Pigalle Crepes at St. Matthews Farmers Market to host Chef Anthony Lamas of Seviche
Chef Anthony Lamas of Seviche is scheduled to bring his award-winning Nuevo Latino cuisine to the St. Matthews Farmers Market on July 30.
Lamas will be guest chef at Pigalle Crepes, the market creperie owned by Brian McMahan and Dana McMahan.
Lamas will be creating a signature crepe based on what is fresh and at the market that day, according to a news release.
Lamas is part of an all-star guest chef lineup this summer that includes Kathy Cary of Lilly’s and Bobby Benjamin of The Oakroom, according to the release.
Dallas McGarity of Theater Square Marketplace launched the guest chef series on June 25 with a Garey Farms raspberry and Sapori d’Italia goat cheese crepe.
“Chefs can bring a ‘secret’ ingredient’ that reflects their style of cuisine, or use any of our staples, including Fiedler Farm ham and bacon, Kenny’s Farmhouse cheese, or Duncan Farm eggs,” stated Brian McMahan in the release. “But the idea is that they create something that features the best of the market and demonstrates their own personal style.”
Pigalle Crepes, open Saturdays from 8 a.m. to noon at the St Matthews Farmers Market, features freshly-made traditional French crepes as well as a rotating menu based on what’s in season at the market. For more information, visit the Pigalle Crepes Facebook page here.
