Last night @wckitchen cooked a heart warming delicious dinner to honor the firefighters. The team of volunteers was led by Chef Elsa @elsacorrigan. Just after we invited them to dinner and thanked them, the Chief quieted the room and gave every member of WCK an honorary pin showing gratitude for the work they do by showing up, and endlessly feeding everyone during the fires. It was a very moving moment to witness this kind of genuine care go back and forth between such humble, kind people. 🙏

Because of great care from Firefighters and many diverse and remarkable team efforts, the space that housed thousands is cleared. Cooking with @wckitchen to feed the evacuees, Firefighters and all who built the pop up community was soulful. Everyone who showed up cared for those in need and for each other. At this time of divide in our beautiful homeland, many of us felt direction, goodness, and love.

These are not Halloween costumes. They are fire fighters heading for the trucks. World Central Kitchen fed them and every person involved in the evacuation and fire suppression.
Tomorrow is lighter because they contained the fire and most have gone home. The efforts paid off and not one life was lost. Again: Firefighters are heroes!!!!

So much to feel, see, take in at the Evacuation Center in Sonoma. The most moving part is centered around kindness and sharing of everything and anything. The volunteers and staff of World Central Kitchen give unconditionally to those in need and each other. Walking through the pop up city where the displaced have a cot in a large room, a few belongings, their pets, it seems most have a smile to share, look you in the eye and say hello. The lessons of goodness and gratitude during this time of despair are everywhere.

It was touching and lively at this volunteer Hair Cutting pop up salon. A group of awesome women were playing old rock music. Just outside the temporary shower stations they were making people feel beautiful!

There is much to learn here. But the most evident is: Love thy Neighbor and open your heart to all.

Thrilled to be regarded as one of the Bay Area's Best 50 restaurants according to the food writers at The Mercury News...

"Long before organic was cool, Cool was organic. That’s chef-owner Jesse Ziff Cool, who for four decades has espoused a philosophy of seasonal, organic cooking at her flagship Flea Street Cafe in Menlo Park. Meals here start with the restaurant’s legendary little buttermilk biscuits, giving you time to ponder the menu.

Herbs and vegetables from her own garden as well as the restaurant’s star in the appetizers and entrees. Flea Street’s serene dining rooms, long a favorite of Peninsula natives, have been discovered by new Silicon Valley residents, so be sure to make reservations."

FarmAid in Wisconsin where dairy farmers are greatly struggling. This organization raises funds that go directly to struggling SMALL farmers. FarmAid also has a hotline for farmers...suicide is a common reason they call in because of utter despair.
I learned a lot (besides dancing and GREAT music).
They move the concert each year to address the demise in different parts of the country. This year it is Wisconsin and the problems faced by OUR Dairy Farmers.
Give as a good American to those farmers left who still make so little and give us so much.

I took this picture last night moments after asking Sergio, one of our veteran front of the house team members, if he'd be willing to step back into the kitchen to support our dishwasher during the hectic, weekend dinner service.

Keep in mind, the dishwasher position is easily the least desirable and most physically grueling job in the restaurant. Without hesitation, he switched out of his dress shirt and apron and into a kitchen uniform, all the while sporting a smile that lit up the whole room.

The world needs more Sergios...

Today is the 39th Anniversary of Flea Street. It’s kind of small but this is a photo of one of the first menus from the early 80’s.
All of us are amazed at how the years went by. Thank you to every guest who, at our tables, celebrated life and permeated the walls of Flea Street with love and inspiration!
We are Ever Grateful to our staff, some who have been with us for over 20 years. And thank our mentors and heroes, the Farmers, Ranchers, Fishermen, Wine Makers, Dairies who have given us organic, local, respectfully raised ingredients that continue to inspire our cooking. Please stop by tonight or throughout the weekend for a glass of Sparkling 🥂 or a Martini and let us toast you🍸!
