Cool down on Monday at the Beer Kitchen
- It’s all about cold brews and heirloom tomatoes at chef Michael Peterson’s Monday-night beer dinner.
Don’t complain about the dry, miserable July heat to chef Michael Peterson. His two young sons are both playing Little League baseball this summer in temperatures far more intense than any hot kitchen where the veteran chef has been employed. But the unrelenting heat wave inspired Peterson, the executive chef for McCoy’s Public House and the Beer Kitchen, to create a particularly refreshing menu — featuring Kurlbaum heirloom tomatoes in the dishes — for this month’s installment of the monthly beer dinners presented at the Beer Kitchen (435 Westport Road, 816-389-4180). The upcoming dinner will be held this Monday, July 23, at 7:30 p.m.
“We have about a dozen reservations still open,” Peterson says, “and I want to fill up the dining room. It’s a great dinner with excellent beer pairings.”
