Back in the Day: A Collaboration Dinner with Chef Jude

Berkeley, Berkeley


Pop-up space
Banquet (20+ Guests)
For this dinner series, I'll be collaborating with chefs that have I have cooked with in the past or that I've worked closely with. We'll be featuring and highlighting our interpretations of dishes that stood out most during our childhood. We're starting off this dinner series with Chef Jude Bautista. Born and raised in the Bay Area, Jude is inspired by his family that cooked large meals for parties and those long nights before holidays preparing some of his favorite dishes from his Filipino culture. All that time in the kitchen helped him find his passion at a young age. Following his dream of becoming a chef, he attended culinary school right after graduating high school. He spent years studying under great chefs that helped create a pathway to his career as a corporate chef during the day and helping host food events in the evening. He's looking forward to the opportunity to share his passion and tell his story through his food creations.
