Culinary Culture Swap: A Traveling Chef Series Dinner At Osteria

Marc Vetri, Jeff Michaud and their crew have friends all over the country. Chefs, purveyors, cookbook authors–they know lots of folks in the food biz. And being the hospitable sorts that they are, they occasionally have an urge to bring some of their buddies to town and cook a dinner with them.

Thus, the Traveling Chef Series. Each month, Osteria Philly will be hosting chefs from across the country who’ll come to town and cook up a collaboration dinner for guests. And to kick things off, they’re bringing in Andrew Ticer and Michael Hudman–the team behind Andrew Michael Italian Kitchen and Hog & Hominy in Memphis–who 1) have a new cookbook out called Collards & Carbonara, and 2) were the Food & Wine Best New Chefs for 2013. So, you know… The guys can probably cook.

And on February 25, they’re coming to Osteria to prove it with a collaboration dinner with Jeff Michaud and his team. There’ll be multiple courses of Southern-inflected Italian grub, paired wines, and everyone who comes will get a signed copy of Ticer and Hudman’s new book. Tickets for the event are $125, and even though they just went up for sale yesterday, you’ll probably want to jump on this one fairly quickly because it’ll probably fill up fast.
