Event Details

We love December for all the good eatin’ it entails. Between the holiday meals and the folks coming in town to celebrate with us, there are plenty of excuses for sitting around the dinner table together, breaking bread and sharing stories over tasty home-cooked food.

We’re partnering with Stag Dining Group for something extra cozy this feasting season. Together we’re offering a five-course, wine-paired fine dining experience where you’ll come away with more than a full belly and new buddies – you’ll also leave with useful tips for your own holiday meals, thanks to our special guest, writer/chef Aida Mollenkamp, and goodie bags from our friends in the food world.

Aida is a beloved local food expert whose name you might recognize from her stint as a food editor at or her popular shows on the Food Network and Cooking Channel. Or perhaps you’ve used one of the 1,000 original recipes she’s added to her site. She recently published an essential food lovers' reference guide and recipe book for Chronicle Books, Keys to the Kitchen, which we're totally using as our secret weapon every time we entertain.

She’s collaborated with the Stags to craft a dream holiday menu riffing off her cookbook, and she’ll be speaking between courses as well, offering select tips and tidbits. 

Please join us on Saturday, Dec. 15 at a clandestine location in the Mission where we’ll celebrate Aida Mollenkamp and the joy of holiday cooking.
