Freedom Beat’s Culinary Road Trip Travels Back East to the City of Brotherly Love
Chef Scott Commings Takes Passengers to the City of Philadelphia for His Monthly Sold-Out Dinner Series on Wednesday, August 23rd at Freedom Beat inside the Downtown Grand Hotel & Casino
Philadelphia Marks the Sixth Stop On This Culinary Excursion And Follows Last Month’s Wildly Successful Trip To Vintage Las Vegas!
LAS VEGAS – (August 9, 2017) – Five stops, five sell-outs, hundreds of happy passengers, and the joy ride continues as Chef Scott hops on the I-70 E and makes a beeline straight from last month’s Vintage Vegas cuisine, to the city of Philadelphia for his monthly Culinary Road Trip dinner series on Wednesday, August 23rd at Freedom Beat inside the Downtown Grand Hotel & Casino.
With Chef Scott always in control of the wheel for this intimate dinner series (maximum 25 guests) designed to be family-style and interactive, he faces his toughest challenge yet as he prepares a menu inspired by the city famous for its authentic palette, and infamous for once booing Santa Claus (America’s most beloved figure) at an Eagles game while chasing him off the field with a flurry of snow balls. [Yikes!] With that in mind, Commings has assembled a collection of dishes guaranteed to give him the home-field advantage, ensuring that the room is Always Sunny and filled with nothing but Brotherly Love.
The Beginnings will feature a Pennsylvania classic Dutch Platter, along with House Made Pierogi, Braunschweiger, and House Smoked Kielbasa; while the main course will serve up a host of Philadelphia’s best, including Classic Stromboli. For the “Philly Fanatics” in the room, the rivalry is in your hands as Chef Scott gives you a choice for the ages between two Philadelphia Cheesesteak landmarks; Geno’s or Pat’s, “But make sure you know how to order,” notes Commings. I’ll take one whiz without please.
