Spring is in the air (and at the market)
This week at PRFM...
Stock up on Easter treats this Saturday! Obviously eggs and carrots. But what about pea shoots to add flavor and color to any dish? We've got what you need for a perfect spring meal, savory or sweet, so hop on over. Also, come early to see David Bromstad of HGTV's Design Star and Color Splash filming a piece about how awesome the farmers market is! Also, live music.
Chef Demo with Adrian Villarreal
of The Spence
10:00 a.m. on 4/19
Chef Demos are sponsored by
You’ve heard of Richard Blais? Check. You’ve heard of his buzzed-about restaurant The Spence? Check. Here’s the chef that Blais trusts to craft an ever-changing, whimsical menu inspired by what’s fresh now. Adrian Villarreal brings to the table family inspiration (from Mexico) and classic training (from Le Cordon Bleu Paris). Growing up he prepared large family meals with his grandmothers and great aunt, then worked part time at his uncle’s restaurant. After graduation in Paris, Villarreal gained experience at Le Doyenne and La Maree before heading to the U.S. for a show-stopping start as chef de partie with Atlanta’s much-acclaimed (and much-missed) Joël. He later worked as executive chef at TAP before joining Blais at The Spence. Check out his demo this Saturday and pick up a couple new tricks (we’ve heard he’s got a few up his sleeves). You'll also pick up a spicy mushroom taco with pea shoots, spring onions, and herbs.
