Zak Pelaccio, Project 258, Cooking Demo at Siematic, Thurs., June 8, 5 pm

Join us Thurs., June 8, 5 pm at Siematic (444 King St.), as James Beard Award winner Zak Pelaccio will be in town to prepare a dish from his new cookbook Project 258: Making Dinner at Fish and Game (University of Texas Press, hb., 348 pp., $50).

Fish & Game restaurant in Hudson, New York, is a leader in the local foods movement. Its core approach—engaging intimately with nature both wild and domestic, building relationships with farmers, and exploring the joys of fermentation—is one of interest to anyone who yearns to cook and eat better food.

Project 258: Making Dinner at Fish & Game presents an enticing selection of seasonal recipes, profiles of key producers who supply the restaurant, and a fascinating, beautifully illustrated look at the processes—both intellectual and culinary—behind the food at Fish & Game. Taking no shortcuts, Pelaccio and his staff handcraft many staple ingredients, including fish sauce, vinegars, maple syrup, and prosciutto.

Pelaccio and his wife Jori Jayne are famed for building Brooklyn’s first gastro-pub, pioneering NYC’s nose-to-tail culinary movement, urban foraging and bringing Malaysian inspired food to the national mainstream. They now live in Upstate New York.
