I know! Let's swap restaurants!

Sean Daly and David Cook have cooked up something fun to do--and remarkably trusting, I think. They're going to trade restaurants for a night. Sean and his kitchen staff get to walk into David's kitchen at Daveed's in Mount Adams (which is tiny--I have no idea how they make that elaborate, fine food) and David and his culinary entourage get to show up at Hugo in Oakley. They'll then have to come up with a menu based on what they find in the walk-in, figure out how to cook it in the new surroundings, and serve it. (the serving staff stays put.) They'll do it for charity--and to amuse themselves. David Cook should probably start looking up recipes for grits. And it would be only fair for him to leave some of his signature foie gras and flank steak for Sean, along with something completely bizarre, like oil made from nuts already eaten by goats (there is such a thing, and it's the kind of thing you'll find on Daveed's menu)
David Cook cooks everywhere --he'll come to your house if you pay him -- so I think he'll be fine. Sean Daly hasn't been doing this as long, but he's a very good cook, too. Ought to be fun. March 13, two seatings at 6 and 8:15 p.m. Proceeds go to SIDS and Kindervelt.
Make a reservation at the restaurant of your choice.
HUGO 321-HUGO (4648)
Daveed's 721-2665
