EATcetera Executive Chef Alena Pyles and business partner Victoria Newsome launched their Fancy Jackson Supper Club series with their first-ever vegan dinner with guest Chef Blaine Lunz on March 1.

Guests enjoyed a six-course dinner prepared by Pyles and Lunz. The first course featured vegan charcuterie with crostinis, pickled Asian pear and sake mustard. The last course — dessert — was a spring fruit crisp with blackberry-ginger compote and basil-lime granita.
