Last night, Jamie Wolf of Alma de Cuba and Carmen Cappello from the Moshulu faced off in our own tiny little Kitchen Stadium (otherwise known as the kitchen at COOK). They brought their sous chefs. They brought their knives and their ingredients. They thought they knew what was going to happen when we started the clock.
They had no idea.

If you’re in the hospitality industry, get excited. If you’re not, get jealous. The first ever Industry Night at Moshulu will occur tonight from 8 pm., to 1 a.m.. While it was originally scheduled for Monday, October 29th, Hurricane Sandy, who wasn’t invited, came to town and decided to shut it down out of rage. Chef Tony Clark, who is now heading up the restaurants at the Valley Forge Casino, will team up with Moshulu’s Anthony Bonnett and Carmen Cappello to create a meal that is sure to wow.
The Moshulu team will be creating dishes like house-smoked Lambdouille Dogs and Diablo Dogs with pickled onion and purple mustard, fried bologna sandwiches with smoky blue cheese and watercress, and octopus with roasted squash, chorizo and sage. Chef Clark will be whipping up a number of small plates as well.

Philadelphia Phillies outfielder Hunter Pence will be hosting the “Let’s Go Eat: Food & Fun Fest” on the Moshulu ship and restaurant on Thursday May 31st from 5:30 to 10 p.m. The event will benefit Make-A-Wish Philadelphia & Susquehanna Valley, Philabundance, and Phillies Charities, Inc.
Pence and some of his fellow Phillies, as well as other local celebrities, will enjoy food, drink, and live entertainment with guests aboard the ship. Both a live and a silent auction will take place during the event, as well as a raffle to win a luxury vehicle with a two-year lease. A few lucky guests will even have the chance to play in a Ping Pong tournament with a chance to play against Hunter Pence! Let’s hope his table tennis game is as good as his fielding.
General admission tickets are still available for $150 at http://hunterpence.ticketleap.com/letsgoeat so if you’d like to possibly win a car for two years and meet some Phillies while supporting three area charities, buy a ticket fast.

The other night Philly Cooks featured chefs from 40+ restaurants cooking up their best at the Philadelphia Magazine sponsored benefit for Ronald McDonald House. Yours truly was a judge and was indeed most impressed by Moshulu’s diver scallops.
The Insider has the full list of winners and PhillyChitChat has the photos.
