NEW TASTING DINNER SERIES LURES ADVENTUROUS EATERS
As part of Missoula Feast Week, Moonlight Kitchens is offering its inaugural Tasting Dinner on November 11, 2017, from 6-9pm. This will be a traditional Italian 10-course dinner catered by Crave Catering & Cakes, with paired wines presented by Wine Guy Mike. Cost is $50/person and reservations are required. Limit 14. The venue is intimate and casual with a fireplace and a direct view into the kitchen.
The event is the first in a series of Tasting Dinners that Moonlight Kitchens will offer this winter that feature gourmet items such as chocolate, olive oil, cheese, balsamic vinegar, and charcuterie. Guest chefs and food professionals will provide insight into the history, geography, and culture of each selection. Seasonal, local ingredients are featured and a percentage of reservation sales will benefit the Community Food & Agriculture Coalition.
While Moonlight Kitchens is set up to accommodate commercial users, it’s also easy to use for non-professionals. The cooking equipment is “hurkier” than residential stuff which means food gets hotter or colder faster.
We are seeking food entrepreneurs and artisans who love the art of food. If you are looking for an inspiring home base to cook, bake, and create in a supportive environment Moonlight Kitchens is for you. We are particularly looking for people who want to source local and organic ingredients as a large part of their production philosophy. Missoula’s food scene is booming and we make every effort to help our new cooks thrive.
Moonlight Kitchens is designed for commercial cooking but individuals can use the kitchens for group cooking and canning, girls-night-out or a unique birthday party, and personal projects. Chefs can use the space to test recipes or create an intimate dinner.
We offer a variety of cooking classes to the public and collaborate with local businesses on regular “openings” that promote our cooks’ products. We also work with our local farmers to offer bulk purchasing and seasonal specials to reduce ingredient costs and improve flavor.
