About Cooks’ Canvas/Food Underground:
”Restaurant work is hard work. Just ask any cook about their long, demanding hours and grueling work week. But it’s during that time when a cook is exposed to myriad ingredients , techniques, and style - stimulating their creative minds. Though, most never get the chance to implement all those idea or to execute their culinary visions. Cooks’ Canvas showcases such line cooks of great promise, affording them the opportunity to realize their imaginations by providing an audience to feed. In turn, the guests then feed these young cooks’ futures. This all happens in tandem with the Food Underground staff. We facilitate the framework in which dream becomes reality, connecting these aspiring artists, and their patrons.”

As part of the kick off to Philly Cider Week, the Museum of the American Revolution is partnering with the Pennsylvania Cider Guild as part of their existing History After Hours program.

Pennsylvania cider producers will be on hand showcasing their use of the apple and why it is re-emerging as one of the United States premier beverages, just like it was in colonial times. Come and learn about spy tactics, trickery and deception during the revolutionary war and see why PA Cider was the "Fuel of the Revolution”!

Cave à Manger: Cidre & Seafood from Normandy, Brittany, & Loire

Join the Good King’s Chloe Grigri and Chef Aaron Bennawit as they prepare a Cave à Manger style evening of al a carte seafood and cider paired with the traditional cidre of Normandy and Brittany and the resurrected cidre of the Loire Valley.

"Cave à Manger" at The Good King Tavern typically translates to live cheese counter + lots of hard-to-come-by wines by-the-glass. For Philly Cider Week, The Good King Tavern is tweaking the program. The live cheese counter will double as a raw bar with cheeses hailing from Normandy (think gooey Camembert) and oysters shucked before your eyes. Instead of wines by-the-glass, ciders will be pouring from the coastal towns spattering Normandy and the Loire Valley. The chalkboard will be chock-full of French North Atlantic classics like Marmite Dieppoise and Lobster à la Normande.

Cider & Pie w/Jaanihanso @ Fishtown Social

Those of you interested in learning more about the compelling ciders from the Jaanihanso estate from Kaelase Village in Estonia, please join Fishtown Social for a night of Cider & Pie!

Lili Shariati from Vine Street Imports will be pouring samples and talking about ciders, which will be available both by the glass and available for sale in their awesome retail section.

Guests will have the option to order a flight of all three Jaanihanso ciders paired with their choice of house-made pie (apple, pecan, or pumpkin) for $20

Fishtown Social will also be offering by-the-glass pours all week long from selections from their bottle shop.

“Apple wine, as it is called here, has been a natural part of Estonian culture for as long as anybody remembers. Every garden in Estonia has an apple tree, granny’s and grandpa’s garden has tens. Every second year there’s a natural disaster with gardens drowning in apples. Regardless of the regime in power, home engineered mills and presses have always been at work, shared with neighbors and passed on to the next generation." -Alvar Roosima (owner/cidergrower of Jaanihanso).

Night of the Living Cider II: Bone Dry

The second annual edition of the event that first inspired Philly Cider Week! On Halloween night, Kensington Quarters closes down their normal dinner service to host a wicked-fun cider event featuring two cider bars and guest chefs selling $5 small plates in individual concessions. As the term “dry” gets thrown around a lot and, at this time, there is no mandated distinction or scale to labeling ones cider as dry, this year Night of the Living Cider dives into the world of truly dry ciders, offering a full menu featuring the driest of the dry.

Come dressed to impress in your best (or worst!) Halloween attire!

This year’s guest chef line-up:

Nathan Winkler-Rhoades of Pitruco Pizza - http://www.pitrucopizza.com
