On Saturday February 16th at 2pm, Ethiopian inspired flavors will flow through Macy's Cellar when Radio Africa and Kitchen's Chef Eskender spills his secrets for tasty, seasonal, well-balanced dishes.
Chef Eskender Aseged, originally from Ethiopia, arrived in San Francisco in the late 80's when he began a 20 year stint working with luminary chefs such as Jeremiah Tower, Joyce Goldstein, Nancy Oaks, Daniel Peterson and Daniel Humm. During this time, inspired by these great chefs, he began experimenting with different food preparations of his own.
In the Fall of 2004, Eskender started his first "pop up" restaurant right in his own home - serving meals to small groups of friends. Eventually these pop ups expanded to a variety of Bay Area cafés over the course of the next seven years.
Now, Chef Eskender's restaurant, Radio Africa & Kitchen, is an anchor business in San Francisco's Bayview neighborhood. Located on 3rd and Oakdale on the ground floor of the newly constructed 5800 Third, the restaurant has quickly become a local favorite.
Come to Bayview to discover Radio Africa & Kitchen, or stop by Macy's Cellar to learn how Eskender crafts seasonal, nutritionally well-balanced meals from organic vegetables, greens, grains, nuts, wild fish, shellfish and fruit, and fine herbs and spices.
