bluestem Celebrates Charlie Trotter Day!




Charlie TrotterOn Saturday, August 16, bluestem will salute chef Charlie Trotter with a five-course tasting menu inspired by recipes from all of his cookbooks that chefs Megan and Colby have collected. A portion of the proceeds from this tasting menu that evening will benefit The Trotter Project. Megan and Colby have a personal tie to Charlie Trotter and his namesake restaurant. At the beginning of his career, Colby went to Chicago to stage for the world famous chef in hopes of acquiring a more permanent position. Instead, he met his future wife and they began their lives - and success - together. After getting married, Colby and Megan wanted their first dinner as a married couple to be at Charlie Trotter's restaurant. Chef Trotter was gracious enough to come meet them and gave them a tour of the space and kitchen. Since all those years ago, he's been a drive and influence on Colby and Megan's culinary endeavors.
