Star Chefs April Bloomfield and Marcus Samuelsson Headline Omnivore Books Dinners

Omnivore Books on Food is San Francisco's one-stop shop for culinary literature and celebrity chef readings/sightings, and next month owner Celia Sack is kicking it up a notch with two collaborative dinner events featuring acclaimed New York chefs Marcus Samuelsson and April Bloomfield at Oakland's Camino Restaurant (3917 Grand).

Samuelsson celebrates his book Yes, Chef: A Memoir with a three-course meal on July 11 at 6 p.m. His unique roots as an Ethiopian adoptee to a Scandinavian family in Sweden subtly informs the cooking at his international restaurants, diverse though they are; his businesses include soul food spot Red Rooster Harlem in New York, Norda and Street Food in Sweden, and Marc Burger in Chicago and Orange County.
