George Mendes, chef and owner of Michelin-starred Aldea, introduces us to the world of Portuguese cuisine. He shares stories and recipes which are inspired by the wealth of culinary resources in Portugal—fresh seafood, savory meats and crisp vegetables.

Named one of Food & Wine magazine's ten "Best New Chefs" in 2011, George Mendes is regularly featured in national newspapers, magazines and websites, along with television appearances, including a run on Bravo's "Top Chef Masters."

George will be signing copies of his new book My Portugal following the event.

 

Brief Bios

George Mendes is a Michelin-starred chef and owner of Aldea in New York City. Named one of Food & Wine magazine's ten "Best New Chefs" in 2011, Mendes is regularly featured in national newspapers, magazines and websites, along with television appearances, including a run on Bravo's "Top Chef Masters."

Francis Lam is Editor-at-Large at Clarkson Potter and a judge on "Top Chef Masters." Previously, he served as the Features Editor at Gilt Taste, which was awarded six IACP awards and four James Beard award nominations in its first two years. His own writing has been nominated for three James Beard awards and four IACP awards, winning three, but he knows all this talk of awards is a little tacky. In past lives, he was a commentator on the Cooking Channel's "Food(ography)," a contributing editor at Gourmet magazine (RIP) and his work has appeared in the 2006-2013 editions of Best Food Writing. He believes that, in professional football, that would count as a dynasty; in ancient China, not so much. Lam resides in New York City and tweets at @francis_lam.

 
 

This event is part of our Kitchen Arts & Letters series. In partnership with the esteemed culinary bookstore, we present talks, demos and tastings with leading cookbook authors, chefs, food historians and farmers. See the complete line-up here.
