Welcome to Home Skillet, the Delaware food and wine version of Jayson Stark. Here's the latest:

Chef shakeup: Big shakeup on the Wilmington dining front this week, as longtime Domaine Hudson chef Jason Barrowcliff announced he will leave the venerable restaurant and wine bar at the end of the year.

Taking his place at DH will be chef Abdelatif (Abde) Dahrouch, formerly of the excellent Pond Restaurant/Bistro Cassis in Radnor, Pa. A statement from Domaine Hudson characterizes Dahrouch’s cooking style as a melding of French, Mediterranean and Moroccan flavors. He also seeks out vigorously “the finest ingredients that he can find from local sources and farmers, favoring seasonal ingredients at their peak for flavor.”

            Wow. Is this the local restaurant scene’s answer to Cliff Lee for Roy Halladay? We’ll find out in 2010.

 

Thursday, December 17: Sweet Basil, a lovely little orchid-decorated Thai BYOB (and innovators of truly awesome Asian tapas) just over the state line in Chadds Ford, is teaming up with Veritas Wine and Spirits for a special wine dinner Thursday.

A menu is still in the developmental stage, but wine will be complimentary. Call Sweet Basil at 610-358-4015 for more.

 

Thursday, December 17: Look for a big ol’ review of the BBC Tavern and Grill in our March Savor section (here’s an abridged version: “Try the pretzels.”). But in the meantime, head over to the BBC for the Mistletoe Martinis for MS event from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m. Thursday.

The guest bartending event—tips go to the Multiple Sclerosis Society—will include drink specials and raffle prizes. Those eating dinner will have a portion of their bill donated upon request. Call BBC at 655-3785 for more.

 

Friday, December 18: A favorite local Irish watering hole, Mulrooney’s Tavern (201 New Road, Wilmington, 654-9661), will hold a benefit for Christiana Hospital’s Helen H. Graham Cancer Center on Friday, featuring live music and more.

A $5 cover nets you one drink ticket, and keep stuffing the tip Jar to benefit cancer patients without health insurance coverage.
