GATHERING - FEBRUARY 19TH, 8PM

Gathering is back with many new flavors sought out from the far reaches of Chiloe, an island south of Chile and from the driest desert in the world, Atacama Desert. Come savor this at the next Gathering on Friday, February 19th. Many of the ingredients were sourced from the local markets of Chile. Ideas were collected along the way while capturing the most beautiful landscape. Come delve into the cuisine of Chile.

While on an artist residence in Chiloe I was lucky to collaborate with a Huilliche Mapuche (indigenous from the south of Chile). She was my guide while making the most traditional dish called curanto.  This dish dates back 6,000 years and means "stony ground" in Mapudungun (the mapuche language). A large hole is dug into the ground and a fire is lit at the bottom topped with a mound of stones.  When the sides of the pit are well heated, it is a sign that it is ready to receive the infinite variety of foods that make up the curanto: potatoes, sausage, pork, lamb, and all kinds of shellfish, mainly clams, of which there are an abundance.  Then they cover the bottom and sides of the pit with leaves of fern or nalca, and continue adding the foods mentioned above in layers, separated one from another and with plenty of seasonings, until the pit is completely full. The top is covered with nalca leaves and left to steam for hours.

Come experience pulmay -a curanto made in a pot- at the next Gathering. Join me on Friday, February 19th at 8pm.

Gathering is back for its autumn debut. Come taste the lasting flavors and beautiful colors this season has to offer. The crisp air has been tamed to perfection. Lets enjoy the last of the sunny days before the white winter comes forth. Bring friends to this joyous event where you will meet beautiful people and eat simple yet a daring mix of flavors.

Gathering - July 16th, 8pm

Summer is here in all its splendor. The markets are blooming with variety and the forests are ready to be foraged. June Gathering will be light yet flavorful, bursting with notes of the Mediterranean Sea and its bordering cultures, hints of the Middle East twist with an Asian zing. Worlds will collide and make sense of each other within each platter. Flavors will roll off your tongue and into words. Come make sense of it all, alone, with a friend or family. Reserve your seat today.

Gathering - May 15th, 7pm

I am back to New York in May after spending two and a half months working on a food related art project in Veracruz. I am grateful to learn from the beautiful "women of smoke" (mujeres de humo), the Totonaca women who proclaim that their perfume is that of smoke, their skin absorbing the smells of the wood fire burning oven. Each morning they kneel down asking for permission to begin their fire in order to nuture their people. They have much respect for the process and all the ingredients needed to create each dish. 

For those who like to plan ahead, reserve your seats today for May Gathering. The meal will be inspired by my time spent in Mexico with the Totonaca women.  For updates on upcoming events check our site. See you in May when the crisp Spring air lightens our moods and the farmers market are packed with more fruits and veggies.

This month's inspiration is Smoke!!! I have concocted a DIY smoker at home so I have been experimenting with all sorts of fruits, veggies and meats with all types of wood. The end results have been so palate pleasing I am excited to add some smoke to this month's Gathering menu, exploring both its sweet and savory side.

September Gathering is finally here!

Our last gathering was quite an experience. Now that the heat is tame Gathering is back. After spending a month in Mexico much inspiration has come out of it, from mole to chile en nogada. Although the meal will not be completely Mexican there definitely will be a great influence. I am excited to see some of the same people as well as new friends around my table again.
