renown (is there anything this guy can't do? Leave some for the rest of us) let us know this morning that he, Joel Paoner of Over Rice food truck
, and Francis "Masterchef" Biondi
will host a Filipino feast at the Guesthouse Sunday, Jan. 15.
A "kamayan" is a traditional Filipino way of communal eating – food is served family-style on banana leaves and eaten with bare hands. Although it's traditional to eschew plates and silverware, the chefs will provide them at this dinner for the bashful eaters.
The menu isn't locked in yet, but there will be a variety of Filipino-inspired delicacies, from vegetarian dishes to pork, other meats and fish, all spread atop mounds of steamed rice and banana leaves.
The crowning touch: Tiki cocktails will be mixed and served by the Guesthouse. Doors open 5 p.m. Sunday for a brief cocktail mingle before digging into the communal feast. More information will be shared in the coming days on Facebook
, but you can buy tickets
on Eventbrite now.
