“Something smells delicious.” So begins the event description for 826 Valencia’s latest adult writing seminar. They’ve managed to get the likes of Amanda Hesser, former New York Times Magazine food editor and cofounder of the culinary blog food52.com, and Daniel Patterson, executive chef at Coi, to teach people how to turn a love for food into a love of writing about food.

Plus, Patterson will be preparing an array of small plates for attendees, because as we know here at Mission Loc@l, you can build up a mean appetite writing.

Coi, in North Beach, was re-awarded two Michelin stars yesterday for culinary excellence.

The seminar takes place November 7 and costs $100. All proceeds go directly to support the free student programming at 826 Valencia. Find out more on the event page.
