Chef of NYC’s East Village Prune Restaurant 

At the home of Amy Jedlicka 

You are invited to a private dinner with chef and owner of Prune in NYC’s East Village and Prun​e Cookbook author Gabrielle Hamilton. The dinner will be hosted by Amy Jedlicka on Tuesday February 10, 2015 at 7:30pm and all contributions will benefit PEN American Center. 

Gabrielle will talk about her Prune Cookbook. “Prune has always been an idiosyncratic restaurant, with no culinary mission — like Italian tradition with Brazilian flavor, or American comfort meets Pacific Rim — other than to serve what Ms. Hamilton likes to eat. So, in “Prune” the book, as in the dollhouse-size dining room, broiled grapefruit sit next to poached peaches with toasted almond cream, and Siberian manti share space with New York deli-style egg sandwiches… Written as if it were a manual to the sous-chefs in her kitchen, the book is fresh, fascinating and, occasionally, maddening.”
