We wanna send you to see Jeremiah Tower!
When Jeremiah Tower rolled into town he was a 30-year-old privileged, arrogant and Harvard graduate with a degree in architecture. He had absolutely no formal culinary education. After his grandfather died, he soon found himself broke and in 1972’s California applying for a gig at Alice Waters’ Chez Panisse. Within a year he was an equal partner.
In 1984, Tower opened his own restaurant, Stars, in San Francisco. It was an overnight sensation. He inspired a generation of chefs that include: Mario Batali, Tim Grable, Emily Luchetti and Jerry Traunfeld. The restaurant was among the top-grossing restaurants in the United States for close to a decade. Tower went on to win a James Beard Award as the best chef in America, hosted a PBS Series and opened restaurants in Singapore and Hong Kong. He holds a degree in architecture from Harvard.
Come hear his both witty and serious thoughts on manners in 2016—at the dinner party, the bar or in your own home. Tower has advice on everything: food allergies, RSVPs, iPhones, running late, thank-yous, restaurant etiquette, even what to do when you are served something disgusting.
