Dine with Top Chefs at Wine. Dine. Donate 2009

Wine. Dine. Donate Dinner

A couple of months ago I got a chance to preview a number of dishes that Arnold Eric Wong was working on at E&O Trading Company. Wong came from Bacar and was completely overhauling the menu. His use of exotic ingredients such as an ahi tataki tartare with lily bulb petals, prawn salad with lychees and cashews and sesame eggplant with Thai basil put a fresh spin on familiar dishes. I liked the new menu so much I came back with friends and family not long after.

If you haven't been to E&O since Wong took over the kitchen, I hope you'll join me this Thursday night at the fourth Wine. Dine. Donate fundraiser dinner for Feeding America, with a donation directed to one of my favorite charities, the San Francisco Food Bank. You'll also be dining with the fabulous Epicurious Editor-in-chief Tanya Steel.

In the kitchen will not only be Arnold Eric Wong but Charles Phan of Slanted Door and Martin Yan of Yan Can Cook! The kitchen is open to the restaurant so you'll see the chefs cooking together after meeting them during a cocktail and hors d'oeuvres reception. After the reception, indulge in a multi-course dinner accompanied by cool beers from Stella Artois, Hoegaarden and Leffe plus wines from New Zealand.
