This January kicks off our first Sunday Supper Club event!

It’s the new way to spend Sunday night– adorn yourself in your most dashing attire and indulge in a sensuous evening of food, wine, music and art at the Ger-Nis Culinary & Herb Center Sunday Night Supper Club.

“Sundays just got a whole lot sexier!”

The supper club, happening once a season is by invitation only and available to a small gathering of 35 guests, featuring:
– A local chef, who will prepare a decadent, nonpareil multi-course menu with wine pairings
– Live jazz peppering the air
– Seasonal and worldly inspired libations produced in-house and, of course, beer and wine
– Art auction raffle
– Each event will highlight products from local, organic, sustainable, and fair-trade farmers, artisans, and purveyors to show support for the community

Meet this Winter’s Chef…Jacques Gautier of Palo Santo
The inaugural and sultry Latin themed Supper Club guarantees to set aglow the thick of winter with an intimate and warm evening of fierce, dynamic foods prepared by Local Chef Jacques Gautier of Palo Santo in Park Slope, Brooklyn. Our spacious kitchen forms an idyllic aperture for viewing Chef Gautier as he creates a disdainfully delicious, Latin-inspired 4-course meal- his specialty.

Latin Inspired Jazz with Dan Aran Trio
Aran’s music has made waves that bound from one coast to another, leaving reviews in his wake with winding phrases like, “the subtle textures and tone colors,” “lonely bassoon,” and “loping, unorthodox two-chord vamp” in reference to his music. He’s from Jerusalem and has been living in New York since 2001. You can call him a lifetime musician. Eat, drink, and converse with this unique jazz style.

Latin Art Auction
Within the four walls of Ger-Nis we love supporting local artists and for this Latin themed art auction we will raffle off an exceptionally beautiful canvas (4’x4’) by Jennifer Pierson entitled “Day of the Dead.” Pierson, a noted painter for her use of organic shapes and rich, natural hues, proudly hangs on the walls of Ger-Nis Culinary & Herb Center and is our resident food artist.

We’ve Got the Goods and the Connections
Ingredients making possible tonight’s offerings are sourced from our Latin American growers and farmers including Fairtrasa; organic and fair-trade avocados from Uruapan, Mexico; organic ginger from the Peruvian Amazon rainforest in the Andes range; and organic and fair-trade mangos from Chiclayo to Piura, Peru. We will also feature local sustainable meats and seafood.

At the Bar…
We’re reinventing traditional Latin cocktails like the Puta de Mayo of Mexico using house-infused mezcals and mixing up drinks like the Pisco Sour of Peru and the Macuá of Nicaragua. We’ll also be offering biodynamic, sustainable wines and beers from the Latin American region.
