      About Devon Junkin

      Devon Junkin started cooking for his friends when he was a teenager, and in his early 20’s he made the decision to attend culinary school at Le Cordon Bleu in San Francisco. After meeting his pastry-chef wife, Taylor during a stint at San Diego’s Laurel, he moved with her to Chicago to explore new techniques and gather experience in the traditions of classic bistro cooking. While there, he worked as Sous Chef at Duchamp, and later, as Chef de Cuisine at Takashi, where he was inspired by the attention to detail and high expectations of the culinary team. He returned to San Diego eager to bring home the knowledge he had gained and excited to have access to the area’s bounty of beautiful produce and seafood.

      His love of music and art combine with his appreciation of precise technique to create something personal, which appeals to the senses, crafted with honesty and respect. His style of cooking is clean, simple and flavorful, and he is not afraid of butter.

      About Ruhstaller Beer

      Captain Frank Ruhstaller was California’s Premier Pioneer Brewer. He embodied the Spirit of California, partnering with local hop and barley farmers to grow the finest ingredients for his beers.

      131 years later, Ruhstaller remains committed to the Captain’s legacy. Our beer is made with California hops and barley, grown by farmers we know and trust like Dave & Dia Utterback of the historic Signorotti Hop Ranch in Sloughhouse.

      When you enjoy a Ruhstaller, you experience the rich, nuanced flavors only California Grown ingredients can deliver.

      From event website:

      Bring a bottle of your favorite LOCAL beer or wine to share with others, then mingle while you share and talk about your beer! YOU MUST RSVP for this event!

      Simply Local is a A Local Merchant Marketplace filled with locally owned businesses all under one roof! Now accepting applications for vendors:
      www.SimplyLocalSanDiego.com

      WHAT IS GREENDRINKS:
      Every month people who work in the environmental field meet up at informal sessions known as GreenDrinks.

      We have a lively mixture of people from NGOs, academia, government and business. Come along and you’ll be made welcome. Just say, “are you green?” and we will look after you and introduce you to whoever is there. It’s a great way of catching up with people you know and also for making new contacts. Everyone invites someone else along, so there’s always a different crowd, making Green Drinks an organic, self-organizing network.

      These events are very simple and unstructured, but many people have found employment, made friends, developed new ideas, done deals and had moments of serendipity. It’s a force for the good and we’d like to help it spread to other cities.

      Hope to see you at the next one!

    1. A Thousand Plates Event (all-day)
      Feb 19 – Mar 26

      A Thousand Plates: An Art Exhibition about food

      A Thousand Plates explores the topic of food as a means to question society by examining traditions across cultures and throughout the centuries. The exhibition will examine food as a fundamental need, modern food production and its relationship to the environment, the culture of eating and its relationship to memory.

      Our exhibition title refers to Deleuze and Guattari’s “A Thousand Plateaus: Capitalism and Schizophrenia”—a philosophical text written with a rhizomatic structure—where connections between ideas and references defy linear, structural, or casual relations. Every point can conceptually link to somewhere else. In our view, our relationship to food is similar. The production, consumption, distribution and marketing of food is connected to tradition, culture, individual and social taste as well as healthcare, environmental issues, and global politics that shape the contemporary society.

      The SDSU School of Art and Design will be presenting a juried art exhibition of student and faculty work investigating food as the conceptual theme for SDSU’s Downtown Gallery. Works will explore the topic of food as a means to explore society by examining traditions across cultures and centuries. The exhibition will examine food as a fundamental need, modern food production and its relationship to the environment, and the culture of eating and memory.

      Dates: February 19 -March 26, 2015
      Time:  11 a.m. – 4 p.m.
      Location:  SDSU Downtown Gallery
      Repeats:  Every week on Sunday, Monday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday

      Opening Reception:  March 12, 2015

      Participant Comments

      “I am a scientist and have a Ph.D in molecular/microbiology, but I am a mom first. When I came to my son’s 2nd grade class and found that the ‘science’ kids were doing consisted of making dinosaur dioramas, I knew the school needed to do more. I wanted elementary school students to be exposed to true, hands-on science. I chose Life Lab to fill the void because the science was sound. The Life Lab program provides true experiments for students and inspires in them a love of science.” – Volunteer Garden Coordinator near San Diego, CA
