$50 JACCC MEMBER | $55 GENERAL
Co-founder / Chief Instigating Officer / Chef of Starry Kitchen (and also Button Mash), Nguyen Tran will tell the stories behind and teach how to make their famous signature and reservation-only dish, that only 7 places in North America make and was the centerpiece of JACCC's famed CrabFest (that got Starry Kitchen on Jonathan Gold's [RIP] LA Times 101 Best Restaurant list two years in a row)—the elusive Singaporean Chili Crab.
Participants will be carefully walked through the full process including fully breaking down and cleaning a live dungeness crab, the thought process behind every step, how to adjust spice level during mise en place, properly cooking it and karaoke break time while waiting for the crab to simmer in the uniquely unctuous sauce (that attendees will sop up with Buttermilk Beer Beignets—which will also be taught) that makes this dish an incredibly special treat and highly sought after.
