On Saturday, February 20, at 11:00 AM CST, join Chef/ Partner Mychael Bonner (Saranello’s, Di Pescara, Petterino’s, and The Ivy Room) as he welcomes Chef Lucie “Lulu” Ugbebor, founder of A.O. Bistro for a celebration of Black and African-American cuisine in honor of Black History Month. Chef Lucie will teach participants about the flavors of West African cuisine and how to fuse them into Chef Mychael’s Classic Roasted Chicken. Learn about the chefs’ culinary journeys and the influence of their families’ heritage on their cooking, as they guide you through a live cooking demo. Guests will have the opportunity to interact with the chefs throughout the cooking and conversation.
It is free to register for this special virtual event! For those that want to enjoy the meal from the chefs alongside the demo, there is an option to add on the chef-prepared meal kit that includes Kale Salad with roasted root vegetables and balsamic vinegar, Lulu’s Roasted Chicken, and a Brown Butter Pound Cake with salted caramel gelato for dessert. The meal kit is $34.95 per person, plus tax, and can be picked up at The Ivy Room (12 E. Ohio St., Chicago, IL) on Friday, February 19 at 5:00 PM or 6:00 PM.
