San Francisco-based Greens Restaurant, one of the country’s first vegetarian fine-dining establishments, is gearing up to celebrate 30 years in business. Founded in 1979 by the San Francisco Zen Center, Greens specializes in cuisine prepared with locally sourced, seasonal ingredients. At a gala on April 10, the Zen Center will honor Chef Annie Somerville’s career, which includes authoring two cookbooks and penning works for publications such as Gourmet, Ladies Home Journal, and Food and Wine. The keynote addresses will be delivered by local-food advocate and cookbook author Deborah Madison and Resource Renewal Institute founder and president, Huey Johnson. Proceeds from the reception go toward organic and environmental education.
