Slow Food Columbus presents…
Off the Menu: An Offal Evening at Basi

Our Off the Menu series recognizes the fact that consumers bear some responsibility for what ends up on the plate at restaurants. We offer chefs an audience for the food that they’re most passionate aboutÃ¢â‚¬â€whether it’s ultra-traditional, experimental, cutting-edge, or just the sort of thing that lights up a food geekÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s eyes.
We are very excited to announce our next Off the Menu event, An Offal Evening at Basi, on April 6th, 2011. John Dornback, owner and chef of Basi Italia, is a longtime friend of Slow Food Columbus and a passionate supporter of local foods. Johnny and his team are bringing an exciting menu of offal meats to diners, highlighting the rich and delicious flavors of organ meats. With a seven-course tasting menu featuring sweetbreads, cheeks, monkfish liver, bone marrow and more, this is a rare opportunity to experience unique, and often overlooked, flavors.

I won’t be able to make to it, but for people for looking menus that challenge what we see elsewhere, here you go…but at a discounted price? Too good to be true.March 31, 2011 4:51 pm at 4:51 pm #438198
Thanks, I’ll pass the kind words along to the chef.

oooo, I would love to go to this (although the lamb hearts give me some pause) if I hadn’t just paid tuition (and bought my books–THAT is a racket). stupid sexy educationApril 1, 2011 1:22 am at 1:22 am #438201
