This Thursday, I am partnering with singer/songwriter Clare Burson to present Silver and Ash, an historic tale told through music and food. It’s a two hour event with four courses of food and live performance. Tickets are selling out fast, so mosey over to the events page to read more details, or buy tickets here.
The courses in the Silver and Ash menu are inspired by Burson’s family history and the geographical journey her story takes. Each course has a tale of its own which will be revealed the night of the event. The recipes come from period sources, including The Settlement Cookbook, an early 20th century American cookbook that catalogs ethnic Jewish and German cuisines.
A sneak peek at the menu to entice you:
The First Course: The Gastronomic Origins of Our Story
Farmer’s Cheese with Pickled Cherry Tomato and Vodka Shot
The Second Course: A Girlhood in Germany
Beer-Braised Schaller & Weber Beef Wiener with German Potato Salad
The Third Course: A New Life in Tennessee
Finast Chicken Pie
The Fourth Course: How Our Story Comes to an End
Helga’s Homemade Almond Pound Cake with Fresh Cherry Compote and Whipped Cream
The event, inside the gorgeous Henry Street Settlement, will be an unforgettable experience. This week I’ll be posting the inside scoop on all the historic goodies the attendees will get to consume. And don’t miss you chance to be a part of the action: get your tickets now!
