An Aromatic Tasting at Hen of the Wood

The Butcher Room at Hen of the Wood was an amazing place to create and serve an Aromatic meal! Our collaboration with Chef Jordan Ware and the Hen team allowed us to create a sensory journey like no other. 5 courses paired with cocktails and everything enhanced or transformed with Aromatics. Thank you to everyone who came and keep an eye out for more Aromatic food experiences soon!

Oysters with a pickled watermelon cucumber are the perfect way to start the evening. An amuse with scents of the ocean. Chef Jordan Ware works next to the guests to provide a wonderful connection with the food.

To complement the green notes of South East Asia is a green tea cocktail with honey and dry sake. It bubbles and steams as if it is hot, yet it is served cold, starting the theme of the evening that nothing is quite what it seems!

"A Tale of Two Forks"- Jordan's amazing beet, whipped ricotta, cured egg yolk, and nasturtium powder salad is accompanied by 2 separate forks with scent pads. Each fork has a different Flavor Elixir on them. As you bring the fork to your mouth, your nose registers the a different aroma and you get a different flavor experience. The same salad 'served' two different ways

The quail, apple, and sweet potato course with the A&M prototype for visible aroma. The smoke aromatics bringing out depth. This was paired with bourbon, lapsang souchon and lemon. This course is all about earthy smokiness.

The Saddlebag Boulvardier: Super chilled with dry ice and matched with Leather, Tobacco, Cocoa, Birch Tar and Pink Peppercorn Elixir. It takes a classic bourbon drink and makes it a rich cowboy drink. Poured table side and misted in stages

Pairing with a cowboy Boulvardier required an amazing rabbit roulade with mustard greens, and celeriac puree.

Is it a cappucino?! The Jerry Thomas coffee cocktail has no coffee, but surprisingly tastes just like it. Especially with a few sprays of our Coffee Mist on top!
