Holiday times mean dessert times in any way, shape, or form. And when it comes to dessert, there are few people as talented as Chef Emily Luchetti.
As the executive chef of Waterbar and Farallon restaurants in the city, an author, AND a James Beard Board member, Chef Emily is a true professional. She is even participating in Dandelion Chocolate’s 12 Nights of Chocolate for a pop-up chocolate party tonight!
Snag tickets here, and read on for an interview I was lucky enough to have with her on the world of pastry:
When the weather turns cold, it’s time to follow the sun and make another work+pleasure trip to the town that is Santa Barbara. Just like last time, there was delicious food to be had and fantastic company to eat it all with. It makes me feel so fortunate to live in a state where I can enjoy beachside living so readily, especially when the temperature is dipping below 40 degrees in the city by the bay.
The only thing about SB is that I invariably up feeling like this by the end:
It’s time for another roundup for eating and drinking events in the Bay Area this weekend! I’m currently soaking up the sun (or whatever is left of it) in Santa Barbara, so sadly I can’t attend any of these. If you go, I’d love to hear a recap! Just make sure to strap on your gloves/hat/scarf/seven layers of clothing because it’s a tad nippy noodles out there.
Don’t forget to stay in the holiday spirit with some delicious desserts. Check out some favorites here and here.

I don’t know why I’ve been on the crispy cookie train lately, but I’m into it, especially when those cookies are literally overflowing with holiday cheer. And ESPECIALLY-especially when those cookies are the size of my face.
