I'm on the board of the St. Louis Media History Foundation. That's because they have a scholarship in Joe's name and I'm honored to have a finger in that pie. Now the folks at 1111 Mississippi have put together a dinner that celebrates Chef Bob Colosimo's win as chef of the year from the local chapter of the American Culinary Federation and the win in the Taste of St. Louis Chef's Battle Royal. Part of the proceeds go to the Media History Foundation. The menu that night is a recreation of those dishes.
What will we eat? An egg raviolo on chicken hash. Crispy coconut skate wing with rice noodles in lobster broth. (Can't go wrong with skate wing, I always say.) Horseradish-coated roasted sirloin with parsnip-potato mashers, napa cabbage, and horseradish crisp. (No idea on that last one, sorry.) For dessert, white and dark chocolate mousses with a pear sorbet. And all this is $50.
February 25 is the night of the dinner. The menu will be available all evening. When you call for a reservation, or email, say you want the Winner's Dinner. I understand the regular menu will also be available that evening.
Oh, and one more thing - that amount doesn't include drinks or the gratuity. But we look forward to seeing you there. A good cause and good food: What could be bad?
(and that's the address, too, of course)
