A dinner built around simple, but focused cooking using ingredients and produce from the surrounding Chicago area! This dinner will be an 8-course tasting menu with a heavy focus on the in-season vegetables of late summer and early autumn. The menu is not vegetarian as it will include meat courses as well.
When: Sunday, September 16th. 7pm
Where: The Spice House in Old Town. 1512 N. Wells Street.
Depending on the weather the dinner will either be held in the back garden of The Spice House or right in the store itself. I will be treating your R.S.V.P as a reservation so please do your best on showing up to the Dinner. The cost of the dinner will be collected on the night of the event and if you find that you cannot make it, please give me fair warning so that I can fill the spots with other Diners. Thank you!
Myself: As for a little about myself; I have been working in professional kitchens for the past four years. I recently just moved to Chicago upon returning from living in Copenhagen, Denmark for two months. I was doing a short stage at Noma Restaurant in Copenhagen and studying the food and cooking culture of that area. Before leaving for Denmark I was living in Milwaukee and working at Sanford Restaurant under Justin Aprahamian. I spent the first two years of my cooking career working in Madison at Merchant Restaurant where I spent a great deal of time focusing on establishing relationships with local farmers and their products, as well as a strong focus on butchering and cooking with all parts of a vegetable or animal. I look forward to cooking for you.
