Ferran Adria Immersion Dinner by Chef Greg Baker

This event is now sold out, thank you for the support! View the entire list of Immersion dinners here.

This series of seven unique dining experiences, in conjunction with our special exhibition Ferran Adria: The Invention of Food, serves as a one-of-a-kind homage to food innovator Adria, widely celebrated for changing the landscape of gastronomy in the same way Salvador Dalí changed art. These events feature singular, chef-inspired menus and wine pairings, designed to immerse you in the transformative nature of food. Seating is limited, reservations required.

About the Menu
Chef Baker – six time James Beard Best New Restaurant and Best Chef semifinalist – is a pioneer in the Tampa Bay dining scene. Named as the chef responsible for changing the modern culinary landscape of Tampa Bay by every major media outlet, he is also recognized nationally for his culinary creativity, his local farm support and for resurrecting nearly lost Florida heritage ingredients at his flagship The Refinery and at his newest restaurant Fodder & Shine. Inspired by Adria’s ability to blur the lines between savory and sweet in mid-meal and traditional “dessert” dish placement and the viewpoint that pastry chefs are the true creators, Chef Baker will present a provocative meal in which there will be no entree or dessert, but instead a blurring of traditional roles and placement over several courses. 

About the Beverages
Chef Baker has paired the following with the menu, compliments of Masciarelli Wine Company and Estrella Damm: Estrella Damm, Inedit, El Bulli, Costa Brava, Spain; Casale del Giglio, Bellone Bianco, Lazio, Italy; Monmousseau Chinon, Loire Valley, France; Monmousseau Pouilly-Fume, Loire Valley, France; Dante Robino Reserva Malbec, Lujan de Cuyo, Argentina.

More about Chef Greg Baker
Raised in Clearwater, FL, Baker set his sights on Western Culinary Institute in Portland, OR directly out of high school. He chose to leave the sunshine and white sandy beaches (and a fully paid college tuition) for diverse farmland, abundant adventurous eaters and an awesome punk rock scene. It would be in Portland where he would find his love and cement his respect for the elegance of Poor Man Food. Forging partnerships with local farmers for nearly a decade, Greg took these lessons back home to Tampa Bay where he would change the culinary scene by putting faces to farmers and daringly utilize all aspects of proteins. To do this successfully, he was forced to change his menu every week. In the beginning, there were only crickets; with each week passing he forged a new food climate in an area known for little culinary creativity. He now boasts thousands of food fans that travel from all over to enjoy his creations. But Baker remains very humbled by his success often being quoted “I’m just a dumb kid who cooks.”

Baker opened The Refinery with his wife Michelle in 2010 in the historic neighborhood of Seminole Heights in Tampa. His menus incorporate the flavors of the vast countrysides from across the globe, mixed with classical French technique all the while keeping in mind Florida’s rich cultural history. He is known for resurrecting nearly lost Florida ingredients and cooking techniques, for whole animal butchery, whole vegetable use, and for being an avid defender of farmer worker rights and policy reform.

Both The Tampa Tribune and The Tampa Bay Times consider The Refinery one of the most prized restaurants of Tampa Bay. Chef Greg and The Refinery have been recognized in Bon Appetit , Southern Living, Conde Nast Traveler, Forbes.com, Esquire Magazine, New York Magazine, The Local Palate, USA Today, The Washington Post, Edible Tampa Bay and Garden & Gun Magazine as well as countless other local and national publications. Southern Living Magazine named The Refinery “Best 100 Restaurants in the South” 2014. Celebrity Chef Mario Batali included Greg in his most recent cookbook “America: Farm to Table” for his work with local pig farmers. Greg currently can be followed on FoodRepublic.com. Zagat rated The Refinery “Best Restaurant” 2012 – 2015. The James Beard Foundation named The Refinery as a semi-finalist for Best New Restaurant in 2011 and named Baker a semi-finalist for Best Chef South in 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015 and 2016.
