The Allium Live Virtual Experience - Episode 3

An Interactive "Meatless Monday" cooking lesson with Chef Alex Hamilton, Mixologist Graham Masters, and Founder Jared Blustein

Summer Is In The Air! - An Elegant Yet Accessible Local Inspired Meal

Recently named one of Avenue Magazine's best new restaurants, The Allium is an elevated plant-based restaurant focusing on ethical, local, creative food and libations.

Wanting to share our love of local food and connect with our community, we are excited to announce the third installment of our interactive "Meatless Monday" cooking lesson. 

A virtual community dinner from the comfort of your home…and no need to go to the grocery store. Everything you need to follow along with The Allium's very own Chef Alex Hamilton is in the Experience Box below.

Join us online on July 6 at 6:00 pm where Chef Alex will walk you through, step by step, how to create your own signature plant-based dish! Guaranteed to taste great and to impress your friends this summer. 


Meal + Drink

This episode includes:  

- The Allium Caesar with Basil Ranch bok choy, Allium Caesar dressing, crispy chickpeas, manchego lattice/nutritional yeast, and sourdough crumb

- Hasselback zucchini with eggplant caponata and nasturtium pesto. 

- We will then be creating the Brutus Cocktail with housemade Vegan ‘Clamato’, Allium Worcestershire, togarashi, sriracha, pickled veggie and your choice of spirit (spirits are not included, if desired, please have one of the following spirits on hand: gin, vodka, tequila, bourbon) 

Vegan + GF options available (please specify in delivery notes)

Better than following a recipe or watching a recorded video, you'll have the ability to ask Chef Alex and Mixologist Graham Masters questions throughout the meal preparation via our live chat feature. The chat will be monitored and facilitated by The Allium's beloved founder Jared Blustein.
