You don’t have to be in the restaurant industry to appreciate what chef Eli Kulp and his team are doing on “Friends & Family” Tuesdays over at High Street on Market. Kulp is transforming what is normally a quiet evening for restaurants through collaboration with local farms and bloggers in a series of dinners that are as informative as they are delicious.
The format started with a series of cheese dinners featuring local cheesemakers curated by blogger Tenaya Darlington, alias Madame Fromage. Next up was fermentation blogger Amanda Feifer, from Phickle, and a series of dinners (one of which is left, by the way, on June 17th) focusing on fermentation as a means of transforming and preserving foods in cuisines from Eastern Europe and Russia, East Asia and South Asia.
Now, local canning blogger and food preservation maven Marisa McClellan of Food in Jars has announced that she, too, will be collaborating with the High Street team on a series of three dinners focusing on preserves like jams, pickles and chutneys made from seasonal ingredients.
The first event, featuring spring produce like ramps, rhubarb, and strawberries, is scheduled for 9:00 on June 3rd and the following two are July 22nd and September 30th. McClellan will speak briefly before each meal about the process of preserving and since the events are spaced throughout the growing season you can expect to see real diversity in each menu.
$25 per person (beverages, tax and gratuity not included)
Service begins at 9:00
