LAKELY LOVES… Hmong Cuisine
Wednesday Jun. 20th, 2018 | 6pm
Join us as Chef Nathan Berg gets out of the driver’s seat and hands the wheel over to Lakely cook Tony Moua. Tony will be preparing a six-course dinner that will feature a number of traditional Hmong dishes, some just slightly tweaked to accommodate the ingredients available here in western Wisconsin. The impetus for this dinner was a dish Tony created for our anniversary dinner last October, in which he made a traditional larb salad, but replaced the toasted rice with our local wild rice and replaced the standard ocean fish with whitefish from these parts. That dish was so incredible that we (well, Jorja) thought it was worthy of exploring this concept as a full-fledged Lakely Loves… We all expect to learn a lot about Hmong food traditions, while also discovering ways in which we can put a local twist on these foods to create dishes that can honor both Hmong heritage AND our local foodshed. And what better time than June, when local greens and vegetables are popping out of the ground in full force? The bar will also be whipping up a few speciality cocktails/beverages for the evening that will focus heavily on the flavors featured in Hmong cuisine. This is definitely a one-of-a-kind (first of its kind?) dining experience that we’re incredibly excited to offer! We’re already about 75% booked so if you want to get in, you’d better hurry and call for your reservations soon!
