When: Friday, July 10th – 6-8pm only

Who: Chef Matthew Mathlage, chef/owner of Light Bistro

Where: Ingenuity’s VIP area, 1226 Huron at Playhouse Square

What: Chef Mathlage will demonstrate the transformative powers of what’s often called molecular gastronomy by creating small plates of monochromatic food for guests in the VIP lounge to enjoy. Using five techniques and five ingredients, Chef Mathlage will create lavender infused beets sous vide, blackberry leather, hibiscus liquid gel, and Campari crumble. The color? PURPLE, which is inspired by the 18th century French gourmand and food writer Jean Anthelme Brillat-Savarin who called it the color of inspiration.
