San Francisco

I was placing an order with Fanny from Le sanctuare when she told me about this upcoming event. I got my airline tickets today and I can't wait to attend this event

Demonstration and Book Signing with Hervé This
Monday, Feb 25, 10 am - 2 pm at our San Francisco showroom.
Join us for a 4-hour demonstration and discussion with Hervé This, the founder of molecular
gastronomy and longtime collaborator with Chef Pierre Gagnaire, who has been changing the way
the world approaches cooking. His groundbreaking research into the chemistry and physics behind
everyday cooking is widely used by professional chefs worldwide. In his new book Kitchen
Mysteries, he offers further insight into the science of cooking, answering such fundamental
questions as what causes vegetables to change color when cooked and how to keep a soufflé from
falling. He illuminates abstract concepts with practical advice and concrete examples, how sautéing
in butter chemically alters the molecules of mushrooms, for example, and he explains the science
behind tenderizing enzymes and gelatins. Promising to answer your most compelling kitchen
questions, learn how molecular gastronomy has inspired a generation of renowned chefs and make
you a more creative and imaginative cook. This event includes a demonstration with various
equipments by Hervé This himself. Cost: $30 including an autographed book and a 4-hour
demonstration and discussion. Limited seats available. To RSVP call 415.986.4216 or email
