HEARding Cats’ 2014-15 season is here with great events on back to back nights! In the Mood for Food is a multidiscipline event combining the culinary, musical, and poetic arts, featuring Oakland, CA-based master-vegetarian chef, Philip Gelb. In addition to being a fantastic chef, Gelb is a top shakuhachi (Japanese flute) player. Several of us cats have been to Gelb’s loft in Oakland to experience his fine cuisine – and trust us – you don’t want to miss this!
Gelb maintains a blog with information on his cooking classes, and the popular food/music series he operates in Oakland. Photos and more info on Gelb’s work can be found here. An introductory video is available at this link.
FRIDAY, OCT. 24 – COOKING CLASS – Join Gelb for a special vegetarian cooking class at the Murphy Residence! Space is limited to 8 people, so contact firstname.lastname@example.org as soon as possible to make reservations.
Philip Gelb is a master vegan and vegetarian personal chef. Learn how to use high quality, fresh, local, seasonal and organic ingredients to create delightful, tasty and nutritious cuisine.

SATURDAY, OCT. 25 – DINNER & CONCERT – Join master chef Philip Gelb at the O’Donnell/Lum Residence for an evening of scrumptious vegetarian cuisine. Space is limited to 30 people, so contact email@example.com for reservations. The evening features dinner combined with a performance from artists Anna Lum (poet), Stefene Russell (poet), and Venus Slick (electronics).
