Dine Around Downtown: Cooking At Home Holiday Special Features Seamore’s On December 17
Dine Around Downtown: Cooking at Home returns for a holiday special on Thursday, December 17 at 4p, featuring James Beard Award-winning chef and New York Times-bestselling author Rocco DiSpirito and Seamore’s executive chef Rob Eggleston making their signature holiday salmon roast. Created by the Alliance for Downtown New York, the nonprofit business improvement district for Lower Manhattan, the limited series has also confirmed a new season starting in late January.
Registration is open at: downtownny.com/dinearound-at-home
Dine Around Downtown: Cooking at Home has transformed its longstanding annual lunchtime festival into a free virtual cook-along: DiSpirito hosts chefs from Lower Manhattan restaurants as they cook up signature recipes and share tips for crafting everything from complex gastronomic delights to staple comfort foods. The episodes, broadcast via Zoom, provide exposure for the participating restaurants, raise money for the local restaurant community and provide viewers at home with exciting recipes. While free to participate, the series accepts donations for food security charities and restaurant employee relief funds as chosen by each guest.
The series launched over the summer with America’s first restaurant Delmonico’s, and has since been followed with episodes featuring Gnoccheria, Taïm, Temple Court, Benares and Casa Taqueria. All previous episodes are available on YouTube.
Additionally, participants are encouraged to make the dishes themselves and post photos of their plates on Instagram, tagging #DineAroundAtHome and @downtownnyc for a chance to win a personal 30-minute cooking class with the featured chef.
