If you are looking for something fun to do over the next few weeks, Kelli Potts of Cleveland Field Kitchen is reaching out to their subscribers with a new series called Dinner & a Movie. In this series, the Cleveland Field Kitchen will share some of their favorite movies and cook a dinner with you that is inspired by their movie choice.
They will send their subscribers an email with the movie and a grocery list in advance. All you need to do is get your groceries and have the movie they picked ready to go. You can follow along with their live cooking class on Instagram Live @clefieldkitchen. Um…. I’d say this is genius considering the times we are in currently. What a great way to learn how to make a fabulous meal! I think the whole family could get involved with this don’t you?
This week’s cooking class starts tonight (Friday) at 5:30pm. The chef will also talk about their favorite movie and field questions. What a pretty frickin’ good idea! The first movie is a River Runs Through It paired with Steelhead Trout over an open fire. In case you missed their email, here is the grocery list:
- 2-3lbs Trout or other Fish, Salmon would work well
- Beluga Lentils (black lentils)
- Golden Raisins
- 1-2 Red Onions
- Grain Mustard
- Olive Oil
- Sherry Vinegar (or Balsamic, about any vinegar, would work)
- Salt + Pepper
- Pine Branches
And make sure you don’t miss another email by subscribing to their newsletter on their website .
Not familiar with Cleveland Field Kitchen?
We were first introduced to their amazing grilled cheese sandwiches and unforgettable trout dip at a local brewery a couple weeks back. And I do mean unforgettable Kelli – Brad still asks for the recipe! Kelli Potts, started Cleveland Field Kitchen in the hopes of bringing the Slow Food Movement to Cleveland.
Cleveland Field Kitchen is a boutique catering and event company that focuses on celebrating the every day, and appreciating each season with menus that highlight local ingredients. One of their signature events is called the NOMAD series. Each event gathers a group of 50 people to a long table at a beautiful venue to celebrate food cooked from local farms.
“Our NOMAD gatherings are about building longer tables, celebrating the every day, and appreciating the art of slow living. Each event pairs a locally-sourced menu with a unique local venue to tell a story, bring your senses alive, and create an unforgettable, one-of-a-kind experience.” – Kelli Potts
The series has helped create a great following for Cleveland Field Kitchen, where most people who go to a NOMAD dinner, later become catering clients.
With Kelli’s approach to gathering people to the table to celebrate locally-sourced food in beautiful settings, she has succeeded in her goal of bringing the Slow Food Movement to Cleveland.
Cleveland Field Kitchen Food Truck
So, just another piece of this cool company. They will be firing up their food truck soon. What will they be bringing you? Some awesome seasonal salads, what they like to call “Grazing Boxes”, and killer grilled cheese sandwiches. The salads will be interesting and unique for sure. The Grazing Box is something to grab if you are just in the mood for snacking and don’t want an entire meal – just fun stuff to graze on! The grilled cheese sandwiches will be something to die for. For example: Stone Oven sourdough bread, sharp cheddar cheese, shredded brussels sprouts, homemade apple bacon jam (WHAT the WHAT?) and toasted to perfection. I for one will be tracking down that food truck!
