16sep6:00 PM10:00 PMEvent OverThe DinnerInspired by Kitchens of the Great Midwest Event Organized By: Edible History Location:NYCExperience Type:Supper Club

Event Details

Fork Monkey and Edible History are teaming up to recreate the epic pop-up supper club “The Dinner” from the novel Kitchens of the Great Midwest by J. Ryan Stradal.

Consider this a book club/supper club – previous knowledge of the book not required. Edible History’s resident historian and host will guide diners through a six-course feast, with each dish representing a chapter of protagonist Eva Thorvald’s journey through Minnesota, Michigan, Illinois and South Dakota on her way to becoming a legendary female chef.

Guests will dine under the stars on an urban farm tucked away in one of the furthest corners of New York City. Recipes like Golden Bantam Succotash, Grilled Venison and Blackberry Pavlova will showcase the natural bounty of the American autumnal harvest. A welcome cocktail at 6 pm will be followed by wines to accompany each course. The author will be in attendance to discuss his inspiration for the novel and sign copies of the book.

Optional roundtrip transportation from Manhattan to the farm can be added onto the price of the ticket and will mean you get to meet your fellow dinner guests that much sooner!
