Cooking Events: The Foundry, Chef David, Chicks With Knives

foundryLots coming up on the cookery scene. Just a few things going on (and for even more, you should subscribe to Tasting Table LA)…:

The Foundry on Melrose with the Culinary Stage: World-class chef and all-around great guy (and Grilled Cheese Invitational Champion!) Eric Greenspan partners with comedienne Claire Berger for several edu-ma-cational AND funny evenings of entertaining, tasting & learning. August 2nd is “Picnic Baskets: Portable Pleasures”; August 16th is “Barbecue: Grilled Goodies”; plus two dates in September. Info

Cooking for a Date with Chef David: I’ve written up Chef David’s amazing “pop-up restaurant” events at beautiful private homes before, and lots of you guys enjoyed his dinners, so he’s now offering classes as well. It’s four hours on August 8th, whipping up delights like salmon with dill sauce, bacon-wrapped figs, fingerling potatoes with caramelized garlic, & lemon cake with creme fraiche & fresh berries. Contact him here to RSVP.

chickswithknivesChicks With Knives: Sustainable Supper Club: On August 23 this private supper club will convene at a cute private home for a sustainable, largely local (within 150 miles of LA), feast. This is an underground movable restaurant, so you’ll have to contact them to get the location. Previous menus have included Late Summer Gazpacho, Spinach Salad with Apples and Dates, Pork Loin with Chard and Cauliflower, and Figs with Sweet Cheese. Go here to contact CWK. I also included them in an article I wrote for Whole Life Times recently.
