Park Hyatt Washington will host Park Hyatt Masters of Food & Wine, a seasonal culinary experience on Sunday, June 24, saluting the ingredients, flavors, and talents of local chefs, and regional artisans and producers. This special gastronomic event will feature a farm-fresh breakfast, educational cooking demonstration, and walking tour of the famed Dupont Circle FRESHFARM Market.
Celebrate the start of summer with a harvest breakfast, from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m., on Blue Duck Tavern’s spacious outdoor terrace, surrounded by a bountiful herb garden. Gathered around the restaurant’s communal wood table, participants will enjoy an assortment of regional ingredients such as hand-harvested Amish eggs from Path Valley in Pennsylvania; dairy products from Trickling Springs Creamery, a Mennonite Source in Pennsylvania; and artisan cheese from Everona Dairy in Virginia. Additionally, guests will be treated to Executive Chef Sebastien Archambault & Chef de Cuisine John Melfi’s new arrivals on the breakfast menu, including Short Rib Hash and Horseradish Sauce; and Fried Chicken Liver with Poached Eggs, Grits and Sweet Pepper Relish.
After breakfast, the group will walk a few blocks to the Dupont Circle FRESHFARM Market to watch Chefs Sebastien & John create a Chilled Cucumber and Crab Meat Soup; and Heirloom Tomato Tartar using farm-fresh goat cheese and basil sorbet, sourced directly from the Market. Following the Chef at Market demo, Bernie Prince, co-founder of FRESHFARM Markets will lead the group on a tour of the Dupont Circle Market, providing guests with the opportunity to interact with the local artisans and to purchase locally-produced vegetables, fruit, baked bread and seafood.
