Ten22 is turning 4 next week and would like to gift you some culinary karma. California Food Literacy Center is closing down Ten22 for their own birthday party. The bash will take place on you guessed it, Tuesday, October 22nd! From 5:30 p.m. – 8:30 p.m. the award-winning restaurant, located at 1022 2nd St. will be serving libations and seasonally inspired dishes to birthday guests. Tickets are just $40, and all the proceeds go towards California Food Literacy Center’s programs like edible nutrition classes and interactive cooking lessons.
Some of the winning recipes from the Kid’s Recipe Contest will be served during the birthday bash, including Roasted Fall Squash Bruschetta, Cured Salmon Lox with Crème Fraiche and Wild Mushroom Pot Pies. Speaking of mushrooms, I just cooked mushrooms for the first time. I think they turned out well. The green bean, feta, mushroom, salmon quiche I made is one of my favorite quiche combinations so far.
Ten22 participated in California Food Literacy Center’s Eat SMART restaurant campaign during California’s Food Literacy Month. Ten22′s foundation donated $1 for every table served in September. The winner of California Food Literacy Center’s Kid Recipe Contest will be announced at the party and Chef Jay Veregge will cook the winning dish alongside the winner. The restaurant’s kids menu will even feature the winning recipe!
The last time I ate at Ten22 was before a wine tasting class on the Delta King. The salmon with seasonal veggies was delicious, plus the server sat my grandmother and I in a quiet booth. I didn’t even have to ask!
I hope to see you at this celebration of creative cuisine in Old Sacramento. Valet and validated parking will be available.
