Thomas Pisha-Duffly is just back from a culinary journey through Java, Bali and Lombok, and he wants to share what he learned about the cuisine with you.
Pisha-Duffly, a professional cook who has worked in Boston and at Hugo's right here in Portland, will be putting together a multi-course, family-style dinner inspired by his travels at Nosh Kitchen Bar on Feb. 23.
Among the dishes to be featured at this "Family Feast" event are Indonesia's celebrated fried chicken Ayam Goreng, goat coconut curry with roti, whole fish, a varietyof sambal, pickles, rice, sides, noodles, fritters and salads.
After dinner, guests will be served an array of Indonesian sweets and pastry with coffee from Tandem Coffee Roasters.
Pre-dinner snacks will be served when the doors open at 6 p.m. Dinner will be served promptly at 7 p.m.
Seating is limited, so reserving tickets through Eventbrite is recommended. The cost is $40 for the dinner, coffee and dessert. There will also be a full cash bar available.
Some of the proceeds will help support Sjaki-Tari-Us, a non-profit in Ubud, Bali that uses its full-service restaurant to educate youth with disabilities by providing them with salaried jobs preparing and serving food.
