Leslie Jonath - Small Business Saturday (San Francisco Store)

Saturday, November 24, 2018 - 12:00pm

Small Business Saturday has been gaining momentum each year to the point where it has now become the day for customers to discover the independent merchants in their community. (Forget Black Friday and Cyber Monday, they are so over!).  Join our San Francisco Ferry Building Store for a day of special events!

Our San Francisco store will also welcome children's authors Amy Guitierrez, Andy Weiner & Sarah Green at 10:00am and Lou Bustamante at 2:30pm.

We'll also be hosting a book talk with Elaine Petrocelli and friends at our Sausalito store on Dec. 13!


Sharing a meal is one of life’s greatest pleasures and a powerful and intimate way to create community. Feed Your People offers big-batch recipes from big-hearted chefs and cooks for the foods we gather around.

Starting with an introduction to big-batch cooking, this book features dishes by Alice Waters, Bryant Terry, Gonzalo Guzman, Joyce Goldstein, Tanya Holland, Dennis Lee, Preeti Mistry, and other generous cooks who know how to feed a crowd. You will find ideas and practical information for creating dumpling dinners, vegetarian suppers, meatball fund-raisers, soup swaps, chili cook-offs, seafood boils, backyard barbecues, ice cream socials, and so much more. Most recipes are scaled to feed groups of approximately 10 or 20 people with make-ahead strategies, equipment information, and serving suggestions for rounding out the meal.

From simple comfort foods to show-stopping recipes, you’ll discover centerpiece dishes that feature global flavors, like tamales, rustic minestrone soup, Gujarati-inspired chili, big-pan paella, homemade gnocchi, Korean bo ssäm, fork-tender carnitas, seafood boils, Provençal-style grand aioli with roasted salmon, a chocolatey Texas sheet cake, slab pies, trifles, and other foods that will help you celebrate life’s many special occasions.

Gorgeously illustrated with vivid color photography and filled with tips and cooking wisdom, we hope this book will inspire you to gather your friends, family, and community around the table.
