With Chef Nelson German

NELSON GERMAN, alaMar, Sobre Mesa, Oakland, CA

Nelson German cooked in the high-class kitchens of his native Manhattan before decamping to Oakland, where he opened seafood hotspot alaMar. He has since presented his unique flavors and California cuisine at events up and down the West Coast as well as in Mexico City. His Afro-Latino cocktail bar, Sobre Mesa, is an ode to his Latin American roots and his chosen home of Oakland, featuring vibrant flavors, cocktail demos, and cooking classes.
