SPICE Meets Michelin!
Some of you have been asking, "What's the SPICE crew been up to lately?" ... So we wanted to share with you our exciting news from last month!
After only less than a year of getting SPICE off the ground and up and running, we had the chance to experience one of our most exciting adventures as a team.
The SPICE crew was hugely honored to be invited to be a part of this year's Michelin Guide Launch event, along with 5 other San Francisco based supper clubs. Each year, Michelin announces the restaurants in each major city around the world who have received (or lost) Michelin stars. In the foodie world, receiving a Michelin star is considered to be the most prestigious honor for a chef.
This year Michelin wanted to celebrate the real roots of the culinary world and the passion around why people cook, so they invited a small select group of private supper clubs to be the focal point of the event, and ... we were one of them!
We had the chance to cook along side of an awesome group of other local supper clubs including graffEats, forageSF, Outstanding in the Field, Radio Africa Kitchen and Cooking with James. The SPICE crew served up a chicken liver pate appetizer, Ben's famous Zinfandel braised short ribs and SPICE Bites for dessert.
And what would a SF evening be without the wine and cocktails flowing?! The noble rot (a traveling wine saloon) poured some ridiculous hidden gems (the Mueller Diamond Mountain District Cabernet was a favorite) and the frozen chocolate shots served by mixologist, Mayur Subbarao of Evoe NYC, were like nothing you could imagine.
Needless to say, we had a blast! And a huge special thanks to our NY based supper club friends, Whisk & Ladle and Forking Tasty, and also our extended SPICE team, Tessa Petrich, Eric Dorf and Emilie Klatte! Pictures from the event are here :)
Stay tuned for our next SPICE announcement and details coming soon ...
