On Sunday, Michael Bauer was one of 24 invited guests at a fancy manse in Tiburon where acclaimed young Chinese chef Yo Bo (whom Cecilia Chiang called China’s Corey Lee) cooked a lavish 33-course banquet on dishware he brought over from China himself. Bauer says the night was “one of those events that blossoms on reflection, and an experience that will stay fresh in my mind for years.” Then he shares with us his iPhone documentation of the entire thing, just to make us all sadder we weren’t there.
