Respecting The Product: A Vegetable-Forward Demo with Semilla

  • KitchenAid® Stage at Kinfolk 94 Wythe Avenue and 11th Street Brooklyn, NY 11249 United States (map)

Brooklyn's Semilla explores a "vegetable-forward” tasting menu all originating from a 400+ square food kitchen, with chef José Ramirez-Ruiz, pastry chef Pam Yung and their team creating imaginative plates that earned the restaurant a Michelin star in its first year.

Their philosophy goes beyond creativity though, it is about the technique of minimizing food waste by integrating often discarded or overlooked parts of a vegetable, such as the skin of an onion, and using that to complete a dish on the menu.

Join chef José Ramirez-Ruiz for a demo of one of his recent dishes and a window into his iteration process for adapting that dish to what is available in his kitchen, focus flavors and avoid wasting any part of the incredible produce they carefully source.
