Family Night: Going Basque

Family Night: Going Basque

Presented By: Campari, 7x7 magazine & KCBS

Participating Chefs: Jen Biesty - Scala’s Alicia Jenish - Grand Cafe

Chefs Jen Biesty and Alicia Jenish first became friends behind the burners of Loretta Keller’s Bizou, where they often cooked dishes from the Basque region. These days, the friends cook in restaurants just blocks from one another other and often meet for late-night drinks and eats at neighborhood spots like The Burritt Room, Cantina, Ryoko’s and Sanraku. For their Dinner Party Jen and Alicia are getting back in the kitchen together with a return to their early influences. Join these two talented chefs for a family-style Basque feast featuring their unique interpretations of dishes that meld the cuisines of France and Spain together. The dinner will be paired with a delightful selection of Basque-style wines.
