Dean & Deluca Hosting International Chefs Dinner on June 5th
Restaurant Traffic received this event notification over the wires, “The Dean & Deluca at Phillips Place is holding an International Chefs dinner on Wednesday, June 5th. The dinner will take place at the newly opened Wine Room, and will showcase the cuisine of international chefs visiting from Dean & Deluca’s markets around the world, including Japan, the Middle East, Turkey, Thailand, Singapore, and the U.S. The dinner is priced at $250 per person including wine and beer pairings and dessert, reservations are available by calling the Charlotte store at (704) 643-1664.”
Sarah McGraw of McGraw Photography took a picture of the renovated Wine Room and I’m eager to go check out the makeover. During high school and college I worked for the catering department at Dean & Deluca, and I consider that job the origins of my interest in all things food related. Sure Dean & Deluca charges a premium for the provisions and housewares they sell but I can also attest they strive to offer the best quality to accompany those hefty price tags. This International Chefs Dinner is no exception to the haute cuisine business model that has established Dean & Deluca among the upper echelon of food purveyors.
Here is a sneak peak at the menu for June 5th:
Appetizer: Fennel-dusted veal sweetbreads with crispy pancetta and trumpet mushrooms; green lentils with fresh pasta and pomegranate molasses.
Salad: Asian Marinated Strip Steak Salad
Entrees: Lobster takaki with tempura corn; braised lamb shank with aubergine puree; weeping tiger beef(WTF!)
Dessert: Buttermilk panna cotta with edge hill honey, stonefruit, and pine needle brittle
All the courses will be paired accordingly with drinks.
So if you’re a high rollin’ food fanaticÂ in the Queen City, give Dean & Deluca a call and see if spots are still available for thisÂ Â mid-week event.
