Avec’s unfortunate fire has kept Koren Grieveson from turning out her award-wining cuisine from her own kitchen for nearly two months. But that doesn’t necessarily mean that she’s keeping her pots cold. Tomorrow night she joins fellow James Beard Award-winner Jeff Michaud at Philadelphia’s Osteria for a collaborative dinner that benefits the James Beard foundation. The $175 five-course dinner begins with a reception with the chefs, passed canapés and wine. Each course will be served with select wine pairings. Menu highlights include fresh venison salame with fig chips and mostarda, rosemary brined and braised pork cheeks with garbanzo beans, fall squash and Tuscan kale and sundried tomato stew, and chestnut cannelloni with guanciale and roasted pears.
