It was a pleasure to cook with Studiofeast this past Sunday for their 2nd “Studiofeast Sunday.”  These are small intimate events that pack a big gustatory punch.  Our lovely hosts, Brian Quinn and Jessica Lawrence opened their home and Brian mixed killer cocktails and paired wines with aplomb.

Check out this menu:

  1. Lobster, Burrata, Green Apple, Micro Arugula
  2. Winter Vegetable, Bagna Cauda, Chili
  3. Split Pea, Bacon, Creme Fraiche, Miso Toast
  4. 72 Hr Short Rib, White Bean, Fennel, Carrot
  5. Zeppole, Sichuan Pepper Hot Chocolate, Fig

This was every bit as good as it looks.

Photos & Recap: The Doppelganger Dinner

I had a thought once about couples where one person was a vegetarian and the other was a meat eater. It seemed like they could really…

Amazing dinner by my friends at StudioFeast7 courses, each with an identical (looking) omnivore and vegetarian option, plated side-by-side for a high-impact gustatory and ocular experience. Watermelon that looks like salmon, tofu that mimics a sea scallop, a potato stands in for bone marrow!

Be sure to check out the photos (captured by non-other than the wildly talented Steph Goralnick) and read the recap to get a behind-the-scenes look at how a passing thought is brought to life.

Let’s Eat In – Episode 69 – NYC Dining Car

This week on Let’s Eat In, Cathy Erway is joined by Michael J Cirino of A Razor A Shiny Knife and Mike Lee of Studio Feast supper club. They talk about “NYC Dining Car”, the recent 6-course mobile gourmet meal served on the L train in New York City. Learn how they pulled off this haute cuisine performance piece and how reactions have been surprisingly overwhelming.

“Our main focus here isn’t to run a restaurant that’s just not in a restaurant, it’s to create performance and that performance is supposed to inspire people and evoke reaction. And I think if we use that as a barometer I think we wildly succeeded in this regard.  I think food does a fantastic job of being political even when it’s trying to be whimsical and comedic.” – Michael Cirino
