I recently attended one of these popups, hosted at Eli's gorgeous apartment in the South End. The food was prepared by PHaDe Food Labs, with wine pairings by Jonathan Fenelon of Clio restaurant. PHaDe Food Labs is a company started by two PHD students who share a love of science and food. They wanted to combine their interests, so they created PHade - a scientific approach to cooking. The evening started with some sparkling wine and passed hors d'ouvres, and then we headed upstairs for a sit down, multi-course dinner.
|Fava Bean Puree with pickled ramps|
|Arugula salad with beets, goat cheese, and pecans.|
|Sea and Sand: bay scallop in squid ink agnolotti with uni butter|
|Maccheroni alla chitarra, lamb ragu, egg yolk, and cacao|
|Beef tenderloin cooked sous vide with coffee, asparagus, blue cheese, and garlic|
|Caramelized banana "creme brulee", miso chocolate, and "shroom bread"|
I plan to start using Soon Spoon because I love the concept, and I'd love to be invited back for another dinner!
