Samin Nosrat Organizing Sprawling Bakesale for Japan on April 2

A little over a year ago, Samin Nosrat managed to raise some $23,000 in quake relief for Haiti via three bay-spanning bake sales. Sadly, Nosrat finds herself organizing a similar effort for Japan. On her blog, the Pop-Up General Store cofounder and Tartine Afterhours chef is calling all bakers to donate for what promises to be at least a three-location fundraiser on Sat., April 2, 10 a.m.-2 p.m. Just like last year, Nosrat plans to host sales at Pizzaiolo in Oakland, Gioia Pizzeria in Berkeley, and at Bi-Rite Market in the Mission, and in a tweet this morning, Nosrat revealed she's seeking to line up venues in Marin and on the Peninsula. Check out the bake sale's Facebook page, iCalendar the events, and if you're handy with a muffin tin, contact Nosrat at to donate.
