Nashville-based Chef Launches Mexican Culinary Adventures Dinner Series
This is reason No. 145,938,004 why Nashville’s culinary landscape merits your attention.
Chef Kaelin Ulrich Trilling (of the Mexican restaurant Bajo Sexto Taco Lounge) and Matt Bolus (of the Southern-influenced 404 Kitchen) are proud to present a collaborative Mexican Culinary Adventures Dinner Series launching this Wednesday, March 15.
To kick off the series, chefs Trilling and Bolus will present a four-course menu that pays homage to Mexican culinary culture and takes guests on a south-by-south-of-the-border adventure.
The Mexican Culinary Adventures Dinner will be hosted by chef Trilling and team at Bajo Sexto Taco Lounge in Sylvan Park and will feature guest chefs, dinner series, cooking classes, and special menus — all celebrating Mexico’s diverse heritage and culinary and beverage traditions.
Guests at the first dinner will choose between two dishes per course, starting with a winter vegetable salad or a snapper ceviche, followed by a choice of foie gras or grilled octopus tacos. For entrées, choose between a charred flank steak and a whole roasted chicken before finishing with Oaxacan chocolate ice cream and churros for dessert. Specially crafted cocktails are the I Woke Up In Tijuana, featuring Sazerac rye offset with lemon and cayenne, and the Last Oaxacan, a citrusy mezcal cocktail.
The dinner will start at 6:30 p.m. with cocktails and passed appetizers (including polpettine and duck carnitas fritters). The four-course meal costs $65 per person (plus tax and gratuity).
