Provence In Berkeley | Kermit Lynch??
I found out yesterday that Kermit Lynch and the Cafe Fannie are going to have another one of their parking lot feasts on Saturday. I've seen them before, but have yet to attend. Just wondering if anyone has gone to one of the Provence events and can tell us what to expect in terms of food and wine offerings?? I understand they'll have pots of bouillabaisse, will there be anything else? Do you need reservations?

I went there late to make up for a disappointing lunch at Spice of Life. The large, halved sandwich was Becker Lane spit-roasted pork with a caponata -like garnish (no eggplant) and it was great. The pork itself was tender although not particularly flavorful. The sandwich was made by the inclusion of good porky belly fat and a generous portion of crispy skin. I hadn't realize that bits of skin would be in there, so asked for some on the side. I was in pork fat heaven. Yes, spendy at $15, but well worth it. The sandwich was very big and the 2nd half still tasted great 4 hours later.
The event was primarily a wine event, but there were also Cafe Fanny desserts, including an enticing bittersweet chocolate tart. All the shops were open when I left shortly after 3.
