Far Feast: A Three Day Event

Sign up now for Food Lovers Weekend— Far Feast: Foods from Asia, Authentic or Not-  October 19- 21, 2018

Because it's a major seaport city influenced by the Pacific Rim with decades of settlement by immigrants from Japan, Southeast Asia, and other countries, Seattle has been deeply influenced by Asian cuisines, as have the Tom Douglas Restaurants Chefs and the Hot Stove Team.

We’ve cooked our way through traditional tomes on Asian cooking, and we’ve been just as delighted with modern books by hip young chefs. So, for this edition of Food Lovers Weekend, we’re taking an Old School/ New School approach to a vast and sophisticated cuisine.

Who doesn’t want to eat duck buns from Momofuku, chicken wings from Pok Pok, Kung Pao pastrami from Mission Street Chinese, or crab rice with charred green onion from a classic book on clay pot cooking?

We never tire of these foods and flavors. Isn’t it time to take your tastes buds on an Old School/New School tour of the Asian continent?

Each day is packed with delicious, informative culinary fun: back to back demos, substantial tastes of everything plus exciting beverage pairings and loads of super cool stuff to make and take.  A rough outline of your three-day weekend in Seattle looks like this: (Note that times are approximate)

All participants will also receive a “Chef’s Field Guide to Seattle” from Tom Douglas, highlighting under-the-radar and classic Northwest food, wine, and cultural experiences from the man who knows them best.

Our Food Lovers Weekends will be held at James Beard Award Winner Tom Douglas’ cooking school, Hot Stove Society. Sessions include cooking demonstrations by our talented Tom Douglas Restaurants Chef Team and special guests plus wine tastings and hands-on cooking technique classes.

Hot Stove Society is located inside downtown’s stylish Hotel Ändra on 4th and Virgina. In addition to being in the center of our restaurant campus, it is also a great starting point for walks to the Pike Place Market, Seattle Art Museum, and several beautiful downtown neighborhoods.
