Work Release 12 ~ Low Country Haute Cuisine

Downtown Seattle:
Work Release is a Dinner Series by Line Cooks, Sous Chefs, Chefs de Cuisines from around town who want to cook something outside their normal house of employment.  Chef Dezi of the Carlile Room asked them: "Work in a French bistro but want to make dumplings?  Ultra-fine dining all week got you in the mood to fry chicken on the weekend?  Or are you ready to try your hand at avante garde vegetarian Sri Lankan cuisine?  Nothing is off Limits."
We invite you to come taste something unexpected from the cooks you know and love.
Without further ado The Carlile Room presents Work Release.
Join us for Round 12 as Austin Smith a cook at the Carlile Room cooks his Low Country Haute Cuisine.
