Cart & Driver chef Kelly Whitaker has left the RiNo pizza kitchen to launch Ash mobile kitchen with Basta’s Cody Taft.
“Ash is about getting back to the fundamentals and adapting to whatever environment we find ourselves in by discovering creativity within the limitations,” Taft said in a statement.
They’ll be cooking with “elemental campfire” methods, which, as you can guess, means things cooking with charcoal and wood-burning ovens.
Ash is Boulder-based, but they’ll roll into Denver throughout August to give us a taste. Every Friday for the rest of the month, Ash will be at Infinite Monkey Theorem from 5 to 11 p.m. The menu will change each night, featuring items like flatbreads made with house-milled grains, local produce and foraged ingredients.
Generally, Ash will be available for pop-ups and to cater private events.
