Helmed by chef Jim Benson, Eleven Courses’ top-notch chefs curate tasting menus that reinforce the flavor of bacon with beer and complement truffles with wine, each served during the course of the 90-minute session. Wine and Truffle pairing courses couple five wines with an equal number of exotically flavored chocolates, skipping the usual courtship phase of meeting while reaching for the same volume in an occult bookstore. Truffles are determined by the chef, but may include adventurous flavors such as black-sesame wasabi and sweet yellow curry. Channeling knowledge gleaned at their recent escapades at the National Harbor Bacon and Beer Fest, cooks also craft quintets of innovative bacon dishes to pair with as many frothy-topped libations.
Helmed by chef Jim Benson, Eleven Courses’ multifaceted team of chefs, artists, and organizers embraces the art of the party with elegant catering and event services ranging from in-home tastings to multicourse wedding feasts. Top-notch chefs curate nuanced tasting menus as well as wine and artisan-beer tastings that tease out the complementary tastes of bacon and beer or wine and truffles.
In addition to keeping kitchens alive and cooking, Jim’s team also handles the whys and wherefores of event planning. Resident visual artists contribute to cake and floral designs, and professional planners orchestrate happenings ranging from weddings and business meetings to black-tie fantasy-baseball drafts. Eleven Courses' staff members hone their skills at a range of regional events such as the Capital Bacon and Beer Bash, the Baltimore Bridal Show, the National Harbor Wine and Food Festival, and the 3rd Anniversary Hippodrome Foodie Experience with Andrew Zimmerman of Travel Channel fame. Eleven Courses has been featured on WTTG FOX 5 and WBAL 11.
