one pot + the fortune cookie chronicles + jerry traunfeld + xuan che = sunday march 30th.
we owe yet another promising one pot evening to kim ricketts – here is the line-up:
jennifer 8 lee – acclaimed nytimes metro reporter and author of the brand new non-fiction thriller the fortune cookie chronicles – there is much to be said about her remarkable piece of investigative journalism and the critics sometimes say it best.
jerry traunfeld – former chef at the herbfarm and chef/owner of soon-to-open capitol hill establishment to be called “poppy” – I think jerry has won every award one can foist upon a chef and there is no doubt the man deserves the credit.
xuan che – the daughter of a chinese-american chef and a graduate of the california culinary academy, worked with jerry in the herbfarm’s kitchen, and now cooks at crush. xuan studied cooking in shanghai after winning the woman chefs and restaurateur’s barabara tropp scholarship
needless to say – it should be quite an evening. expect a thoughtful menu by jerry and xuan, and spirited conversation with jennifer about her work. we will be tucked into a hidden but unbelievably beautiful capitol hill loft.
80/person – email to reserve.
