Beloved local chefs and the Arkansas Symphony Orchestra are the pairing we didn't know we needed. 

This April, fans of both can get a double helping with Symphony of Flavors, a virtual, month-long program designed to raise funds for the ASO and give viewers a peek into the kitchens of some of the city's favorite chefs.

Every week participants will receive a kit of goodies, wine and recipes at home before logging on to watch chefs walk through how to prepare a featured gourmet meal step-by-step, paired with interludes from various ASO musicians.

Here's what's on the menu:

 

April 8 

Chef: Capi Peck, Trio’s Restaurant - legumbres en pipian, a hearty Mexican stew

Music: "Variations on a Mexican Theme"

 

April 15

Chef: Ricardo Rincón, Kemuri Restaurant - miso cod

Music: "Asian Suite"

 

April 22

Chef: Eric Isaac, Ristorante Capeo - chicken piccata

Music: "Ode to Italy"

 

April 29

Chef: Clark Trim & Henrik Thostrup, Colonial Wines and Spirits - roast rack of lamb provence

Music: "Springtime Sonata"

 

The series is hosted by the ASO Guild, a group dedicated to raising funds and awareness for the symphony through events and music education.

Tickets go on sale March 1 and are available as individual classes or a series pass. Virtual attendees will receive a link to watch live and will have access to videos of demonstrations for two weeks.
