Mark Ladner Is Doing A Gluten-Free Pasta Flyer Lunch At Drexel
This Friday, October 3rd, Mark Ladner–executive chef of New York’s Del Posto–will be giving a lecture at Drexel, starting at 11 a.m., at the Center for Hospitality and Sport Management’s Academic Bistro located on the 6th floor of the Paul Peck Problem Solving and Research building.
Sounds pretty dull, right? But wait, there’s more.
Ladner will be there to talk about his new kinda-pop-up-y gluten-free pasta concept, Pasta Flyer, which we have talked about before. But while, previous to this announcement, the best way to get a taste of Ladner’s new gluten-free pasta was to show up to Fork and pay $150 a head for a collaboration dinner between him and former Del Posto employee Eli Kulp, now there’s this Drexel lecture–at which Ladner will be serving lunch.
The lecture will be all about the Pasta Flyer concept and the importance of allergies in the food service world. The lunch will be all about tasting his gluten-free pasta and getting to sample all the varieties on the cheap. Pasta Flyer is aiming to offer quick-service Italian pasta dishes in the style of Japanese ramen houses–meaning fast and fresh and made-to-order. Also, of course, with no gluten. Because that, apparently, is one of the new frontiers of the food world. At least according to Ladner.
Anyway, if you’re interested, you should RSVP for the event to Emory McLeod at [email protected]. And for more info on Pasta Flyer, check out its website below.
