TODD PRICE TASTE CLUB, PRESENTED BY FRENCH MARKET COFFEE
Join us for our next culinary adventure at The Country Club on Sep. 25: “Creole Cuisine with an Italian Twist!”
Chef Chris Barbato spent 17 years cooking at Commander’s Palace. For quite a few of those years, he was the chef de cuisine working directly below executive chef Tory McPhail. Two years ago, Barbato left to become the executive chef at Bywater’s The Country Club.
On Sept. 25, Barbato and The Country Club will host the next Todd Price Taste Club presented by French Market Coffee. Barbato will be cooking a Creole Italian menu that’s close to his heart.
“They’re things I grew up with,” Barbato said.
Drawing on his long career, the chef has elevated the food he remembers from childhood. The four-course Taste Club menu includes Insalata di Mare, or seafood salad with poached shrimp, crab meat, baby octopus and mussels; calamari stuffed with roasted olives and walnuts and an orange lacquered quail.
For dessert, Barbato’s wife, the talented pastry chef Lisa Barbato, will make a caf brulot tiramisu. (See the full menu below)
Tickets to the Taste Club are $100, which includes tax, tip and a complimentary cocktail when you arrive. The dinner begins at 6:30 p.m.
For the Taste Clubs, I work with some of my favorite chefs and restaurants to plan a unique dinner. The events are always lively and fun. We hope you can come.
See you there!
