If you consider yourself a beer enthusiast, you are familiar with the practically cult-like following that Russian River Brewing has developed. Russian River owners Natalie Cilurzo and Vinnie Cilurzo recently led a class this June, and we’ve decided to keep the Russian River flowing this August when Chef Brian Ricci of Philabundance returns to COOK. Ricci’s diverse cooking career began at NYC restaurateur Danny Meyer’s Indian-inspired Tabla. After moving to Philadelphia, Ricci held positions at Django, Supper, Pub & Kitchen, Kennett and Brick & Mortar, earning nods from Esquire and Travel & Leisure. Following a surprise welcome Russian River beer, enjoy a four-course dinner in which each plate uses the paired beer as an ingredient: beer brined boneless chicken thighs with chili maple glaze, paired with STS Pilsner; roast porchetta marinated in ale, fresh herbs and garlic, paired with Blind Pig IPA; grilled tri tip with sour ale  chimichurri, smoked paprika potatoes and chilled tomato salad, paired with Temptation Sour Blonde Ale; chamomile cake with Pliny The Elder buttercream, paired with, you guessed it, Pliny the Elder. Don’t miss this beer lover’s dream!
