(Chef's Table) Chicha, Chicha! A 6 Course Filipino-inspired Dinner with Wine Pairings

In-PersonMission, San Francisco


Pop-up space
Intimate (2-4 Guests)
The 6 available seats at the chef's table will be located in the kitchen of this unique and beautiful venue in the SF Mission district. For this event series, I'll be collaborating with chefs and sommeliers that I have cooked with in the past or that I've worked closely with. We'll be featuring 6 courses of Filipino-inspired dishes using seasonal and locally sourced (when possible) ingredients. Some of the unique flavors of Filipino cuisine will be highlighted in this meal. For this dinner, I have worked closely with Carlos to curate a menu to go along with the wine pairings for each course. Please see below for our menu. We hope to see you at our dinner! Carlos Lorenzo is a wine professional and he currently works as a Fine Wine Acquisition Specialist for Benchmark Wine Group. He attended the Culinary Institute of America in Hyde Park, New York to pursue a career in the culinary field as a cook/chef then later transitioned to focus his work and studies in the hospitality industry and wine business. In his past time, he loves hosting friends and family — following his motto, « LITTY TT! ». This pop-up is an introduction to Filipino flavors and wine pairings. Note: You are more than welcome to bring your own wine, as well, to drink as you please. Thank you!
