Lee & Erin Chizmar

Bolete Restaurant


Chef Demonstration

Monday, November 18
6:00 PM - 8:30 PM

$100.00

Lee Chizmar, who’s worked with chefs Bradley Ogden and Michael Schlow, runs three eateries with wife Erin, one of which (Bolete) was a James Beard Award semifinalist nominee for Outstanding Restaurant in 2019. And he himself was a semifinalist for a James Beard Award in 2015. This class will focus on his passion: farm-to-table food. His commitment to freshness, evident in his menus, is driven by the farmer partnerships that he developed in PA’s Lehigh Valley.
