The Main Public Library in Downtown San Francisco will be sponsoring a super great exhibition called "San Francisco Eats" that is dedicated to the joys of food! On display will be historical photographs, talks by cookbook writers and other panelists, Old-Time cooking gadgets, and other contributions San Francisco has made to the world of food. The event starts this evening (and runs through March 20, 2011) with what is called "Farm To Table" and as explained on the Library's website, "Investigates how local and organically grown produce shapes San Francisco cooking and dining.  Panelists include: Mark Sullivan, chef, Spruce; Dave Stockdale, Executive Director for CUESA (the organization behind the SF Farmer's Market at the Ferry Building); Sam Mogannam, owner of Bi-Rite Market; and Jeannette Ferrary, food writer and historian. The moderator will be Dava Guthmiller of Slow Food San Francisco. Speakers explore current food trends and how these trends shape and influence future dining in San Francisco, and on a national scale. This is a Green Stacks program." Other programs include films about food (they screen at noon), Chinese and vegetarian cooking, food carts, and how to make container gardens. There's even a podcast from the opening ceremonies.
