Smith & Wollensky Chef Matt King Shares Favorite Surf & Turf Menu with Plugrá Gourmet Club

September 23, 2013

Experience the culinary culture of Boston with the latest Plugrá® Gourmet Club menu featuring Surf & Turf inspiration from Chef Matt King, national director of culinary development for Smith & Wollensky Restaurant Group.

In partnership with SAVEUR Magazine, Plugrá European-Style Butter has enlisted Plugrá-loving chefs from around the country to bring their signature styles and recipes to culinary enthusiasts. Plugrá Gourmet Club members can access recipes and full menus from world-renowned chefs and learn their inside secrets to creating the best foods. Additionally, each Plugrá Gourmet Club feature includes specific dinner party planning tools and tips.

Chef King creates an exquisite and diverse Surf & Turf menu to please dinner party guests—a meal that brings the award-winning and refined Smith & Wollensky dining experience to the table. “Smith & Wollensky is an iconic steakhouse with a classic menu,” said Chef King. “One of the great things about Smith & Wollensky is we add a current twist to the menu by incorporating on-trend and seasonal ingredients into the traditional dishes you’d expect to see in a classic steakhouse.”

One of the featured dishes on the Gourmet Club menu is the Long Bone Rib Eye made with Plugrá bone marrow butter. “The butter is made by roasting marrow bones then removing the bone marrow to mix with Plugrá Butter seasoned with harissa and spices for an additional burst of flavorful richness,” said Chef King.

By providing the menu, demonstration videos, and ambiance and décor tips, Plugrá Gourmet Club makes it easy for food enthusiasts to join together, gain knowledge and celebrate their passion for food. Home chefs can learn from professionals how Plugrá Butter’s higher butterfat and a creamier texture lead to flakier pastries, creamy sauces, rich risottos, and extraordinary flavored butters and sautés.

With each menu feature, a new Club of the Month is recognized based on entries submitted. The winning group is selected by SAVEUR editors and awarded $500 toward its next dinner party. To assist in dinner party planning, the Plugrá Gourmet Club is available through a new Facebook app on the Plugrá Facebook page, as well as SAVEUR.com/plugra. The app offers additional tools to help plan your next Gourmet Club dinner party, from invitation design to dish assignments.
