To Your Health: Wellness Class for Hospitality Professionals

We work in an industry that is not known for a focus on the health and wellness of its workers.  Many of us experience depression, anxiety, addiction, eating disorders, and other challenges.  We believe we can change this culture through community-building and self-care. Let’s get together to connect with and support one another.  This is an interactive session and includes relaxation techniques such as light yoga and breathing.  This will go about an hour and will be facilitated by Nalini Mehta, James Beard Women in Food Mentorship recipient, ayurvedic chef and ambassador for the Happiness Project.

Ayurveda Cuisine Pop Up Dinner

Ayurveda Cuisine Pop Up Dinner

You are invited to savor authentic Ayurvedic cuisine on Monday, January 22nd from 5:30-8:30pm, curated by Nalini Mehta (Founder, Route To India and James Beard Foundation Grantee for Women In Culinary Leadership Program).  Women Chefs making this beautiful sumptous dinner are Chefs Kristi Varner of Squeaky Willow Farm and Kate Brock, a certified health chef and caterer.

Ticket price: $50 includes Three Course Dinner and Mocktail+ Tax (alcohol and gratuity not included).  Please email sarahjane@bartmanngroup.com to reserve your table!  

A credit card is required to hold your reservation.  Cancellations are accepted until 24 hours prior to event.

We are making it a day of wellness, celebrating your health.  Prior to the dinner please join us for yoga and meditation from 4pm -5.15pm.

About Ayurvedic Cooking:

 Ayurvedic cooking is the yoga of food. Health and wellness is the foundation of this holistic cuisine and practice. Ayurveda emphasizes eating seasonal, plant based, and local foods as a means of benefitting the community and environment, which aligns this 5000 year-old approach to eating modern ideas about healthy eating and food systems. Uniquely, Ayurvedic eating encourages mindfulness around all aspects of a meal, including the health and wellbeing of the chefs in the kitchen, the process and techniques of cooking, and the sustainability and quality of ingredients of the food. Equally important however, is how specific foods can bring balance to the mind and body. Ayurveda encourages each person to eat for a life of balance based upon his or her own body. In Ayurveda, food is medicine; it heals the body from within. 

Each guest will enjoy a personalized dining experience by taking a quiz to learn your specific dosha, or mind and body personality type.  The night of the event, your three-course dinner will be made to suit your unique Ayurvedic dosha. For example, if your body is more firey and you consider yourself a Type A perfectionist, you’ll eat dishes that calm you down. Or if you’re more earthy, we'll make foods that perk you up! Eating for your body type means that the vital energies of the foods will enhance your prana, or your life force energy, recharging your mind, body and soul.

*Parties of 5 or more are invited to dine at our community table. Reservations of 1-4 persons available from 6pm-8:30pm.

Please email sarahjane@bartmanngroup.com to reserve your table for this unique and enchanting dining experience.

Khmai-Yan Cuisine: 
Kamayan (Kuh-MY-an), A Filipino feast using your hands is an influence in the style of food we cook. As the Chef being half Khmer and Thai, as well as being engaged to a BEAUTIFUL Filipino woman, I will be preparing food with an interpretation of South East Asian dishes in a refined fun casual way. Being trained in casual to high-end restaurants, we will offer a variety of menus depending upon our clientele and space we are offered to utilize.

What we have to offer:
My vision for refined, casual South East Asian cuisine served with astounding hospitality is something I have not yet discovered in the twin cities. Our goal is to offer a whole new style of cuisine in this area to provide an experience for guests that they may not be able to find anywhere else.

Union Kitchen Pop-Up at The Bird - 5pm-9pm

Union Kitchen Pop-Up at The Bird - 5pm-9pm

Union Kitchen is, well... a kitchen. But what if a kitchen was more than the sum of its parts? More than the counters, sinks, and appliances that fill a space? What if a kitchen was the idea that a person’s life shapes the way they cook?

Union Kitchen is that idea. We cook from who we are. We train others to do the same. When we make a meal to share with you– we share our very selves.

Food is meant for more than survival. It tells us a story. It’s a story carved on wooden boards and written with folded steel. Food is scrawled in searing heat and revised with measured time. It’s a story poured from uncorked journeys and seasoned with aged strife.

Combining local traditions with those from back home, Union Kitchen will bring Hmong flavors to American palates – and forge a new expression all our own.

Chefs Yia Vang and Chris Her of Union Kitchen will be serving a special menu from 5pm-9pm.  Beer, wine and cocktail pairings available.  Reservations and tickets are not required for the pop-up.

MENU

Char Siu Banh Mi
Baguette, Char Siu Pork, Pate, Pickled Carrots and Radish, Cilantro, Jalapeno, Aioli
