Description
 
Booker’s Restaurant & Bar, the upscale Southern food spot in West Philly’s Cedar Park neighborhood, has a new chef in the kitchen – Kurt Evans, former sous chef at South, founder of the End Mass Incarceration Dinners and a co-founder of Cooks for the Culture. Kurt’s new menu is a modern take on Southern cuisine, using seasonal ingredients and contemporary techniques for classic dishes. Booker’s name is a reference both to the common African American surname and Booker Wright, a Black server at a whites-only restaurant in 1960’s Mississippi who appears in the 1966 documentary Mississipi: A Self-Portrait. A resident of Cedar Park, Kurt is proud to be part of a restaurant that is deeply committed to its geographic and cultural community. Join us for Kurt’s second COOK appearance as he prepares crawfish tartlet with spicy heirloom tomatoes, corn and basil; charred summer zucchini with whipped goat cheese and sunflower seed crisp; grilled whiting with succotash, fried okra and smoked corn sabayon; and an ice cream sandwich with cornmeal cookie, blueberry ice cream and lavender crème anglaise.
