What are you doing on April 28th?

I will be cooking in Wilmington Delaware at Harry’s Savoy Grill at a charity to benefit Share Our Strength. I’m very excited to be working with such a great organization and honored that they chose me. I have been asked cook a dish paired with a Bouchaine Pinot noir. I started to brainstorm about what to pair with such a great wine. The Pinot noir’s nuanced fruit of and the bright acidity led me to create a dish of Confit local heritage suckling pork, dried cherries, Kennett Square mushrooms, cippolini onion, and braised mustard seeds. Who doesn’t love pig and Pinot? I will post pictures and recipes of this dish in the future. Take a look at the information below for more details.

  1. Hari, thanks so much for participating in this year’s Taste of the Nation dinner! In addition to you, Walter Staib and Robert Bennett, we’ve added Evan Deluty and Marc Orfaly, both from Boston, as guest chefs. Evan is the chef/owner of Stella, while Marc is the Executive Chef/Owner of Pigalle. We know this will be a terrific menu and are so excited to have you with us. Thanks again!

  2. If one were to want to make a contribution to Share Our Strength, how would they go about doing so, if not able to attend the event?
