Hello Lovely Diners~
Secret Kitchen would like to invite you to the first of our Fall Events! Our summer has been full of private parties and dinners and we’re happy to be open again to anyone who loves good food!
For this edition, we take our inspiration and play from an event that is quintessentially Bay Area: The Folsom Street Fair. As long time participants of the fair, we here in the kitchen didn’t have much trouble dreaming up a menu that delights and arouses the senses. It was fun to come up with a menu, inspired by our favorite aphrodisiac: chilies. Not only do chilies wake up the palate, but they go to work on the nervous system as well, heightening all of our senses, giving us a shot of adrenalin and stimulating us in ways nothing else can. Chilies are the Tango (the original “dirty dancing”) of the kitchen.
This month’s menu will bring you Pain, for sure, but that feeling will diminish with the wash of Pleasure that comes from every bite:
Anticucho y Camarones del Diablo
skewers of beef heart & shrimp rolled in dried chilies & grilled, served w. cumin crema
a delicious cold soup of almonds, grapes and garlic
Codorniz Relleno con Salsa de Higos Picoso
chorizo stuffed quail w. fiery fig sauce served w. patatas bravas & sautéed cactus
Pastel de Chocolate sin Harina con Chilies Candied y con Sorbete de Vainilla
flourless chocolate cake w. candied chilies & vanilla sorbet
As always, the location of dinner is Secret until 24 hours before service. Dinner will be served at 7:30pm, sharp! Doors open 30 minutes early for schmoozing and boozing. Secret Kitchen is a BYOB event, with water provided.
Date: Thursday, September 29th
Location: Oakland, CA
