Update: Photos from the amazing first dinner are here! Yum yum. Great job Steve!
Hi Genuine Kitchen Readers. It’s not often we come to you with requests, so we’re sharing one now in the hopes that you get it – like we did – and feel the love enough to support the cause. Chef de cuisine Bradley Herron, whom you may have seen featured in yesterday’s Tasting Table Sous Chef Series, came up with this great idea for his Miami cooks inspired by Marcus Samuelsson’s memoir, Yes: Chef. After hosting his Miami release party in our private dining room in July, we read the memoir. In it, chef Samuelsson recalls a dinner he hosted at his home to raise money to send one of his line cooks away to stage for a few days with a great chef from his past, from whom he, as a young cook, learned a great deal. Thanks to Michael’s amazing relationships, we are now able to do the same, and Bradley cooked up an offer to make it happen. Get 30 people to each spend $50 on a family style dinner in his own home, cooked by a stage hopeful, in Sunday’s case, line cook Steve Martin, with lots of help and donations from the genuine family to put it on… The proceeds then go to send Steve, appropriately, to work in Jonathon Sawyer’s kitchen for a week, a favorite chef of ours who popped at Harry’s in the spring and left his chef behind to stage with us in the genuine kitchen for a week. The genuine exchange will now be complete with your help. See below, and the menu above, and let us know if have any questions. I’m on centerpiece duty and ticket sales (please click below or pay Brad in cash if you see him at the restaurant!)
Thanks for your support and readership!
