|Three pastry chefs, music, and a rare beer on April 20|
If you have a sweet tooth, mark your calendars for Friday, April 20. Gastro Non Grata
, the collective "chef-driven labor of love" headed by organizers Craig Drehmel and Jeff Mitchell has announced its next event, and it features a killer lineup of pastry talent.
So who will be furnishing the sweet treats that evening?
Three dessert courses will be coming from three celebrated dessert geniuses: recent James Beard Award nominee and duchess of hand pies Michelle Gayer from The Salty Tart
, Dustan Pinlac of Cafe Levain
, and Christian Aldrich from Haute Dish
If dessert isn't enough to lure you out on a Friday night, GNG is also pairing each sweet course with a different beer from Lagunitas Brewery. Rumor has it that one of those beers will be a hard-to-find double IPA called Waldo's Ale. There's even a Dead Meat Door Prize with proteins provided by the Linden Hills-based Clancey's Meat and Fish
