Weird Science: Ideas In Food Workshop/Dinner at Rittenhouse Tavern

Rittenhouse Tavern is normally closed on Mondays, but on July 23 the restaurant will be hosting a one-day-only culinary workshop and one-seating-only dinner hosted by chef Nick Elmi and featuring Alex Talbot and Aki Kamozawa of Ideas In Food.

The workshop (which runs for 6 hours, from 10am-4pm, and costs $250 per person) is meant primarily for chefs, culinary students and hardcore home-cooking food nerds, but will allow participants the use of the entire Rittenhouse Tavern space (including the kitchen) and give them access to Alex and Aki as they learn about the science of food and refine their own culinary ideas.

Following the workshop, there will be a separate dinner (with a 6pm seating and a $105 price tag, not counting tax or tip) where Elmi and the Ideas in Food crew will do a 7+ course dinner highlighting the ideas and techniques explored during the workshop.

Reservations aren’t required for either the workshop or the dinner, but they’re highly recommended. You can snag a space by calling the restaurant at 215-732-2412.
