I’m cooking a fall dinner with local meat and produce inspired by the many flavors found in the aisles of my favorite Mountain View grocery store on October 18. It couldn’t be pure more awesome Anchorage.  It’s a four-course dinner in the adorable back room at South restaurant. There are 25 seats. The cost is $75 per person and includes paired drinks. For more info, go here.

Here’s a sneak-peek at my draft menu:

Salad:
Roasted Alaska beets with popped quinoa, crispy lentils, slivered Thai chilis, curried yogurt, cashews and shaved coconut.
Second course, small plates to share: 
Deep-fried shishito peppers with Tajin seasoning
Devils on horseback with sweet chili reduction
Carmelized Alaska carrots and parsnips with crema Mexicana agria and Mike’s Hot Honey
Roasted local winter squash half-moons with cilantro-lime vinaigrette
Tasty tamari deviled eggs?
Main course:
Momofuku’s Bo Ssam-style local slow-cooked pork with ssam sauce, ginger scallion sauce and local made kimchi.
Served with bib lettuce and basket-steamed sticky rice.
Dessert: TBD by Uncle Tommy
