Cooking demos at Comcast Center

Center City District is bringing in four chefs over two weeks to the Market & Shops at the Comcast Center for a lunchtime series to plug Center City District Restaurant Week, which will run Jan. 22-27 and Jan. 29-Feb. 3. (Info is here.)

On Thursday, Jan. 12, you'll see Nick Cassidy of El Vez, who probably makes more guacamole in a shift than you make in a lifetime.  Tuesday's guest chef was Olivier Desaintmartin of Caribou Café & Zinc, who regaled lunchtimers by whipping up veal breast roast Lyonnaise. (See recap/recipe here.)

Next week's chefs will be Robert Tyndall of the Farmers' Cabinet (Jan. 17) and Erin O'Shea of Percy Street Barbecue (Jan. 19). O'Shea has home-field advantage, as she recently opened a Percy Street takeout shop about 20 feet from the demo kitchen.

All demos start at 12:30 p.m.
