Deal on Culinary Demo & Gourmet Dinner

 The restaurant at Cincinnati State's Culinary Institute (Summit) is holding a cooking demonstration followed by a 3-course gourmet meal on Saturday August 13th.  If you haven't seen their state-of-the-art Demonstration Theater, now is a perfect time to make the trip. The facility sits stop the school's new classroom building near the Hopple Street exit of I-75  After the demo by the Summit Restaurant's Chef Sean Kagy (pictured) and wine expert Mary Horn, you'll ascend to the dining room for dinner.

Details are below in the email I received from the restaurant. To make a reservation, you have to call 569-4980 after 3 PM and pay by credit card. 

See you there!

Summit Restaurant is sharing our 'trade secrets.'

Chef Sean Kagy and his friends at The Summit Restaurant will be taking the stage to let guests in on some "trade secrets'' - and then you get to taste the results.

On Saturday, August 13, Kagy will host a special dinner. First, in the Midwest Culinary Institute's Demonstration Theater, he will give a step by step explanation of what it takes to expertly prepare Strawberry Shortcake with Rhubarb Coulis in Phyllo pastry.

Then, guests will head upstairs to The Summit Restaurant and enjoy a three-course meal featuring the dish you just learned about: Strawberry Shortcake in Phyllo as the third course.

Joining Chef Kagy for the demonstration, and the meal, will be Mary Horn, Director of Sales for Wine Trends.  She will give a presentation on dessert wines, port wines and late harvest wines....demonstrating the differences of each and how they are paired with food.  The presentation will begin at 6:30 p.m., but guests are welcome to arrive any time after 6 p.m.  When you do, you'll be presented with a glass of champagne - and an invitation to ask questions not just after, but during, the presentations.

Perhaps as lovely as anything is the price - just $45 per person for the dinner and demonstration, not including tax, alcohol or gratuity. Wine pairings will be available for an additional $10.
Parking at The Summit, as ever, will be complimentary.
