Mid-Week Menu: Charitable Doughnuts, Manly Sandwiches, and a Vegan Chef on the Move

Welcome to the Mid-Week Menu, our weekly roundup of East Bay food news.

1) Last week we got the sad news that Marion Cunningham, the iconic food writer and cookbook author, had died. She was 90 years old. Here in the Bay Area, many will recall her long friendship with Alice Waters, and the role that Cunningham played in helping to bring Chez Panisse into the national spotlight. Cunningham had Alzheimer’s disease, and to celebrate her life, Oakland’s Camino (3917 Grand Ave.) is donating the proceeds from each order of the doughnuts on their brunch menu — through this weekend — to the Alzheimer’s Association. The recipe is adapted from Cunningham’s Frannie Farmer Cookbook. There are three doughnuts in each $7 order.
