tartine afterhours.

you may or may not have noticed my obsession with tartine bakery's bread. i know i'm not alone in thinking it's the best bread in this country, and perhaps beyond.

so when i had the amazing honor of spending a day with chad and his bakers nate and lori recently, i started to dream about finding a way to work with them to make and share the foods we love with the community.

after many frantic emails filled with exclamation points and OMGs over the past month, we are thrilled to announce:

tartine afterhours.

a monthly series of family-style dinners at tartine bakery
complete with music, wine & cameraderie

the details:

who: the fab folks at tartine (and me)
what: a (vegetarian) three-course family-style fixed menu
where: tartine bakery (600 guerrero st. sf, ca)
when: wednesday, may 12 at 8pm

to reserve: we are full for this dinner. thanks so much for your interest and support! we'll be adding a second seating and perhaps some outdoor tables starting in june, so there will be twice as much room for all of our friends! thanks again!  please join the mailing list by entering your name in the box on the sidebar to receive notice of our next dinner and enter the lottery.


  1. Totally love this Samin!

  2. Sounds fabulous - email sent, fingers crossed for a confirmation.

  3. I sure do wish I could be there...Have fun with Chad and Elisabeth!

  4. Might try brown paper bag tickets or whatever 18 Reasons uses? Might be complicated getting tickets this way.

  5. hi malebe,
    thanks for the idea--we might do that next time, but for now we've already sold out and this seems to have worked!

  6. hey, this sounds amazing! Can't wait for the next event, I'd love to get a seat at a table where you are cooking!

    (also I sent you a msg on your yahoo acct too....)

    Miss you and your delicious food!

  7. hi samin, i managed to get a loaf of tartine's olive bread last week . . . complex tanginess and shatteringly crusty. however, i like to think that the bread we make here on the east coast is just as good, if not better! when you come to boston, i'll give you a tour of clear flour bread -- we might just win you over. however, i wish i could be there for that tartine event; nuts!

  8. Awesome samin!!! you are rockin it! Go girly.
