Smoking and pickling – a cookbook club from Kai


This month we are bringing a totally different kind of book to Kai, and as always you can expect a departure from the norm, and a serious gastronomic adventure.

Smoke and Pickles will be the star of the show next Tuesday evening March 25th when Jess and the team will fill your bellies with delights from the wonderful Chef Edward Lee.

Sitting in our usual communal setting we will tell the story of this Brooklyn chefs journey through food. Lee was raised by a family of Korean immigrants, which is a little insight into the magic he brings to his food. He currently lives in Louisville, Kentucky, where he owns the acclaimed restaurant 610 Magnolia.

A multiple James Beard Award nominee for his unique patchwork cuisine, Edward creates recipes–filled with pickling, fermenting, frying, curing, and smoking that reflect the overlapping flavors and techniques that led this Korean-American boy to feel right at home in the South.

Dishes like Chicken-Fried Pork Steak with Ramen Crust and Buttermilk Pepper Gravy; Collards and Kimchi; Braised Beef Kalbi with Soft Grits and Scallions; and Miso-Smothered Chicken all share a place on his table.

Born with the storytelling gene of a true Southerner, Lee fills his debut cookbook with tales of the restaurant world, New York City, Kentucky, and his time competing on Top Chef, plus more than 130 exceptional recipes for food with Korean roots and Southern soul.

Join us to experience the magic. Tickets are available in advance from the restaurant or by calling us on 091 526003.
