Breaking Chews 1.21.24

Today is New England Clam Chowder Day and gosh is it a good day for hot soup! For great NE "Chowdah" I like Steami's in Duluth, WH Stiles in Ponce City Market, Lure in Midtown, Big Ketch in Buckhead, and the Steamhouse Lounge for some OG soup.

Sushi nerds get ready! Brush Sushi is having a tuna cutting and tasting this Wednesday, January 24, 2024, at 6:00 PM in the Buckhead Village. This will be an intimate tasting-style 8-course dinner by Chef Jason Liang & Brush team. It's $275 per ticket so it's for serious sushi snobs like me but you will get a firsthand look at the masterful process of preparing a whole bluefin tuna. Throughout the night, guests will not only learn but also experience the flavor of Japan's most sought-after fish. Tickets are available now!

Also coming to Brush in March, a Sushi Making Class on Sunday, March 24, 2024, at 5:00 PM. This will be $125 per ticket and you will learn how to make sushi rolls, nigiri sushi, and temaki. Led by Chef Owner of Brush Sushi, Jason Liang. Jason will guide you through every step, ensuring an enjoyable and educational culinary journey. What You'll Learn Sushi Rice: Master the art of preparing the perfect sushi rice. Nigiri Sushi: Learn the delicate technique of forming nigiri sushi with fresh and high-quality ingredients. Snow Crab California Roll: Dive into the world of maki rolls with the iconic California Roll, combining avocado, crab salad, and cucumber. Spicy Tuna Temaki: Create a flavorful hand-rolled spicy tuna temaki for a delightful kick. Negi Toro Ikura Temaki U Shape: Elevate your skills with a unique and visually appealing negi toro ikura temaki in a U shape. Optional Sake Pairing Enhance your sushi experience with our optional sake pairing. Our thoughtfully curated selection of sake is designed to complement the diverse flavors of your sushi creations.

If you like the hands-on classes also check out the Make Your Own Fresh Pasta Class at Bella Cucina on Saturday, February 10th from 11:30 am - 1:30 pm at $150.00 per person. You'll learn the Southern Style of fresh semolina pasta and hand-roll it into strands of pici. Taste a sampling of pasta with various Bella Cucina sauces during the class. Guests will take home a selection of pastas they make in class to enjoy in their own homes. Gather a group of friends, bring a friend, or enjoy in the company of others as we have some fun. Light Bites & chilled bubbly will be provided. Bella Cucina is located at 270 Buckhead Avenue, Atlanta 30305. Buckhead Village.

Finally, the torch of a legendary burger joint is being passed. The delightfully irreverent The Vortex will now be operated by the owners of Taco Mac. Hopefully, they will keep their 21+ "Burgers and Bar Food" spirit there and Taco Mac CEO Harold Martin Jr. assures everyone that the legacy will be preserved. Martin also owns Mary Mac's Tea Room so he knows a thing or two about preserving heritage brands.
