great Female Chefs and Sommeliers of San Francisco

Presented by the San Francisco Chronicle and the Golden Gate Restaurant Association

San Francisco is home to many excellent chefs but we’re especially proud of all the amazing female talent present in the City by the Bay. This extraordinary evening will feature some of the city’s most acclaimed female chefs cooking together to create one unforgettable dinner. Hosted by Chef Nancy Oakes at Prospect, the seven-course dinner will be paired with wines hand-selected by some of the Bay Areas most skilled female sommeliers, led by A16 and SPQR’s Shelley Lindgren. To make it a true trifecta, many of the wines will come from female winemakers as well. Dinner will be followed by a delectable dessert buffet prepared by some of San Francisco’s top pastry chefs. 40% from the sale of each ticket will be donated to The Chronicle Season of Sharing Fund, a non-profit organization.
