Mayflower Brewing and Tavolo Ristorante Team Up!

One of our favorite restaurants, Tavolo, is hosting a cool beer/cooking event with one of our favorite craft breweries on March 19th!

Just in case we didn't get enough lamb at Lamb Jam last month (which Adam and I have yet to post about but will be doing shortly!)....Mayflower Brewing and Tavolo have teamed up to offer a class on butchery followed by a delicious lamb lunch with beer pairings.

American Lamb Cooking/Butchery Class @ Tavolo
& 3-Course Lunch with Mayflower Beer Pairings

On Saturday, March 19th, 12:00 - 2:00 pm
Chefs Nuno Alves and Chris Douglass, two huge supporters of nose to tail cooking, will be demonstrating their formidable knife skills at a butchery and cookery class at Tavolo.
As soon as guests arrive, promptly at 12:00pm, they'll be welcomed with a pint of Mayflower beer and American Lamb Sausage Pizza with sheep’s milk ricotta, piri piri and onion. Chefs Douglas and Alves will then break down a whole lamb, explaining how it’s done and where the various cuts – ribs, shoulder, chop etc. – can be found and how best to prepare each one.
After the 45 minute class, guests will sit down to a 3 course lunch celebrating American Lamb and paired with Mayflower Beer...

First Course
Mayflower Beer Braised Lamb Ribs
with citrus slaw, balsamic glaze, spicy nuts
Second Course
Lamb Shoulder Ravioli
with local ricotta, chard, pecorino
Third Course
Lamb Rib Chop with farro salad,
olives, arugula, lamb jus

Mayflower beer pairings to be determined.

Tickets to this class are $45 and are available online at http://shop.bostonchefs.com


Chris Douglass knows his lamb (he performed a meticulous butchery demonstration at Lamb Jam), Tavolo knows amazingly prepared food, and Mayflower knows delicious, fresh craft beer - so this is a winnning combination if you ask me! Hope there will be more of this sort of thing in the future!
