I sometimes wish I could clone myself, because then I could attend this cool dinner to be hosted by chef Kory Stewart of ~AMERICANO~ Restaurant at Hotel Vitale. The event is on Sunday April 17th, and guest chef Michael Tuohy of Grange Restaurant and forager and author Connie Green of Wine Forest Wild Foods will both be in the house.
The five-course Sunday supper will include dishes featuring wild ingredients, like yellowtail crudo with oxalis, sauvignon blanc agrodolce, radish, sea beans, and spruce tip oil; nasturtium tagliatelle with morels, slow-cooked egg, guanciale, and wild mushroom brodetto; lightly cooked California king salmon with wild fennel salsa verde, spring vegetables, and ramps; and roasted Paine Farms squab with ramp and squab confit hash cake, braised wild mustard, and elderberry jus. $65; $90 with wine and cocktails paired with each course. Reservations are required: 415-278-3777. 5pm: cocktails and antipasti on the patio (weather permitting); 5:45pm: dinner (communal seating).
