Some call him a culinary artist, others a charcuterie craftsman and, according to Philadelphia Magazine, “Andrew Wood is a pig-whisperer” worthy of their 2012 Best of Philly award. The carving and curing expert won a 2010 Best of Philly nod for his charcuterie program at Fork before opening his own restaurant and temple of pig, Russet, balanced by his partner, wife and pastry chef Kristin.
In this delicious celebration of all things seafood, Andrew teams up with James Macknight of the sustainable food purveyors River and Glen. James has hand-selected seasonal, fresh fish for the evening’s 4-course meal prepared by Andrew, including a house-smoked fish, a handmade seafood-based pasta dish and a communal whole fish baked in a salt crust. Enjoy a relaxed BYOB vibe as you savor the delicate flavors of the sea in this one-of-a-kind feast.
