Talking About Aperitifs at SF Chefs August 5th

During the forthcoming (and awesome) SF Chefs event, I'm speaking on a panel.

Prime Your Palate

August 5th, 11 - 12 AM, Westin St. Francis, San Francisco

Information and tickets here.

Join Fine Cooking’s Senior Editor Denise Mickelsen, libation expert Camper English of Alcademics.com and bar stars Neyah White and Brooke Arthur for a pre-tent palate priming. We’ll discuss (and taste!) a delicious category of drinks that many Americans are unaware or wary of—aperitifs.

These light, low-impact, before-dinner drinks are just the thing to prepare your taste buds for a full day of tasting. Don’t miss this lively discussion about what makes a great aperitif and which bars in San Francisco offer the best examples. Attendees will leave with a new understanding of aperitifs, some recipes to try out at home and a roaring appetite ready for San Francisco’s finest food.

We've already picked the three drinks we'll be serving during the hour:

  • Brooke Arthur's Sparkling Chrysanthemum
  • Neyah White's Japanese Whisky Highball
  • The classic Negroni Sbagliato
