Animal kicks off Cooking With Friends series
Jon Shook and Vinny Dotolo, the duo behind Animal and Son of a Gun, are kicking off their series of charity dinners, Cooking With Friends, with guest chef Christopher Kostow of the Michelin three-star Restaurant at Meadowood in Napa Valley. The dinner is on Monday, Jan. 14, at Animal.
The Cooking With Friends series will take place throughout the year; for each dinner Shook and Dotolo will prepare a special menu with a chef friend for one night, with part of the profits going to the charity of the guest chef’s choice.
The debut eight-course dinner is $135 per person, and wine pairings will be offered at an additional cost. Part of the proceeds will be donated to Cancer for College, a foundation that provides financial aid to cancer survivors in the form of college scholarships.
Call for (323) 782-9225 any day after 2 p.m. for reservations.
