TONIGHT, July 27th, 2010.
Kith and Kin will be hosting a 6-course dinner together with The Hum Spirits Company, Rare Tea Cellars and Ineeka Organic Green Tea.
Tea, botanical spirits and regional American cuisine come together in food and cocktails at Kith & Kin, where the restaurant’s poised to serve a spirited dinner on July 27. Executive Chef David Carrier is teaming up with Adam Seger of HUM Spirits, Rodrick Markus of Rare Tea Cellar, and Shashank Goel of Ineeka Organic Tea to create six courses of HUM- and tea-infused food with cocktails.
The evening will begin with a cocktail reception at 6:30 p.m., followed by dinner at 7:15 p.m. First course is a “Southern Buffet” of pimiento cheese crock, egg salad, biscuits with smoked mullet and wasabi-smoked oysters served with HUM sweet tea, ice cold barley pop beer and Ineeka Organic Green Tea bier.
Second course is a summer soup of chilled jasmine-infused sweet peas poured around lamb carpaccio, mint and toasted Parmesan. Southern Belle is the accompanying beverage made from jasmine tea, HUM botanical spirit and Champagne.
Rod & Reel is the third course, consisting of tea-poached halibut, Pharoah’s Lemon tea hollandaise and tea-blanched asparagus. The plate is paired with Organic Fizz, a blend of Ineeka Green Tea bier, HUM, egg white and Rare Tea Cellar’s Pharoah’s Lemon tea.
Fourth course is Barbecue Kith & Kin Style. The jerk spice-inspired dish features spit-roasted wild boar sausage and stuffed goat with yucca puree, paired with Not Yo Mama’s Colada, made from HUM, pineapple, lime, raw coconut nectar, bitter lemon, ginger, thyme and Comet’s Tail cracked pepper.
The cheese course is dubbed Damn Good Cheese, featuring Asher blue cheese, HUM-infused chutney and grilled bread. The accompanying Fancy Adult Tea is a HUM-spiked Rare Tea Cellar Vintage 2008 Blood Orange Pu-ehr.
