Joanne Weir To Host a Tequila-Drenched Dinner and Book Event in Palo Alto

​Here's a cookbook event with a thirst-quenching twist. This Thursday, Palo Alto restaurant Reposado (236 Hamilton at Ramona) will host a special tequila chef-author dinner with TV personality Joanne Weir. She's the author of 17 cookbooks, hosts the TV series Joanne Weir's Cooking Class, and was recently spotted at opening night of SF Chefs.Food.Wine. (she joined a panel on heirloom tomatoes the next day).

Thursday's four-course dinner comes with what's being called a "special" tequila cocktail, Don Julio vertical tequila tasting, tax, tip, and a signed copy of Weir's book, Tequila: Types, Flights, Cocktails and Bites. Tickets are $88 per person ($155 for couples), and the event is cosponsored by Kepler's Books, The American Institute of Wine & Food, and The Luncheon Society. For reservations, call Kepler's at (650) 324-4321.

The proposed menu includes:

  • Chorizo empanadas and pineapple carpaccio with prawn and pepper salad

  • Gazpacho with drunken prawns

  • Choice of entrĂ©e: bamboo salmon with mango-avocado salsa, grilled tequila chicken breast with black bean and corn salsa, or carne asada verde (skirt steak with a tequila-chipotle-tomatillo salsa)

  • Tequilamisu
