An Ice cream social for grown-ups

A blurb in the Seattle PI today announced an ice cream social we are hosting at Eva.

Ice cream stars

One name you probably know, one name we bet you're going to know better in years to come. Emily Luchetti, former pastry chef for Stars restaurant and a James Beard award winner, will team up for an "ice cream social" at 7:30 p.m. July 31 with Dana Bickford, talented pastry chef at Eva Restaurant & Wine Bar (2227 N. 56th St.). Bickford, an alumna of Lampreia and England's Fat Duck, will be preparing recipes from Luchetti's book, "A Passion for Ice Cream," in this Cooks and Books event. Luchetti, currently pastry chef at San Francisco's Farallon restaurant, will sign books and talk food. Cost is $36, not including tax and tip. Reservations required; call 206-633-3538.

I am very excited as Emily Luchetti is one who's 4 books I pour over hoping to absorb a bit of her down to earth, elegant, and nostalgic dessert style.

While the entire menu isn't set quite yet, I am planning on an Amuse Sucre of petite lemon ice cream and gingersnap sandwiches, and miniature chocolate cupcakes stuffed with pistachio ice cream. Plated courses will include, but are not limited to a frozen creme caramel, a peach "stuffed" with blackberry granita, and a dessert called Cho Cho Cho, (short for chocolate) that should send you home in a chocolate induced haze.

The book, which is a summer dessert must, will be for sale with the chance to chat with Emily Luchetti and have the booked signed.
