Around The World Pop-Up Dinner II

Join Chef Mya Zeronis for the second in a series of monthly Around The World Pop-Up Dinners. Guests will be treated to culinary creations with worldly inspiration, culled with locally-grown organic non-GMO ingredients and flavored with health-boosting spices and herbs.

The event will feature fun, workshops, and a four-course dinner. Chef Mya has a background in globally-inspired contemporary American cuisine, and will be serving up flavors of Louisiana, South America and Asia with her own modern flare, taking diners on a whirlwind delicious voyage. Included in the dinner is a demonstration of some of the different uses of mortar and pestle. This wonderful tool dates back to pre-history, but every modern kitchen should have a set!

Smash up lemongrass (certified naturally-grown) from Goose Creek Gardens. Use this to make a lovely tea. Feel free to drink it unsweetened, or to add some of Grandma Z’s Maple Haus less refined dark amber maple syrup for a great sweet taste and health benefits.

Make red curry paste.

Create your own guacamole, with ingredients from Clarion River Organics and Olive and Marlowe.

The four-course vegan and allergen-friendly meal is free of dairy, gluten, refined sugar and corn syrup. TAKE NOTE: No chemically processed textured GMO soy immitation meats or cheeses on the menu.

Meetup has allowed me to meet people I wouldn't have met naturally - they're totally different than me.
