FROM OUR FARM TO YOUR FAMILY: COOKING WITH SMIP RANCH
Saturday, September 20, 2014 | 11 a.m. until 2:30 p.m.
Prior to opening in 2001, we planted a garden. The purpose of the garden was to grow ingredients exclusively for the restaurant, and specific to the chef’s needs. Today, that garden has grown to five flourishing acres. Our two-person farmer team works around the clock, planting and caring for our hyper-seasonal, organic, custom crops, which boast vegetables, fruits, herbs, and more.
On this day, the “SMIP Girls” farmer team, Allison and Casey, will be cooking alongside chef Dmitry Elperin at our first-ever farmer-chef collaboration cooking class. Class will include an ingredient discussion on how to select the freshest, tastiest ingredients, meanwhile cooking with a selection of their pristine produce. In addition, you will get hands-on, learning different culinary techniques and preparations.
After instruction, you will be treated to a family-style meal, where you will enjoy a selection of the dishes you helped create, alongside a selection of wines paired by a member of our sommelier team.
$140 per person
