Preservation Dinner at High Street on July 22

High Street course 1

Back in May, Chef Eli Kulp and I decided to team up for a series of dinner at High Street that would feature seasonal preserves. The first dinner was on June 3 and was a riot of delicious courses that all highlighted fresh, seasonal preserves. The second dinner in our series is Tuesday, July 22 and with summer produce beginning to reach its zenith, it is going to be well worth attending.

(The pictures in this post are from that June meal. Please forgive the focus issues, the room was quite dim).

High Street course 2

The way the night works is that you come in, get settled at a table and order a drink if you so desire. Sometime after the first course is served, I’ll come around to your table to say hi and see how you’re doing.

Soon after the second course shows up, I’ll say a few words about canning, preserving, and some of the delicious things that are currently in season. I’ll have copies of Preserving by the Pint with me and am also entirely delighted to sign copies you already own.

The cost is $25 per person (plus beverages, tax, and gratuity). The menu will be released at 12 noon, the day of the meal and service begins promptly at 9 pm. Reservations are highly recommended, and you can make them by calling (215) 625-0988.

And if you can’t make the dinner next week, mark your calendar for September 30. That’s the night of the final dinner, which

Just a reminder that the first preserves dinner at High Street is tonight! I just got the menu and it reads like a perfect celebration of spring. If you’re in the Philadelphia area, there are still a few seats left and I would love to see some Food in Jars readers there!

This special menu (which you can find below the jump) will be served tonight starting at 9 pm at High Street (308 Market Street). You can make a reservation by calling (215) 625-0988.

Preserving Dinners with Chef Eli Kulp at High Street

Over the course of this summer and fall, I’m working on a really cool collaboration (much like Tenaya and Amanda did before me). I’ve teamed up with Chef Eli Kulp (Executive Chef at Philly’s Fork and High Street restaurants) to help create a series of three preserving themed dinners at High Street.

The menus are going to feature lots and lots of jams, pickles, chutneys, and other preserves. Some will be the shining star of the course, while others be supporting players. For those of you who struggle to find ways of using your canning beyond the basics, these meals will give you an opportunity to taste some amazing flavors and get a world of fresh inspiration on how to put your preserves to work.

The first of these three dinners will be on Tuesday, June 3 and if the meeting we had this morning is any indication, it’s going to be spectacularly delicious. The cost is just $25 per person (plus beverages, tax, and gratuity). The menu will be released at 12 noon, the day of the meal and service begins promptly at 9 pm. Reservations are highly recommended, and you can make them by calling (215) 625-0988.

If you can’t make the June dinner, the other two will be on July 22 and September 30. They menus will all be seasonally driven and different from one another. I hope to see some of you there!
