DURHAM, N.H. -- Boston chef Stan Frankenthaler will bring his creative
style of cooking that melds traditional Asian flavors and cooking techniques
with New England heartiness and local ingredients to the University of
New Hampshire Monday, Feb. 18.
Frankenthaler is owner of the Salamander Restaurant and Satay Bar in Copley Square.
"I hope to delight the students at UNH and all the larger community members with menus filled with aromatic foods inspired by the Asian palette of ingredients. I enjoy Asian foods for many reasons -- the relationship of cuisine and culture and the way cuisine reflects heritage and regionality, for its architecture and dynamic flavors, for its harmony and balance," he says.
"He is really well versed on fusion cuisine," Coughenour says. "He is very focused on using only the best seafood along with as many other local ingredients that he can work into his menus."
Frankenthaler has been recognized by Boston area and national press, including The New York Times, Washington Post, Esquire, Bon Appetit and Gourmet. He is a frequent television guest and has appeared on Ready, Set, Cook and Chef du Jour on the Food Network, and Food New England and Chronicle on WCBV-TV Boston. In addition, he has taught culinary students at several institutions, including Boston University, the Culinary Institute of America and the New England Culinary Institute.
UNH and Frankenthaler have planned a full day of culinary events on Feb. 18.
