Park Hyatt Washington D.C. will host a Spring 2017 Park Hyatt Masters of Food & Wine: Great American Craftsmanship, a seasonal culinary and beverage experience on March 24. This culinary gathering salutes the ingredients, flavors and talents of local chefs, and the artistry of American designer Thos. Moser.
Guests will join newly appointed executive chef Troy Knapp and Blue Duck Tavern chef de cuisine Brad Deboy for an evening of carefully sourced and artfully prepared culinary delights paired to match the craftsmanship of Thos. Moser’s renowned handmade American furniture.
The evening will begin in the Thos. Moser showroom with welcome cocktails, inspired by woods used to create original Thos. Moser’s original designs, paired with house-made charcuterie. Next, the group will continue to the living room for appetizers and wine, followed by a seated chef’s table dinner where one will have the opportunity to talk with Knapp and the Thos. Moser team about each of the dishes they’ve sampled, designs they’ve seen, and the connection between these two great arts.
As a very unique feature to the event, a Thos. Moser craftsman from Maine will be handcrafting and assembling a piece of furniture in the showroom. This will mirror the creation of dishes and drinks from the Park Hyatt Washington team in the same space.
Guests will conclude the evening with wine and cheese, and desserts presented on a handcrafted Thos. Moser bookshelf. This final sweet ending will be the artful work of pastry chef Erin Reed. Each course will have wine selected by Knapp, a trained sommelier, and will include wine pairings from Boekenhoutskloff Winery, located in Franschhoek Valley, South Africa, as well as many others.
