Berkeley Int'l Food Fest- Schedule?

I know the Berkeley International Food Festival is this Sunday afternoon, but I can't seem to find a schedule for the cooking demonstrations. Has anyone come across this? I've searched high and low with no luck.
The Kitchen On Fire guys are supposedly doing 5 hours of demos with local chefs and what not.
The Spanish Table is cooking a giant paella at noon, but that is in their store.
Last year was a lot of fun. I just wish I knew when to show up. Guess I'll just have to hang out all afternoon, nibbling and shopping.

  1. I saw a schedule taped to a lightpole last week--I thought it was strange that that was the only place I had seen any details. Unfortunately, I can't remember any of those details, but the website has some information:
    Though it only says the Cooking on Fire demostrations go all day... I think the marketing budget must be extremeley low, to non-existent--I was surprised they had not put a listing in the Express (even the Laurel neighborhood festival has an ad in there), but I have not checked the Berkeley Daily Crank to see if there was an ad.

      The --ahem-- Planet has a front page story about the festival as well as an ad. Neither gives much information about when things are happening, though. You can read the story online.
