Chef Marcus Samuelsson celebrates book with four course dinner at C-House

What do boiled peanuts, pork empanadas and pan seared salmon with tamarind soy vinaigrette have in common? A symbolic presence in the cultural melting pot of American cuisine through the ages, and a place on the incredible menu for Chef Marcus Samuelsson's return to his Chicago establishment, C-House.

On January 18, guests will have the opportunity to celebrate Samuelsson's latest recipe collection, New American Table, a thoughtful and rich journey into America's local kitchens and diverse taste stories.

The evening, hosted by the chef/ owner himself, along with Executive Chef Nicole Pederson and Pastry Chef Toni Roberts, begins at 6:30 p.m. with a cocktail reception, followed by a four course dinner inspired by the book's creative cuisine. 

The meal unfolds as a culinary journey reflecting Samuelsson's innovative spirit. Goose Island craft beers have been selected and paired with each course, with a brew master in attendance to describe each selection.

The meal ends on a sweet note- look forward to banana bread pudding, served with rum hot chocolate ice cream and tandoori nut brittle. Invoking the comforts of home, the warmth that embodies the American table across diverse cultures, what better way to capture the essence of this recipe collection.

The cocktail reception and dinner cost $65 per person, or $85 with an autographed copy of New American Table included.

C-House is located at 166 East Superior Street. Reservations are required, call 312-523-0923.
