Hunt + Gather
Join us in this unique dinner challenge where you will "hunt" for local ingredients prior to the dinner and gather to cook a spontaneous 4 course meal with Chef Leif.
A special bag with an official invite and "hunting" instructions will be mailed to each guest. Each invite will include unique ingredient descriptions (green, leafy, or bitter for example), and guests will be challenged to interpret and source a fruit, vegetable, or herb to complement the meal. Participants are encouraged to forage, pick, or purchase their finds and gather information about its origin. The menu will ultimately be determined by the particular choices and interpretations of each guest.
Once the ingredients have been brought to the table, guests will have the opportunity to share their choice as we map out our menu's sources. With no preparation, the chef will be challenged to spontaneously design, prepare and plate an entire 4 course meal based on the collective ingredients, with the addition of chef provided seafood and meat. All guests will share in the cooking process with our head chef.
