Uchiba presents Uncommon Ramen Series: Callie Speer
Chef Alex Astrani of Uchibā, Tyson Cole’s new bar concept featuring specialty cocktails and sharable plates inspired by classic Asian flavors, will collaborate with Chef Callie Speer of Austin’s Holy Roller to create a ramen dish for the first installment of the 2018 Uncommon Ramen series.
Inspired by nostalgic foods, Speer’s whimsical and inventive pastry creations are favorites among critics and diners alike. A 2013 Food & Wine Magazine “People’s Best New Pastry Chef” nominee and a 2015 Culturemap “Pastry Chef of the Year” award-winner, Speer helped craft the pastry and bread programs for the Hotel van Zandt and the pastry program for Chameleon Group. Her new venture, Holy Roller, is Speer’s first chance to express the savory side of her talents and serves as an avenue for all of her “weird little ideas” to come alive in one place.
A portion of the proceeds will go to Promise of Peace Gardens.
