Private Fat Pastor Course
In 2012, Shawn Niles visited a sandwich shop in Italy where he had a porchetta that was “life-changing.” He was inspired to recreate that dish, and in doing so, landed him a spot on Season 8 of MasterChef where he was ranked one of the top 40 home chefs in America.
Trust Gordon Ramsay, who said, “Shawn, you’re a passionate man, and you were born to serve your community. But I think you were born to cook. Don’t stop.”
Tonight, one table will get to taste an exclusive additional course of Shawn Niles’ Smoked Porchetta, Hazelnut Gremolata with Lemon caper Aioli.
Thank you to: Shawn Niles and Fat Pastor Productions
