On February 17th and 18th, graffEats, Turntable Kitchen, and FoxconSox Consulting will be presenting a dinner of covers. The six course meal, prepared by graffEats chef, Blair Washerman, will feature “covers” of signature dishes from some of today’s culinary luminaries. Select dishes will include Grant Archatz’s “Hot Potato, Cold Potato” and Daniel Humm’s Pave of Suckling Pig (full menu below). Turntable Kitchen’s Matthew Hickey will be providing Musical Pairings for each course (covers, of course! Think, Michel Bras’s Black Olive Oil Poached Monkfish paired with Françoise Hardy’s cover of Leonard Cohen’s “Suzanne”).

graffEats: graffEats is a of word of mouth, upscale dining event; hosting artists, artisan producers, wine and beer makers, live musicians and complete strangers under the common bond of delicious food coming straight. Ran by chef Blair Warsham, who has cooked for some the best chefs in the US and Europe, including 11 Madison Park’s Daniel Humm, their intention is to create little, fleeting, amazing moments and a bit of a culinary roller coaster.
Turntable Kitchen: Turntable Kitchen is the marriage of eating/sf and Musical Pairings, a food and music blog that was born in a foggy Inner Sunset, San Francisco apartment and is run by an inspired couple: Kasey and Matthew. They feature recipes with a focus on local, fresh ingredients, hand-selected “Musical Pairings,” album reviews and musings on their city livin’ and country hoppin’ adventures. Most importantly, they aim to introduce food lovers to music and vice versa.
FoxconSox Consulting: Jesse Fox lives a life where he: Work for a food marketing start-up, writes about popular culture, and maintains two hands (both a left AND a right) in working order at all times. Don't even get him started on sandwiches.
