Earlier this month, Daniel Patterson won the James Beard Award for the Best Chef in the West. The restaurateur made a name for himself when he opened his first restaurant at the age of 25. Since then he has opened a number of establishments, including Coi in San Francisco, a two-star Michelin restaurant, and Plum and Haven in Oakland. He joins us to talk about Northern California cuisine, his philosophy on food and why he's re-launching one of his Oakland restaurants.

Host: Michael Krasny


  • Daniel Patterson, chef and owner of Coi; his other restaurants include Alta in San Francisco and Ume, Plum Bar and Haven in Oakland
