For the past year, The Strand House in Manhattan Beach has been hosting in- and out-of-town chefs for a recurring dinner series they're calling "Culinary Masters." The French Laundry's Timothy Hollingsworth, Alain Giraud
, and Nancy Silverton
have all held court at the seaside restaurant.
This upcoming Monday, June 17, Chicago-based chef Rick Tramonto joins The Strand House's consulting chef Neal Fraser and executive chef Greg Hozinsky to prepare a five-course menu with wine pairings from Napa Valley's Trefethen winery. Dishes include burrata and caviar, roasted cod with clams and garbanzos, and braised short ribs with rutabaga puree. $100 per person gets diners the dinner; wine pairings are an additional $50 per person. RSVP required (310) 545-7470.
