Inforum, the division of the Commonwealth Club "by and for people in their 20s and 30s," is presenting a program that (adult) children of all ages can appreciate. Moderated by Jessica Battilana of 7x7, "The State of Pastry in SF" will bring together maverick sweet chefs Luis Villavelazquez (Absinthe), Elizabeth Falkner (Citizen Cake), William Werner (Quince), and Bill Corbett (Michael Mina) to survey their different directions in dessert as well as discuss the current cravings of the city.

"The State of Pastry in SF" begins with the panel discussion at 6:30 p.m. and will be followed by the all-important tasting and networking reception at 7:30 p.m. on Tuesday, December 1. Admission is $20 ($12 Commonwealth Club members).

    The San Francisco Street Food Festival was another success this year. Dozens of vendors with original, unheard-of creations, such as deep fried mac and cheese on a stick, black pea paste pancakes, and Korean quesadillas. Then there was the comfort foods we've grown accustomed to, like creme bruleé, shrimp rolls, and pound cake. Photographs by Mabel Jimenez.
