Chef Demo with
of The Shed at Glenwood
10:00 a.m. on 10/1
Chef Demos are sponsored by
Whole Foods Market
If you haven’t had the pleasure of a leisurely brunch at The Shed or visited the fine folks there for Wednesday’s $3 Slider Night (not your usual sliders, y’all), get out your pin, paper, or techno gadget and jot this down: check out The Shed at Glenwood! You’ll feel right at home in the cozy neighborhood spot and, with Executive Chef Lance Gummere at the helm of the open kitchen, you’ll want to stay a while. His extensive culinary experience includes over 15 years working with Chef Shaun Doty and he carries his love for simply prepared, market fresh menus to his dishes at The Shed. His outlook is casual, but his food is something serious—the perfect combination which results in dishes like Braised Suckling Pig with Heirloom Corn Grits and Collards, Baked Cedar Plank North Carolina Trout with Mushrooms, Scallions, and Fennel Salad, and a Shepherd's Pie made with Smoked Beef Brisket and Yukon Gold Mash. And don’t get us started on the sliders (seriously, mark your calendar). With a variety of large and small plates and creative cocktails, it’s no wonder Lance has built a following of regulars. Stop by his demo this Saturday and find out for yourself!
