Since we’ve been on a bit of an Instagram kick recently, we wanted to share what Townsend Wentz did last night. Wentz, who is the chef/owner of East Passyunk’s Townsend, was breaking down a whole pig for tonight’s Garces Foundation Gala and he instagrammed each step.
Click on through to follow the process, and check out the captions for some helpful hints.
By collaborating with Townsend Wentz at Townsend, the two will create an awesome pairing dinner, scheduled to take place on October 20th at 7 p.m.
For $75 a head, guests will enjoy five courses of chef Wentz’s much-praised French fare, complemented by rare and special wines from Forrester’s portfolio–and will have the opportunity to chat with the award-winning winemaker. So if that kind of thing gets you super-excited, now you know where to go.
Check out the five course tasting menu below, along with the wines that will be paired with each dish.
Today, OpenTable revealed its Top 100 restaurants “fit for foodies” in America. The list was determined by OpenTable’s analysis of more than five million reviews of more than 20,000 restaurants across the country. The list includes twelve restaurants from Philadelphia, the second most restaurants from one city, only Portland, Oregon had more.
The list includes a high concentration of restaurants from California, Oregon and Pennsylvania but not as many from traditional restaurant cities like Chicago (five restaurants), Los Angeles (five), New York (four) and San Francisco (one).
