Los Angeles chef Nancy Silverton is hosting a wood-fire cooking series at her meat-centric Italian restaurant Chi Spacca in Hancock Park.

Silverton, who has multiple Los Angeles restaurants, including Pizzeria Mozza and Osteria Mozza, invited chefs from around the world to cook with her and chef Ryan DeNicola over Chi Spacca’s wood-fired grill for three separate dinners.

On Wednesday, Silverton will host Tomos Parry, executive chef at the Michelin-starred Brat in London. At Brat, Parry is known for a menu heavy on Cornish fish and Welsh meat, all prepared over a wood-fired grill.

“I think that Brat is currently one of the best examples of new British cooking in London,” Silverton said. “Tomos focuses on making food of the moment.”


Silverton and Parry collaborated on a menu that includes smoked cod roe with fennel toast, crab and grilled cabbage salad; Dover sole “pil pil” (a Basque Country fish dish) with smoked potatoes and hay butter; and wood-fired cheesecake.

Tickets are $250 per person and include beverages and service.

On March 11, Christopher Kostow of the Charter Oak in Napa Valley will join Silverton and DeNicola in the kitchen. And Marc-Olivier Frappier of Joe Beef in Montreal will close out the series on March 18.
