She Cooks- at the Cook’s House with Chefs Jen Blakeslee and Eric Patterson

Sid Simone ventures to the Chef’s House in Traverse City to find some of the secrets of Chef Jen Blakeslee’s minimalist cuisine.

Blakeslee and Patterson realized they could provide fine-dining in Blakeslee’s hometown of Traverse City and opened a restaurant that seats only 25 people, with an intention to emphasize the importance of locally grown and foraged foods.

Reservations are often made months in advance, because her simple plates, yet delicious entrees are in high demand, and the ingredients are seasonal.

Cook’s House in Traverse City features rare, domestic and international wines in a simplistic dining room…and yes, it’s a house!

Sid Simone prepares and enjoys this #flavafulltv meal, featuring a raw wood-ear mushroom.

They Blakeslee and Patterson joins us again on this Foodie Friday to discuss more about the ideas behind the dishes they prepare.
