There are "two" kitchens at Mozzeria. One is the Stefano Ferrara wood-burning oven in the middle of the restaurant where we cook our pizzas. The other kitchen is where we prepare pasta, small plates and desserts.
Bryan Baker designs and leads preparation of pasta and small plates. At Mozzeria since February, Bryan manned the stoves at some restaurants in his NYC hometown before relocating to San Francisco recently. He is a talented chef.
Everyone hired to work at Mozzeria quickly becomes part of the “Mozzeria family”. We would do anything for our family, and for that reason, Mozzeria is hosting a fundraiser this Thursday night for Bryan's charity.
Bryan will be walking on an 18-mile course during Out of the Darkness Overnight Walk, his chosen charity. The charity is all about raising awareness and prevention against suicide. Mozzeria will donate 10% of proceeds on Thursday night to Bryan's charity.
On his fundraising page, Bryan explains that he lost his brother and best friend, Scott to suicide. "Not a single day passes by without a thought or memory of him. Last year, I completed the overnight walk in New York, the experience was powerful, and the money went to a cause I greatly believe in."
On his dedication page to Scott, Bryan used this quote from Dean Karnazes: Run when you can, walk when you have to, crawl if you must, just never give up.
Let's us help Bryan meet his fundraising goal and protect everyone who are in same situation.
