Jason Dady, chef and owner of Umai Mi in San Antonio, and Andrew Wiseheart, co-owner and executive chef at Contigo restaurant in Austin, will be cooking together during this one-of-a-kind event here on March 18.
The two chefs were both inspired by their parents’ favorite Chinese dishes they were introduced to when they were young. They’ll be alternating courses of an Asian-inspired dinner called “My Parents’ Chinese” featuring items such as kung pao pickled shrimp and a version of orange chicken that includes blood orange, red-pepper jam, green onions and crisp duck skin.
The six-course menu, with wine, will be at Umai Mi – Modern Asian Fare at 555 W. Bitters Road (in back of The Alley shops on Bitters).
The reception begins at 6:30 p.m. with dinner beginning at 7. Dinner is $55 per person. For reservations call Umai Mi at 210-496-0555.
