Captain Stargo’s log. Stardate 28.0717
Welcome Earthlings. You have been invited to join us on a tasteful rocket ride. The future is vegan molecular gastronomy.
The meal and entertainment is a benefit for the SpaceCat Art Collective, who will be bringing a rocket ship and cats in spacesuits to Burning Man this year. Yes, this will be that kind of dinner party. There may be a magician. There may be burlesque. There may be music.
This dinner will border on being performance art, and will take place in a decked out art warehouse near Humboldt Park.
The 5-course futuristic molecular space dinner is $42, and the event page can be found here.
That said, here’s the menu for the evening:
-Countdown: 3 layer soup of chilled bell pepper, corn-saffron, and cucumber gazpacho
-Liftoff: Vegan cheese and crudite plate: Housemade bread, several housemade vegan cheeses, pickled and prepared farmers market vegetables, romesco sauce, black olive caramel, and olive oil powder.
-Zero G: Carrot tentacles, carrot ‘yolk,’ peas, pea foam, harissa.
-Orbit: Vegetable ash pasta with tomatoes, chile, and fennel, served with trumpet mushroom scallops dusted with nori.
-Lost In Space: Featuing cakes by Pie, Pie My Darling.
Served with porous, chocolate space rocks.
