Manresa’s Jacob Pilarski popping up at PG’s Happy Girl Kitchen this weekend!

Untitled-2It’s not too late to snag tickets for Happy Girl Kitchen’s pop-up dinners this Friday and Saturday night—which will bring back none other than Manresa’s Jacob Pilarski, who kicked off Happy Girl’s pop-up series with a sublime repast in February.

This time, the Los Gatos-based chef will transform Freewheelin’ Farm’s delicious produce into a benefit for the Santa Cruz-based , FoodWhat youth empowerment and food justice program—and a great time for guests.

The BYOB (nice opportunity to share a bottle of wine with your neighbor) dinners, a steal at $55 a head (with room to donate more towards the impressive and well-deserved program), will certainly deliver more than just a delicious meal.

Untitled-3The Food, What ?! youth will be working side by side with Chef Pilarski to create both nights’ vegetarian menus, tentatively featuring dishes such as Cannelloni Beans with Almond Milk and Roasted Garlic, Torpedo Onions, Dried Strawberries and Saffron, and Shoo-fly Pie, with surely more unexpected delights once the produce boxes arrive.

Think Manresa-style purity of flavor, inspirational youth, and the conviviality of sharing food and drink with your community.

Untitled-1Get tickets here for Friday, here for Saturday. Dinner starts at 6pm both nights, at the Happy Girl Kitchen Café, 173 Central Avenue
Pacific Grove, CA 93950.
