Joanne Weir: Hot Out of the Oven
Chef and Owner, Copita Tequileria y Comida; Host, "Joanne Weir’s Cooking Confidence"; Author, Joanne Weir’s Cooking Confidence; James Beard Award Winner for Best Cookbook, 2005
In conversation with Gary Danko, Chef and Principal, Restaurant Gary Danko; James Beard Award Winner for “Best Chef-California, 1995” and “Best New Restaurant, 2000”
We love the occasional bit of sea urchin foam with our rabbit roulade, but more often than not we find the most comfort in a home-cooked meal. Weir has cooked with Alice Waters, studied under Madeleine Kamman in France, and won a James Beard Award, but her heart is in home cooking. Come glean tips from her food theory and technique as she unpacks dinner made simple.
While we learn from the master of home-made, we’ll also be nibbling on her signature dishes and washing it down with Weir’s award-winning Chardonnay. Simply delicious.
