The African American Chefs Hall of Fame (formerly Chef Joe Randall’s Cooking School), 5409 Waters Avenue, will host its next event on Saturday, July 29 from 6:30 PM – 9:30 PM, featuring a return cooking demonstration by the first African American Certified Master Chef, Daryl Shular. Chef Shular also hosted an event at the Hall of Fame on July 8.
“Chef Daryl Shular is one of the most talented and respected chefs in the country, (but) also one of America’s elite history makers,” said Chef Joe Randall.
Including chefs like Shular, the African American Chefs Hall of Fame is a recognition program that celebrates the living history of African American chefs and highlights those individuals whose extraordinary contributions have made American cuisine possible.
Various aspects of the Hall of Fame have been available on the Chef Joe Randall’s Cooking School website for years, but with a physical building, guests can now view portraits and film footage of the selected inductees.
“There are some extraordinary people who have helped make American Cuisine an unparalleled platform for innovation that goes well beyond what we could have ever imagined,” said Chef Randall. “This program honors individuals who have pushed the boundaries to bring Southern Cookery to life and make it a desirable resource enjoyed by millions.”
The menu will include Appetizer: Pan Seared Sea Scallops with Golden Mushrooms, Butter English Peas, Truffle Jus and Cauliflower Chips, Salad: Heart of Romaine and Micro-Kale with Pickled Radishes, Cornbread-White Cheddar Crostini and a Jalapeno Buttermilk Vinaigrette, Entrée: Slow Cooked Beef Short Ribs with Epigram of Yukon Potatoes, Ginger Glazed Root Vegetables and a Bourbon-Thyme Jus, Dessert: Flambé of Charred Peach with Lavender-Carmel Sauce, White Corn-Ice Cream and Spiced Walnut Streusel
