About this Event

MEIKE PETERS won a James Beard Award for her first cookbook, Eat in My Kitchen, in 2017. She is a food and travel writer who started her food blog of the same name in 2013. She lives in Berlin and Malta.

Chef David Kurtz’s career started in the Country Clubs throughout the Midwest at the young age of fourteen. He continued as he attended the Culinary Institute of America in Hyde Park, New York, furthering his foundation in culinary arts and beverages. From there he traveled heavily though out the country, cooking in various kitchens and in many different capacities. Later, David moved back East, taking a position at Todd English’s Olives in Boston, working exclusively with live fire and classic Italian techniques. It was at this time David took a pause from daily kitchen duties and began a professional direction towards wine and beverages. He moved to Napa Valley and went back to work at the Culinary Institute of America, Greystone. Eventually, David received his level two Sommelier accreditation.

San Francisco eventually claimed David’s attention, where he began work not only at top tier restaurants but also began formulating his close working relationships with local farms and purveyors. David was involved with several establishments including Restaurant Gary Danko, Aziza, Frances and Michael Mina. Eventually, David moved back into smaller outfits with a role at Coi Restaurant and eventually into Saison Restaurant as their General Manager. It was during David’s tenure that Saison received their first and second Michelin Stars. Eventually Chef David moved on to open Homage, located within the Financial District of San Francisco. For David, Homage is a combination of his life experiences, focused on local purveyors and continuing education.
