Special guest will be Marcy Masumoto, reading between courses from her recent cookbook and from her husband, David "Mas" Masumotos' writings! This is a first in the history of our underground restaurant series to have a reader. We usually feature world renowned musicians and this will be the first in a new part of our underground dining experiences, featuring readers in between courses.
For many years, we have presented a menu featuring the Sun Crest heirloom peach grown by one of California's farming treasures, the Masumoto Family Farm. This organic farm has been producing some of the finest heirloom varieties peaches or 4 generations! The Masumoto farm is an extraordinary piece of living history of Japanese American culinary and farming expertise. Every peach coming from the farm is a work of art!
