Interwoven, presented by Lexus, is a series of four dinners that will be truly collaborative: Morales will cook dishes inspired by her guest chefs, and they’ll in turn incorporate Eastern European flavors and ingredients from Kachka to create new dishes inspired by her cooking. The chefs will riff off of each other and the dishes will be presented in tandem with the aim of creating a seamless, one-of-a-kind meal that blends the two styles together.

Morales hand-picked the chefs who inspire her, but also whose food is a clear departure from Kachka, so that the dinners are a true exercise in culinary collaboration. Mason Hereford’s Turkey and the Wolf is a New Orleans sandwich shop (that Bon Appétit named “America’s best new restaurant”); James Beard Award winning chef Abe Conlon and Adrienne Lo from Fat Rice in Chicago cook food in celebration of the culinary history of Macao; Sara Kramer and Sarah Hymanson’s nationally acclaimed Los Angeles restaurant Kismet combines Middle Eastern flavors with a modern California aesthetic; at Oxomoco in New York, Justin Bazdarich is making waves (and earned a Michelin star) with his boundary-pushing Mexican cooking.
