Brewery Ommegang and Saveur Magazine are bringing their beer and food pairing showdown "Hop Chef" to the Cyclorama at the Boston Center for the Arts (539 Tremont St, Boston) on Wednesday June 26 at 7 p.m.
The lineup of Boston-area chefs includes Andy Husbands of Tremont 647, Michael Lombardi Jr. of The Salty Pig, Josh Smith of Franklin Cafe, Josh Harrison of Publick House and Brian Young of Citizen Public House. Each will create one dish showcasing their imaginative beer and food pairing skills. Yours truly will be a judge. The winner from each Hop Chef event around the country will compete in the main event later this summer.
Hop Chef Boston tickets are $60 before June 25 / $75 at the door. Admission include tasting dishes with open bar, with a portion of proceeds going to support the Boston Center for the Arts.
