Studio Gourmet–the city’s hottest cooking series returns later this month with a live demo from Jason Berthold of RN74 (301 Mission Street)

Brad Lev hosts this monthly Q & A and tasting that has created a significant buzz in the San Francisco dining scene. What makes the event so special is that aside from seeing some of your favorite local chefs do work in the kitchen, you also get an in-depth sense of what inspired these culinary artisans to fuse the flavors and create the dishes that led to them to the top.

Jason Berthold will come to Circolo (500 Florida Street) on February 28th, starting at 5:30pm, to exhibit some of his seasonal sensations. Also on hand will be Master Sommelier Cathering Falling, also known as the “Grape Goddess.” The highly-revered wine expert will be pairing special vintages to match the tastings provided by Chef Berthold.

Tickets are still available here for $35, but you can also take advantage of a Valentine’s Day Special, which gets you a pair of tickets for $60 dollars and includes 2 glasses of champagne with your dining experience. Considering the breadth of food, drink and knowledge that is doled out here, Studio Chefs isn’t just one of the most exciting culinary events in the Bay Area, it’s also one of the best bargains you can find in fine-dining, anywhere.
