    Details on the Seattle Underground Dinner

    By Jennifer 8. Lee | March 20, 2008

    So I just got sent the info for the details of the very cool undergroundish Seattle dinner on March 30 hosted by Michael Hebberoy and (here is a piece on his roving restaurateuring)

    Here’s a summary:

    Books and dinner for $80, coordinated in large part by Kim Ricketts (yay)

    one pot + the fortune cookie chronicles + jerry traunfeld + xuan che = sunday
    march 30th.

    jennifer 8 lee – acclaimed nytimes metro reporter and author of the brand new
    non-fiction thriller the fortune cookie chronicles – there is much to be said
    about her remarkable piece of investigative journalism and the critics sometimes
    say it best.

    jerry traunfeld – former chef at the herbfarm and chef/owner of soon-to-open
    capitol hill establishment to be called “poppy” – I think jerry has won
    every award one can foist upon a chef and there is no doubt the man deserves the

    xuan che – the daughter of a chinese-american chef and a graduate of the
    california culinary academy, worked with jerry in the herbfarm’s kitchen, and
    now cooks at crush. xuan studied cooking in shanghai after winning the woman
    chefs and restaurateur’s barabara tropp scholarship.

    it should be quite an evening. expect a thoughtful menu by jerry and xuan, a signed copy of the book and at some point in the evening one pot will launch into spirited conversation with jennifer about her work. we will be tucked into a hidden but unbelievably beautiful capitol hill loft.

    6:30 p.m. $80/person – reservation info.
