This week, Cat chats with McGraw Milhaven and KSDK anchor Kelly Jackson about pop-up dinners from Kitchen Kulture and a few picks for Valentine’s Day.
First, Kitchen Kulture is a prepared foods stand at the Tower Grove Farmers Market that started as a business making T-shirts for chefs and other people in the culinary industry. Now, they also do catering and pop-ups, including Asian-inspired dinners on Tuesdays and Wednesdays at Local Harvest Cafe.
“The food is awesome – I had every single thing on the menu last night,” Cat says during the segment. “They have this wonderful hot and sour soup that’s really rich with a lot of mushrooms, some fried MOFU tofu and coddled egg. They have a citrus salad that is wintery with lots of winter greens, grapefruit and everything in it is organic.”
The menu changes each week, but other offerings this week include bacon dumplings with shaved Brussels sprouts and a ginger beef dish on top of rice noodles. Many of the dishes include fresh, locally made MOFU tofu.
Next, Cat shares a few options for dining out in St. Louis this Valentine’s Day. First, Panorama at the Saint Louis Art Museum is hosting “aphrodisiac dinners” with dishes from chef Ivy Magruder. The restaurant also serves brunch, so you can grab a bite and then stroll around the museum with your sweetheart. Bixby’s at the Missouri History Museum is doing “sweetheart lunches,” and the restaurant offers breathtaking views of Forest Park.
