John Besh Coming to NoCal


John Besh, one of the country’s leading chefs, will be at the Ferry Plaza in San Francisco this Thursday for a cooking demonstration and book signing.

Besh is definitely worth the trek to S.F. A James Beard award winner, he owns four highly regarded restaurants in New Orleans: August, Besh Steak, La Provence and Lüke. He’s been profiled in just about every publication in the country and has appeared on just about every TV food show worth watching (“The Martha Stewart Show,” “Top Chef,” “Top Chef Masters,” “Iron Chef America” and “The Next Iron Chef,” to name a few). He’s also been very active in raising money for Hurricane Katrina victims.

The demo starts at noon.
