McMust Eats: The McEvent

What do the Parc baguette, Claudio’s smoked mozzarella and Stock’s pound cake have in common? Yes, they all landed in Philadelphia Weekly’s recent Must Eats package, authored by yours truly and fellow PW food dudes Tim McGinnis and Brian McManus. But those ingredients will also be turning up at the Philly Kitchen Share on Saturday, October 24 for Must Eats: The Event. McGinnis and McManus will be cooking a nine-course dinner inspired by and including several Must Eats gems. In addition to being two of the funniest writers in Philly, both Mcs are talented chefs and founders of collaborative culinary event company Spinal Tapas. McGinnis attended Johnson & Wales, studied in France after graduation, cooked in Providence and Delaware and currently holds down a day job as a high school culinary instructor. PW music editor McManus studied culinary arts at Houston Community College and juggled restaurant work with his indie band for seven years in Tex. The dinner will double as a meet-the-brewer event; Yards brewer Tim Roberts will be there to talk about Brawler, included in the $90 per person price. Only 16 reservations are available, so keep an eye on Philly Kitchen Share’s website, where the tickets will be sold via PayPal. Check out tentative menu below.
