Chef Dominique Crenn is a fan of collaboration, in art just as much as in food, and this month she's launching a series of dinners in which she and another chef from a different city and background will create a "dialogue" on the stage of her restaurant via a collaborative meal. The first in these series of culinary conversations, on March 28 and 29, will feature Crenn cooking alongside Berlin chef Miles Watson of Pure Berlin. Much as Crenn founded her restaurant as an "atelier" or workshop, focused on evoking some of the flavors of her childhood in Northern France, Pure Berlin is a "culinary design studio" that focuses on rediscovering forgotten German dishes and "reworking them to captivate the younger generation with familiar tastes and aromas."
These first two Dialogue dinners will consist of eleven courses, five from each chef with a final collaborative course, which the always poetic Crenn hopes will create "a pas de deux of art and conversation." Tickets are $300, including pairings, or $200 without.
Get tickets for the Pure Berlin dinners at Atelier Crenn here, and note that both will begin at 6 p.m.
Though future dates aren't nailed down, future Dialogues will likely feature chefs John Fraser (Dovetail, NYC), Ryan Clift (Tippling Club, Singapore), and Kobe Desramaults (In De Wulf, Belgium), and Carlo Miriarchi (Roberta's, NYC).
