Narsai David– My Life in Food

Restaurateur, chef, wine maker, and author, Narsai David discusses his journey through the culinary world. In the San Francisco Bay Area, Narsai first worked with Henry Rubin and Ed Brown at Berkeley’s Potluck Restaurant and then launched a gastronome’s delight, Narsai's Restaurant, in Kensington. From 1972 until 1986, Narsai’s Restaurant, Market and Catering businesses were a culinary mecca for gourmet diners world-wide.

Narsai David is currently Food and Wine Editor for KCBS Radio in San Francisco.He hosts and makes celebrity appearances at gatherings around the world.  He has catered for many large-scale and prestigious events. Wherever he goes, his objective remains the same: to share the simple pleasures of cooking, good food, and wine.

To celebrate Ashby Village's 10th Anniversary, following Narsai David's presentation -- from 4:00-5:00 PM -- will be a wine and cheese reception and a silent auction of dinners for two in many of the East Bay's finest restaurants, hotel and bed and breakfast stays, and more!

Space is limited. Register early.

How to get there:

Accessible by AC Transit Bus #7

Driving Directions: 

From the Kensington “village” on Arlington Avenue
Drive north on Arlington less than a mile. Turn right on Cowper Avenue (at the miniature lighthouse) and take the third left onto Lawson Road, which will lead you right into the main church parking lot.

Please drive slowly (15 mph) as you approach the church.

From San Pablo Avenue, El Cerrito

From San Pablo Avenue, head east on Moeser Lane. Continue on Moeser Lane in the left hand lane about a 1 ½ mile drive up a very steep hill. Moeser Lane ends at Arlington Boulevard which will be your first stop sign. (There are tall, electrical towers and a sign for the “Unitarian Church” at this intersection.) Proceed across Arlington Boulevard (becomes Terrace on east side of Arlington).  Follow Terrace for one short block and take the first right on Craft, which is a dead-end street.  Look for a large sign for the church and turn left into the driveway.  Follow the drive up the hill on until you come to the parking lot by the main entrance to the church.
