Existential Eating is collaborating with Swallowtail supper club for a special Cha kaiseki inspired dinner at Grapes & Soda February 24! There will be a pescatarian and vegan option for this dinner and a very limited number of seats so reserve your tickets ASAP! Stay tuned for ticket release on this one!
The meaning of the word “kaiseki” is banquet so we are designing an elegant evening to celebrate of the beautiful food that the Pacific Northwest has to offer. It is traditionally very important to prepare the food thoughtfully, respecting and bringing out the flavours of each ingredient to bring them together without overpowering anything.
Taking inspiration from the traditional Cha Kaiseki ceremony we will be serving a 6 course meal ending with traditional Japanese matcha. The goal of the meal is to prepare your stomach for the tea (which will not sit well on an empty or full stomach) so you can enjoy the ceremony and Omotenashi (thoughtful service & the best treats for the guests.) We will be serving sake and beer as well throughout the dinner.
