Tacolicious was born five years ago at the Thursday farmers market at the Ferry Plaza. The market remains one of the brightest spots on our weekly calendar – a colorful collection of local produce, farmers and vendors all in one of the most idyllic locations this side of…anywhere. This Thursday, CUESA (Center for Urban Education about Sustainable Agriculture) celebrates the fifth anniversary of the Thursday farmers market and we kick off our fifth annual Guest Chef Series at our Ferry Plaza Farmers Market stand.
The Guest Chef Series directly benefits CUESA through a 100-percent donation from the sale of the tacos made by our guest chefs. In past years, our talent to taco ratio has been exceptional. Chris Kostow of Meadowood, Craig Stoll of Delfina, and Michael Tusk of Quince, just to name a few, have all joined us to sling tacos for the CUESA cause. This year, the talent to taco ratio is no different. On Thursday, Richie Nakano of Hapa Ramen is making Tacos Revuleta with pork carnitas, braised skin, and pickled pig ears, the very same ones that helped him win the Prince of Porc title at this year’s Cochon 555.
