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:
Chef: Capi Peck, Trio’s Restaurant - legumbres en pipian, a hearty Mexican stew
Music: "Variations on a Mexican Theme"
Chef: Ricardo Rincón, Kemuri Restaurant - miso cod
Music: "Asian Suite"
Chef: Eric Isaac, Ristorante Capeo - chicken piccata
Music: "Ode to Italy"
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.
