Thanks to Andrew Chalk for covering the event last night while I emceed with Willy Warner and Robert Chandler. Go, Andrew:
Sevy’s Grill was full last night as the fifth SideDish Supper Club rolled in and turned the place into Seafood Boot Camp. Interestingly titled “Mythbusters Seafood Dinner: You Be The Judge” the courses of the meal contained three blind tastings of competing seafood ingredients where diners got to compare the taste and texture and guess which was which. This complemented the seafood story in the current issue of D Magazine. Expert commentary was provided by Willy Warner and Robert Chandler of Steve Connolly Seafood in Boston. At the front of the room they set up a display of some of the fish that currently appear on our plate. There was Pacific Halibut, Wild Sockeye Salmon, Bay of Fundy Atlantic Salmon, and a Monkfish. John Rector of Sigel’s provided commentary on the wines.

Last night’s SideDish Supper Club at Sevy’s Grill was more than fun, it was a learning adventure. Three of the five courses were “taste-offs” and the crowd really got in to the “game” of dissecting the flavor, texture, and tastes of the “contestants.” Andrew Chalk is writing a full report on the evening and I will post it shortly. Teresa Gubbins from Pegasus News was there and she already has a full story up .
I would like to thank our host Chef Jim “Sevy” Severson and his crew in the kitchen and on the floor. The service was perfect and the timing of each course was spot on. Also, a tip of the martini glass to Ketel One who poured their newest product, Ketel One Oranje vodka, for the first time at the Supper Club. Also making its debut was Robert Craig Vineyards’ much awaited Affinity 2007 Cabernet Sauvignon.
The real star of the evening was the crowd who came loaded with questions about seafood. Our hosts Willy Warner and Robert Chandler from Connolly Seafood in Boston answered them all. We also talked about putting together a Supper Club trip to Boston in July to take the Seafood School for Chefs at Steve Connolly Seafood. The Texas Rangers are playing the Boston Red Sox and the striped bass will be in season. If you are interested in going, drop me a line.1 Comment »
