From a.kitchen:

On Tuesday, Nov. 21, Chef Eli Collins will host a fun and tasty Cider & Choucroute Fest at a.kitchen (135 S. 18th St). In what will become an annual pre-Thanksgiving tradition, the restaurant will pour European ciders to complement a three-course meal centered around hearty plates of Chef Collins’ modern-traditional Choucroute Garnie for $40 per person.

 The meal will include:

  • Salade Lyonnaise with lardon, egg and bitter greens
  • Choucroute Garnie, house-fermented sauerkraut simmered in Riesling with pork loin, pork belly, apples and autumn vegetables
  • Poached Pears with crème anglaise

The bar will also feature three ciders, from Brittany, the Loire Valley and Spain’s Basque region, highlighting a range of styles, alongside a variety of Alsatian wines ideal for complementing the choucroute.
