|Marc Orfaly will be the guest chef at Bambara on June 11.|
It’s de rigueur if not good form for chefs to host guest chefs. In turn, Bambara’s Jay Silva welcomes Pigalle’s Marc Orfaly on June 11, when Orfaly will whip up a five-course menu featuring Middle East-inspired dishes like whole spring lamb with Greek yogurt, paired with wine (5:30-10 PM; $65 per person; 617-868-4444).
Though she won't be cooking, guest author Christine Chitnis will be part of the “Markets of New England” dinner at Beacon Hill Hotel & Bistro on June 14. Her book (of the same name) has inspired executive chef Josh Lewin to create a five-course dinner with each course inspired by one of the markets Chitnis describes in her book. Dishes include day boat scallop ceviche; sweet corn pudding; and braised Concord rabbit (7 PM; $75 per person, excluding tax and gratuity; 617-723-7575).
