The Allium Live Virtual Experience - Episode 6
A Very Fall Feast! - 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 and Mixologist Graham Masters is in the Experience Box below.
Join us online on October 26th 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:
- Roasted heirloom carrots and romanesco
- Garlicky mashed potatoes with miso gravy
- We will then be creating the "For the Love of Gourd" cocktail, a one of a kind Graham Masters creation, made with pumpkin + carrot juice, aquafaba, citrus stock, szechuan peppercorn tincture. Add your choice of spirit (spirits are not included, if desired, please have one of the following spirits on hand: gin, vodka, or 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 Graham Masters questions throughout the meal preparation via our live chat feature.
