Seattle chefs on fire: feel the Burning Beast

Too bad I’ve got other plans on Sunday. Otherwise, I’d reserve a ticket and attend what promises to be a carnivorous feast of dramatic proportion: Burning Beast. Brasa’s Tamara Murphy is always up to something, and this weekend she’s hosting a fire-centric festival of food and fun with help from some of her chef-buddies (Maria Hines, Matt Dillon and Gabe Claycamp among them) at the appropriately named Smoke Farm in Arlington. The event, which promise to segue into a Monday morning hangover (you’re encouraged to bring camping gear and spend the night) involves lots of great eats, including spit-roasted lamb and goat, coal-roasted seafood, plus roaming musicians, storytelling and surely, at some point, a rousing chorus of “Kumbaya.” Sounds like something you may not want to miss. Rebekah Denn dished more details on her blog earlier this week, and when I saw the Brasa newsletter in my e-mail box today, reminding me of what I’d be missing, I came thisclose to changing my Sunday plans. Hey Tamara! Do it again next year, OK?
