Treading Art and chef David Bulman of Plated Trade team up for our final event of the season
Summer's almost over. The days are getting shorter; freshmen will soon be swarming Oakland; some of us will stop wearing white (wait, really? Nevermind). But before we say goodbye to summer, we're celebrating the season with one last hurrah - and heirloom tomato salad, goat cheese-thyme ice cream, tomato powder, lemon gel.
That's just one culinary creation on the menu for our upcoming August 16 and 18 Studio Dinner Series. Chef David Bulman of Plated Trade is back by popular demand with another outstanding menu. This time guests will enjoy five courses that seamlessly blend sweet and savory, make good use of cream (resistance is futile), and fresh accents from the chef's own garden.
Chef Bulman, of French Laundry / Verde / Dinner Lab fame, describes Plated Trade as a "dynamic culinary service" that emphasizes social and environmental impact. They even use reusable packaging to reduce trash. And they do everything from prepared meals, catering, private dining, and... barbecue! We can't get enough.
PLATED TRADE is a new style food service from Chef David Bulman, cooking up locally sourced and prepared meals directly to consumers in non-traditional community settings, such as their homes and creative community spaces.
But what's a great meal without great atmosphere? (That's like putting a beautiful painting in a cheap frame. Just don't.) To complete the experience we're being hosted in the beautiful studio of architect Page Thomas, a neighbor in our Susquehanna Street studios.
Best of all, all proceeds directly support Radiant Hall's operations. That means directly helping Pittsburgh's amazing, hard-working artists, like our Lawrenceville artist friend Gavin:
"Radiant Hall allows us to be artists, not worrying about a building and what to do if the heat goes out. For a good price, someone else fixes things for you. That’s an awesome service.”
