Foodies: This Auction is for YOU!

food·ie: (noun, informal) a person with a particular interest in food; a gourmet.

State Bird Provisions has donated priority reservations for two to Nia House's auction coming up this Saturday, October 29th. Our own Nia House parent, Emily Thelin, freelance writer and contributor to The Chronicle’s Food+Home, wrote a review on this creative restaurant in San Francisco's Fillmore neighborhood. Check out her article here. (Thanks to Wylie for scoring this donation!)

Emily Thelin has also made a donation to the auction! You can have your very own cooking lesson with a trained professional chef!

For five years during and after college Emily worked as a professional chef: as a commis chef (kitchen lackey) in London, a private chef in France, and as a line cook in Washington, DC. In Washington she cooked at The Morrison Clark Inn, Citronelle and Obelisk, which Gourmet Magazine listed as one of the nation’s 50 best restaurants while she was there.

The deliciousness keeps going... From our own community, we have homemade bread by Ben, a cooking lesson & home-cooked Indian dinner with Kabir's Grandma, wood fire pizza with the Ridolfi's, Katy's pies, and so much more!  

While the auction items are entirely savory, the dinner, cocktails, and desserts to be enjoyed at the event are not to missed. Come enjoy handmade cocktails, tamales, homemade flan, Nate's salsa and more! We are so excited to see you all on Saturday, October 29th from 5-8pm at Sam's Log Cabin.
