This fall, Kitchen Rodeo and Tanqueray are joining forces to bring you Shake & Stir: Save Restaurants,  a cooking and cocktail series in support of the hospitality community. In this three-part series, you’ll join the country's most talented chefs and mixologists as they walk you through making and mixing some of their favorite dishes and cocktails. Each class will feature a dish paired with a delicious Tanqueray gin cocktail.

Alongside a generous $25,000 donation by Tanqueray, 100% of proceeds will support Relief Opportunities for All Restaurants (ROAR) and Independent Restaurant Coalition (IRC), both fighting to save independent restaurants.



Kia Damon is a self-taught chef and proud Floridan woman. While paving her way through kitchens, she launched The Supper Club From Nowhere as a response to the lack of visible Black women in her culinary community. She soon became known as Kia Cooks as she spent her time doing pop up dinners, private cooking and cooking demos. After moving to New York , she took over as an Executive Chef in Manhattan at 24 years old. Soon after, she became Cherry Bombe Magazine’s first Culinary Director. Her approach to food is influenced by her personal exploration into her roots and her desire to find the threads that tie cultures together. (Photo credit: Christian Rodriguez)

Lauren Davis is a veteran bartender and mixologist based in Brooklyn, NY. Lauren built her mixology chops behind the bar at the renowned Raines Law Room in Manhattan. Now, as events director at Raines Law Room and Dear Irving, she teaches and crafts spectacular mixology experiences as a master bartender. Lauren is also a proud member of LUPEC (Ladies United for the Preservation of Endangered Cocktails).


Kia takes us down South with Gumbo, a Gulf Coast staple that’s like a warm hug on a chilly day. While gumbo can take many formats, Kia will use sausage and duck confit to bring together the classic Creole flavors of aromatics and subtle spice that layer this dish. Served over rice, this is the perfect meal to feed a crowd (or to eat all yourself).

To complement Kia's gumbo, Lauren has created the Aromatic G&T. A play on the classic Gin and Tonic, Lauren's version includes aromatic bitters and is garnished with a bay leaf, a common ingredient in many Creole dishes.

Like all things Kitchen Rodeo, you'll cook, shake, and stir with Kia and Lauren in real time. You'll ask questions and get feedback on your dish (and drink)—all for a great cause!
