Marilyn Johnson

After great success in 2021, the Constellation Culinary Group continues their Chef-in-Residence series at The Philadelphia Museum of Art in early 2022.

The museum is excited to provide a platform for a new lineup featuring some of the city’s most prominent and diverse culinary talent.

During the first weekend of each month, one regionally based guest chef will create a custom menu and take over the “Local & Global” station in the museum’s Café space.

The Chef-in-Residence program is aligned each month with the popular pay-what-you-wish admission offering on the first Sunday of every month and every Friday night from 5:00–8:45 pm.

The guest chef series will be returning for February, March, and April and features the following chefs:

  • February 4th, 5th, and 6th – Chef Gerald Drummond
  • March 4th, 5th, and 6th – Chef Kiki Aranita
  • April 1st, 2nd, and 3rd – Chef Judy Ni (Baology)

Chef Gerald Drummond's menu, available from 11:30 am to 2:30 pm, will feature Caribbean-style dishes such as Guyanese Beef Pepperpot (slow-roasted brisket, wiri-wiri peppers, orange, ginger, cassareep), Grilled Caribbean Jerk Chicken (slow-braised collards, rice & beans), and Caribbean Mauby Drink (mauby bark, orange, cloves, cinnamon, brown sugar, sparkling water).

Launched in 2008 and reimagined in 2018, Constellation Culinary Group is dedicated to providing best-in-class dining experiences for one-of-a-kind events, cultural centers, professional settings, restaurants, and cafes.

With over nineteen locations in eight cities, including internationally renowned cultural institutions Carnegie Hall, the Philadelphia Museum of Art, the New York Botanical Garden, Clark Art Institute, and the Pérez Art Museum Miami, Constellation brings culinary visions to life.
