Stop by the CUESA Classroom for a cooking demo featuring the seasonal bounty of the Ferry Plaza Farmers Market.
Acquerello’s co-owner and Executive Chef, Suzette Gresham, has led an incredibly accomplished career, receiving countless awards and accolades. Her achievements, however, have never deterred her from the ultimate goal as a chef—to make her guests happy. Originally from San Carlos, California, Gresham’s interest in food and cooking came from a long line of culinary history and heritage within her family. Starting at a young age, Gresham worked alongside her French grandmother in the garden and learned the principles of growing her own fruits and vegetables, as well as techniques in canning and preserving fresh produce. Gresham’s enthusiasm in the kitchen and tenacious personality led to the opening of Acquerello with business partner Giancarlo Paterlini in July 1989. Since that time Gresham has gone on to earn a Michelin Star every year since 2007.
All demos take place in the CUESA Classroom (under the white tents in front of the Ferry Building) and are free to the public, with recipes and samples for all.
