Chef Marc Forgione, who recently took over the iconic wood-fired kitchen at Peasant in NoLiTa, is announcing a new collaboration series with well-known chefs. Beginning March 8th, Forgione will host a guest chef each month to cook with him in the open kitchen at Peasant, creating exclusive new dishes using the restaurant’s expansive wood-fired hearth. Each guest chef will collaborate with Marc to put together a prix fixe menu for the evening available in the dining room. Additionally, the recently opened Peasant Wine Bar will be available for a la carte specials featuring items from the guest chefs with no reservations needed.

Guest chefs confirmed to ‘play with fire’ include: Wylie Dufresne (wd~50, Du’s Donuts) kicking off the series on March 8th and Bryan Ford (Award-winning baker, author) on April 5th. Other confirmed guest chefs include Anita Lo, Marc Vetri, Michael Symon, James Kent and Dave Pasternack.

Tickets are on Resy for $99/person with a portion of proceeds going to Cookies for Kids’ Cancer, the national non-profit committed to raising funds for research to develop new, improved and less toxic treatments for pediatric cancer — the number one disease killer of children in the US.
