Basque Pop Up Dinner in Truckee
The Stella Restaurant at the Cedar House Sport Hotel in Truckee, California invites everyone to enjoy this Friday's Pop Up Dinner that will feature Basque cuisine. Their philosophy is that some of the best dining experiences don't always take place in traditional restaurants, and as such the goal of their Pop Up Dinner Series, formatted like a dinner party, is to provide an opportunity to explore creative cooking. At a Pop Up Dinner, guests are encouraged to visit the kitchen, and join in conversations that are often educational. Seating is family-style and each course is served at the same time, accompanied by commentary from the kitchen team. This Friday's dinner, a nod to Basque Sheepherders who contributed to the history of the Sierra Nevada Mountains, will begin at 6pm and cost of the meal is $97. The menu will include flavors from Northern Spain, as well as Truckee's very own Basque historic past. Tickets are available for purchase, along with complete information on the menu here.
