I would accept an invitation to watch the okra grow at Springdale Farm. So, I jumped at the chance to attend an A Torrid Affair dinner there (one of many more to come). Great food, perfect setting and for all the right reasons.
Austin, Texas based charity supperclub A TORRID AFFAIR has announced plans for its inaugural dinner event, set for Monday, September 26 on the beautiful grounds of East Austin’s Springdale Farm (755 Springdale Road). The brainchild of Péché executive chef Jason Dodge and former Péché mixologist Michael Menley, A TORRID AFFAIR’s mission is to raise money for the Dell Children’s Medical Center through the hosting of intimate dining events in Austin while increasing awareness of the benefits of local, sustainable agriculture.
Bringing together the best chefs and mixologists in Austin to create its one-of-a-kind dinner menus and pairing each course with a specialty cocktail — each created using only the freshest local, farm-to-table ingredients and Texas spirits — A TORRID AFFAIR delivers a unified dining and cocktail experience fusing passion and purpose. Guests will enjoy the finest quality and creativity in the dishes and cocktails presented by A TORRID AFFAIR and the supperclub’s commitment to providing both A-level service and personal interaction with the very creators of the original menus will result in an unparalleled dining adventure.
The September 26 A TORRID AFFAIR launch will feature a wonderful menu of paired courses conceived and designed by both Dodge and Menley, while future ATA supperclub events will highlight the talents of chefs and mixologists such as Bryce Gilmore of Barley Swine and Chauncy James of The East Side Show Room.
