Produce Alliance Pop-Up Dinner Series

On October 5th, 2016, the Produce Alliance office in Chicago temporarily transformed itself into an intimate 5-course tasting menu concept, to launch the PA Pop Up Dinner Series. The PA Pop Dinner Series is a culinary initiative dedicated to celebrating creativity and innovation across the produce industry.  With the goal of re-imagining culinary boundaries these Pop-Up Dinners showcase a vast array of innovative dishes, bringing together the excitement and enjoyment of the fresh produce industry and the Chefs and Growers that help set the bar for the future.

The first PA Pop Up Dinner featured a wide variety of Mann Packing products in every course, including their brand new Tenderbite® Green Beans and RomaCrunch® lettuce.  The menu was curated by an A-List team of Chicago Chefs, led by PA’s Executive Chef, Chef Stephanie Golfarb, Chef Nariba Shepard, line cook at Greenriver, and Mixologist Yolondra Yarborough, Bar Chef at GreenRiver and distiller at CH Distillery.  Chef Stephanie worked with her collaborators to create an unforgettable event to kick off this series.

Produce Alliance is delighted to be a part of these boundary pushing events that will continue to bring together the industry’s best and brightest in setting new trends and re-inventing old standards.  Stay tuned for information about our next PA Pop Up Dinner.

Coming up with a menu for this dinner wasn’t the hard part. The hard part was narrowing down all of my ideas! I was deeply inspired by the Mann products, some of which I never had the chance to cook with before. It reminded me of how I cook on cooking competition shows; “Here are 5 ingredients. Show us how delicious they can be. Go!” My team and I all unanimously agreed on a pan-Asian inspired menu because we knew that savory ingredients like fish sauce, dashi, citrus, and soy would highlight the inherent freshness and vibrancy of the ingredients we were given. The rest was pure fun! We hoped to offer a variety of textures, proteins, and cooking methods to dazzle our guests, while showcasing the beautiful Mann produce. The entire experience was a blast for us!
— Goldfarb: Reflecting on the creative process of developing the menu.
