Studio Gourmet

A few weeks ago, I had the opportunity to check out a relatively new culinary event: Studio Gourmet. Held at Circolo Restaurant and Lounge, the show features a different local chef each month. First, there’s a cooking demonstration, then an interview with host Brad Lev, and it all wraps up with cocktails and small bites.

Take a look at the short video showing highlights from the event I attended, with Chef David Lawrence of 1300 on Fillmore, to get an idea of what it’s like. After the show was over, I was ready to go straight to 1300 on Fillmore to get more great food.

This month’s Studio Gourmet features Chef Matthew Accarrino of SPQR. The show is Tuesday, Sept. 27 at 5:30 p.m. Tickets are available for $25 (plus a $2.37 processing fee) at

There’s a chance to win four free tickets and a $50 gift certificate to SPQR by joining the email list before Sept. 20. On that day, a question about the chef will be sent to the list. Answer that question correctly, and you have an opportunity to win the tickets. Make sure you read the rules, so you have the best chance with the drawing.

See you there!
