Clandestine Cuisine

Clandestine Cuisine. Quite the curious title for Chef Matt Schellig’s Nov. 3 pop-up dinner, no? Well, Chef Schellig is cagey, if not profoundly accomplished in not only piquing a diner’s interest but in delivering a steller culinary experience as well, and he’s bringing that cuisine concept to Three Cats Cafe located inside The Show at Leon and Lulu in Clawson.

Schellig’s idea of Clandestine Cuisine is to surprise and delight a discerning diner with an experience in which the customer gets only a few delicious clues and catchy titles (Boo-Ya!, Wham! Amore!) about what is to come from the kitchen. The chef won’t tell us much about his culinary extravaganza but here’s what we know:
Taleggio, truffles, tomatoes, taters and toasted almonds will join ginger, wasabi, bone marrow, root vegetables, ravioli, white chocolate, passion fruit and a delicate white fish from Hawaii called Wahoo for this one-of-a-kind 10-course or more meal. There’s more, of course, but we’ve been sworn to secrecy.

Schellig, known for his playful nature as well as his impressive background (he’s a CIA grad, the former owner of the much-loved Aunt Olive’s Good Food 2Go, and helmed kitchens of well-known restaurants such as Shiraz, A Matter of Taste, Duet, and No.VI Chophouse, to name a few) has created this exciting menu to show off his talents and sense of humor and it promises to delight.
If we’ve aroused your curiosity and enticed your tastebuds, come join us Saturday, Nov. 3 for some fun and get a belly full of laughs and fabulous food. Besides, this is the night we set back the clocks, what better way to spend that extra hour?

Dinner is $65; cocktails and wine available for a nominal additional fee.
Cocktails at 6PM, dinner at 7PM.  Purchase tickets here: Clandestine Cuisine Tickets
