SOMArts Cultural Center presents Feast of Words: A Literary Potluck, a monthly dinner party where writers and foodies come together to eat, write, and share. Join co-hosts Lex Leifheit & Irina Zadov the first Tuesday of each month to discover local chefs and writers, bring a dish on our monthly theme, and participate in our creative competition for edible and literary prizes!
February's theme is "Sensory Feast" and features literary guest Thy Tran as well as a Potluck Brigade of local cooks and writers creating dishes inspired by six senses. House opens at 6:30pm and space is limited. This month's event will also include a creative competition of on-the-spot writing inspired by the theme.
Literary Guest Thy Tran makes a happy living listening, teaching, writing, cooking, traveling and, most importantly, eating. She has fifteen years of food industry experience across a diversity of disciplines, from restaurants and test kitchens to magazines and newspapers. Trained as a professional chef, she established Wandering Spoon to provided cooking classes, culinary consultation, and educational programming for culinary academies and nonprofit organizations throughout Northern California. Currently, she is an chef instructor at two respected culinary programs: the International Culinary Schools at the Art Institute of CA-SF and Tante Marie's. Thy is also the founder and director of the Asian Culinary Forum, a nonprofit dedicated to educating the public about Asian food around the world. She co-authored The Essentials of Asian Cooking, Taste of the World and the award-winning guide, Kitchen Companion.
