Rittenhouse Tavern will host a creative culinary workshop and special one-seating-only dinner with Alexander Talbot and Aki Kamozawa of the popular website and book “Ideas In Food” on Monday, July 23rd.
Rittenhouse Tavern, which is normally closed on Mondays, will host the six-hour hands-on workshop from 10AM to 4PM allowing access to the entire restaurant (kitchen included) in hopes that participants will be inspired to take innovative and resourceful approaches to food and find a focus when developing dishes. The workshop, which is $250 per person, is geared towards chefs, culinary students and at-home-cooks that are curious to explore and learn more about food, while utilizing Talbot and Kamozawa as resources for refining their ideas. Lunch will also be served for workshop participants.
Separately, Executive Chef Nicholas Elmi will team up with the duo to prepare a special 7+ course dinner that evening with one exclusive seating at 6PM for $105 per person (not including tax and gratuity). The dinner will highlight the ideas and techniques utilized in the workshop, guaranteed to pique the interest of chefs and food lovers alike. Reservations are recommended but not required for both the workshop and dinner.
“We’re excited to welcome Alexander and Aki to Rittenhouse Tavern,” says Executive Chef, Nicholas Elmi. “I've known the two of them for years and we frequently bounce ideas off each other. It's important for chefs to never stop learning and this workshop will allow everyone the opportunity to openly discuss their ideas and develop recipes with a new perspective in a creative atmosphere.”
