Marcus Samuelsson Cooks With Govind Armstrong at Post & Beam

Samuelsson, from Harlem to the Hills
You don't have to travel to New York to taste mega-chef Marcus Samuelsson's menu from Red Rooster Harlem, at least not on February 26 you don't. He'll be right here, in Baldwin Hills, cooking with chef Govind Armstrong at Post & Beam. The two have teamed up to commemorate Black History Month and support C-CAP, the Careers through Culinary Arts Program, which works with public schools across the country to prepare underserved youth for careers in the hospitality industry.

The one-night only dinner will feature dishes from both chefs repertoires, using produce and herbs from the restaurant's on-site garden as well as from the South Central Farmers' Cooperative. That means Armstrong's California soul food and Samuelsson's uniquely American cuisine, including things like Ethiopian tacos with injera bread and tartare, braised oxtail with fried plantains, and crawfish beignets with honey-beet sauce. A selection of cocktails and wines will be available for pairing. The evening begins at 7 PM. Tickets are $140 per person and can be purchased here.
