A ticket to this dinner at home will include six courses — from sourdough bread to a trio of bite-sized sweets — with three dishes you’ll plate during the interactive dinner, such as a sea scallop from City Pier Seafood with fermented rice, preserved lemon, finishing salt from SalterieOne, and Giant Gorilla microgreens. Follow tips from Ungár, which will also delve into how to entertain like the chef. Cooks of all skill levels and ages are encouraged to join. The ingredients you receive are 90 percent prepared, with only the finishing touches done at home — and you’ll have the expert help from the chef on the screen. Purchase tickets online for curbside pick-up or contactless delivery (within 15 miles of Somerville) of your meal kits on the day of the experience.
