This is no ordinary dinearound; the event is billed as an opportunity to glean cooking tips from the best in the local restaurant industry. In advance of the first tasting (Friday from 7-10:30 pm), we went inside the kitchens with three talents on the lineup: Uno Immanivong of Chino Chinatown, Kirstyn Brewer of Victor Tangos and Anthony Van Camp of Ser Steak + Spirits.
In this video, each chef walks us through a trick of their trade, whether it’s a fast way to whip up fresh Asian Thai salsa, how to properly rest and slice meat, or a quick-and-dirty home cook’s version of sous vide. You don’t need fancy equipment or a culinary degree to make these things happen in your own kitchen. Just listen to their words of wisdom.
In addition to these three, chefs like Dean Fearing, Abraham Salum, Jeff Harris and Brian Zenner cook in open kitchens, offering advice along the way during four distinct dining sessions. Yes, attendees get to eat these chefs’ creations, as well as sample dishes from other participating restaurants and partake in proposed beer and wine pairings or a craft cocktails.
