Taste of Eastern Market

Hey! So there's this thing called Detroit Restaurant Week; perhaps you've heard. September 18-27, 2009, 17 participating restaurants, $27.00 prix fixe minimum 3-course menus at each restaurant.

But there's another component to this week as well: "Taste of Eastern Market."

At 10:00AM every Saturday between now and September 26, there will be chefs from different restaurants participating in Restaurant Week who will be offering cooking demonstrations inside Eastern Market's Shed 2. This is a great way for you to experience you own preview of DRW, instead of leaving all the work for me! (Not that I mind.)

Last week, Kirk Hansen from Atlas Global Bistro prepared Michigan Garden Ratatouille and Garlic Parmesan Panna Cotta. (I am truly regretting missing this--what else should sick days at work be used for?) Coming up next,

~24 Grille on August 29,
~Roast on September 5,
~Wolfgang Puck Grille and Saltwater on September 12,
~Seldom Blues/Detroit Fish Market on September 19, and
~Cuisine on September 26.

Besides, it will do you some good to get outside and get some fresh air. Summer is almost over...sad face.

23 more days until Restaurant Week! Plenty of time to buy some pants with an elastic waist!

Later this week, keep an eye out for my preview of Cuisine. You may have forgotten about this place, but you really shouldn't have.
