Wednesday, February 22, 7pm: We’ll School Ya in Puglia with Ned Maddock of Brigantessa

Price $175.00

Seats Remaining:SOLD OUT

Puglia is not just the heel of Italy. It’s a sun-bleached region of both bountiful farmland and Italy’s longest coastline. With plenty of sun, fertile soil, and a flat landscape, Puglia is ideal farming territory, producing around 40% of Italy's olive oil and a large portion of its wine. If Puglia is off your radar, or if you’re already in-the-know about this road less traveled, we invite you to a culinary tour of Italy’s breadbasket with Ned Maddock, Chef de Cuisine of East Passyunk Avenue’s Brigantessa. A Pennsylvania native, Ned began his cooking career several working with several James Beard award-winning chefs in Chicago including Top Chef Stephanie Izard. Locally, Ned’s experience landed him a spot in the Vetri Family restaurant group as Executive Sous Chef at Amis Trattoria, followed by a post as Executive Sous Chef at Lo Spiedo. Immediately prior to Brigantessa, Ned served as Chef de Cuisine at the acclaimed XIX, located on the 19th floor of the Hyatt at the Bellevue. Join us this February as Ned serves up Pugliese preparations, including Bruschetta con Gameri (chopped prawns on toast); Red Wine Orecchiette with Sausage and Broccoli Rabe; Slow Roasted Goat with Grilled Dough; and Torta Di Limone (lemon olive oil cake). Mangia! Mangia!
