What You'll Do

"Andrew Wood is a pig-whisperer," declares Philadelphia magazine, which named Wood's Russet best in the city for charcuterie in 2012. Come savor Andrew's award-winning approach to charcuterie over four courses, including three made with suckling pig, as you hear about his philosophy behind his restaurant and the “whole-animal” approach.

Andrew WoodAndrew Wood
Co-Owner and Chef, Russet

While working at acclaimed restaurants like Philly's Le Bec-Fin and Chicago's Trio, chef Andrew Wood developed a simple culinary creed. Built on the idea that menus should evolve to accommodate seasonal, locally produced ingredients, the philosophy blossomed into practice in 2012 when he and his wife, Kristin, opened Russet. Andrew and pastry chef Kristin work to create earnest but elegant dishes, focusing on sourcing high-quality ingredients and letting natural flavors sing.
