On Artisan Food: Kim Severson, Chad Robertson, and Sue Conley

When: Wed., Mar. 2, 8 p.m.

Where: Herbst Theatre, 401 Van Ness (at Grove), 392-4400

Cost: $21

The rundown: The notion of artisan food wasn't invented in Northern California, but we did help pioneer the idea that small-scale, handmade foods could form the nucleus of a political movement. Wednesday, two local champions of that artisanal revival ― Tartine's Chad Robertson and Cowgirl Creamery's Sue Conley ― talk it out onstage in this City Arts and Lectures event, joined by New York Times Atlanta bureau chief and ex-San Franciscan Kim Severson. Afterwards, there'll be a book signing in the Herbst lobby with Robertson (Tartine Bread) and Severson (Spoon Fed), where you can fawn, schmooze, or just raise your fist in artisan solidarity.

Tickets through City Box Office
