San Francisco Treats-- The Culinarium at the Design Center

It's a feast for the eyes at the San Francisco Design Center (SFDC) this week.  Tuesday, they kicked off the event with a panel discussion that celebrates my 3 of my favorite things-- Design, Food, and Fashion-- with San Francisco Magazine's style director Elizabeth Varnell, food and wine editor Jan Newberry, and contributing design editor Diane Doran Saeks.

The event was is already in full swing with a full scale kitchen designed by Christopher Peacock for House Beautiful, the official media sponsor of the SFDC Culinarium.  Chef Tyler Florence's cooking demonstration was followed by his book signing for this book just published and released this month.  It's a conversation on the fun and social side of gathering for a meal with those you want to spend time with.

If you can get there, the rest of the event promises to be just as enticing.  A few highlights:  Chef Tanya Holland for World Market and Chef Lea McIntosh of Nesting Newbies will demonstrate on Wednesday, Newell Turner will be on hand to talk about the "The Kitchen: The New American Living Room", and I'll be there on Thursday talking about the Social Palette:  How trends, social media, and palates influence Color.

The event ends with "The Art of the Cocktail" hosted by bartenders from Perry's and a serious happy hour.  You can purchase tickets for one or three days here.

Hope to see you there!  Oh and a little treat from Chef Tyler Florence's book in case this post made your mouth water just a bit:
