Join Up in the Air Life for this weekend's signature event, the Chef's Tasting Dinner at The Munch Factory. The Munch Factory is exactly as the name sounds…a place (factory) where things (food) are being created and built for you to use (munch). And the master creators in this factory are Chef Jordan Ruiz and his wife, Alexis Pearson Ruiz. From the signature Shrimp and Grits (sautéed shrimp in a Worcestershire sauce served on top of stone ground grits) and the Fine’s Herb Chicken (half of a deboned chicken, first sautéed, then slow cooked in the oven and topped with a creamy herb sauce served with potato croquettes), the love and passion that Jordan has for cooking is apparent in every bite. And Jordan is no stranger to the cooking world. First of all, he’s a child of New Orleans, so you know he knows what good food is. Aside from that ingrained, natural talent, Jordan is a graduate of the Culinary Institute of America (CIA), as well as having cooked for Emeril’s, Commander’s Palace, and Loews Hotel.
The Up in the Air Life Chef's Tasting Dinner will exhibit an extensive array of some of the most exquisite examples of New Orleans cuisine you will find in the city. Tonight's menu will feature tasting portions of multiple appetizers, several entrees, desserts, and a wine pairing with each course. The cost of this event is inclusive of your multi-course meal, wine pairings, taxes, and gratuity.
