As the days lengthen and the weather warms, the region’s farmers are making the gradual transition from spring into summer. And on Thursday, June 8th, farm-to-table paragon Fork is celebrating with a night of seasonal gin cocktails from Elverson, Pa.-based Brandywine Branch Distillers.
In May of 2015, chef Eli Kulp of Fork and High Street on Market, was hurt in the deadly Amtrak train derailment that killed eight people and injured more than 200. He was mostly paralyzed, but has been doing rehab ever since, working a lot with doctors at the Cleveland Functional Electrical Stimulation Center who are developing technologies which allow people with neurological injuries to regain function.
That kind of thing? It’s expensive. Which is why a bunch of Kulp’s chef friends, along with a few local luminaries, are hosting a benefit dinner with Karamoor Estate winery (which has done some work with Kulp and Ellen Yin’s High Street Hospitality Group before) in order to raise money for the Institute for Functional Restoration at Case Western Reserve University, which the Cleveland FES calls home.
