True to the event’s name, some serious girl power will be at work to bring attending gourmands five delectable courses, each to be set off by complementary wines donated by Joe Bonk and Hand Picked Selections. Nicole Pederson of C-House will prepare smoked sable fish with fiddleheads, minors lettuce, rhubarb, mustard, and rye, while Priscilla Satkoff of ¡Salpicon! will serve up some sautéed walleye pike fillets wrapped in sweet potato strands with a chipotle cream sauce. Susan Goss herself will provide capon breasts stuffed with country ham along with fontina and spinach with goat cheese grits and spring vegetables, and Jackie Shen of Chicago Cut Steakhouse will supply grilled Asian skirt steaks with crispy fries. Finishing off the fabulous quintet and coming to the sweet tooth’s rescue will be Jesse Oloroso of Black Dog Gelato, slicing up lemon custard cake with olive oil thyme gelato. So come hungry—for some superb cuisine and an opportunity to give back to neighbors in need.
Tickets are $150 a person, and you can still buy them here. The event starts this Sunday, April 22, at 7:30.
West Town Tavern is located at 1329 W. Chicago Avenue.
