May flowers are here and with that a delicious way to enjoy the visual and flavorful bounty of Kentucky’s local farms. On Thursday, May 24 at 7PM, RYE on Market will host a paired four-course flower dinner. Tickets are $75 per person.
RYE’s executive Chef Zach Chancey designed the dinner menu that is paired with Beverage Director Kelsey Hofmann’s cocktails. Guests can expect an incredible line up of fruits and florals that complement various proteins. Black Rooster Farm located in Mt. Eden, Kentucky will provide all of the florals for the special event.
The experience begins with an amuse cocktail, a honeysuckle and basil martinez and a first course of west coast oyster with orange granita, fennel, and espelette pepper paired with an orange flower and coconut absinthe frappe. A delightful second course offers a violet, apricot, and meyer lemon gimlet paired with a beet tartar with seed cracker, blue cheese mousse, horse radish and smoked black pepper. The entree follows a roasted pork belly with strawberry vera cruz salsa paired with a strawberry & rosewater jam bramble with rye(whiskey). The experience is capped off with a dessert featuring an olive oil cake with lemon and lavender sorbet coupled with a lavender and honey Ramos gin fizz.
