After Wednesday’s special event with Chef Ivan Orkin, April Bloomfield‘s delicious collaborations continue with an exclusive dinner this Sunday featuring quite a crew of culinary stars. In celebration of Paul Virant‘s anticipated book release of The Preservations Kitchen cookbook, Bloomfield will host a a dinner and after-party at The Ace Hotel‘s Liberty Hall. When Bloomfield launched the release of A Girl and Her Pig, chef-friend Virant hosted a launch party at his restaurant, Perennial Virant in Chicago, and now it is her chance to return the favor here in New York.
The two chefs met back in 2007 when both were honored by Food & Wine Magazine as, “Best New Chefs.” Since then they have continued down the road towards culinary stardom. On October 21st, the pair will team up with five other New York chefs in preparing a five-course feast with cocktails and wine pairings. Mark Ladner and Brooks Headley of Del Posto will venture outside of the kitchen and try their hands at mixology. The duo will be offering two specialty cocktails during a welcoming cocktail hour that starts at 7:00pm.
At 8:00pm dinner is served and will feature exclusive menu items by Bloomfield, Virant, Josh Evens of John Dory Oyster Bar, Nick Anderer of Maialino, and Jane Tseng, pastry chef at The Breslin. After dinner, guests are invited to stick around for book signings and a private after-party. This is a one-night-only opportunity to see chefs combine their powers to create one exceptional dining experience. Learn more and purchase tickets here.
