If anyone has visited Philadelphia even once, it’s likely they’ve heard of the Stephen Starr name. With 20 successful restaurants in this city, and nine others stretching through Washington D.C, New York City, Atlantic City, and Florida, the name is truly hard to miss. Stephen Starr’s 20 years of noteworthy accomplishments in the hospitality and entertainment industries make his latest venture, an Interactive Chef Demonstration Series at the Museum of Art, a sure win for his brand.
The intimate and hands on 90-minute classes will give participants in depth tutorials on cooking everything from sushi to traditional Spanish tapas. The Executive Chef at Morimoto Restaurant, Gerald Drummond, will lead demonstrations for every class and assist with some techniques. Each participant will have the opportunity to sample the food created and take home recipes for all dishes, as well as a special parting gift. At $32 a class ($29 for Museum members), all three of these demonstrations are not to miss! Purchase your advance tickets here.
