PHILADELPHIA, PA — Chef Jose Garces recently welcomed Kaitlin Wines and Ryan Elmore of Mom-Mom’s Kitchen as the next Chefs in Residency at Volvér at the Kimmel Center (300 S. Broad Street). This award-winning program supports the collective vision of the Kimmel Cultural Campus and Garces to foster an inclusive, innovative cultural future for Philadelphia by supporting emerging minority chefs.

The residency for Wines and Elmore runs through April 23, 2023, with exclusive dishes that pay homage to classic Polish food and ingredients. The duo’s menu will include Polish Easter Soup, Truffled Cheesesteak Pierogi, Mushrooms with Buckwheat Polenta, Stuffed Cabbage, “Leniwe” (Lazy) Pierogi with Lamb, and Filet Mignon with Potato Pierogi.

“Garces’ Chefs in Residency program is a fantastic initiative that speaks to our shared mission to build an inclusive, innovative cultural future for our city,” said Matías Tarnopolsky, president and CEO of The Philadelphia Orchestra and Kimmel Center, Inc. “We look forward to welcoming Kaitlin Wines and Ryan Elmore to showcase their unique culinary talents at Volvér at the Kimmel Center.”

“I am so excited to highlight Kaitlin Wines and Ryan Elmore from Mom-Mom’s Kitchen in our Chefs in Residency Program at Volvér,” said Garces. “From their 2014 beginnings as a food cart, to their previous brick and mortar Bridesburg BYOB, to their recently opened South Street location, I’ve been fortunate enough to follow their journey through the Philadelphia food scene.”

He added, “Much like I’ve enjoyed the success of bringing Spanish and Latin flavors to the public, Kaitlin and Ryan are raising the profile of traditional Polish and Eastern European Cuisine through their work. Philadelphia has a huge Polish community in the Port Richmond and lower northeast, but there aren’t a lot of restaurants serving that cuisine in Center City. I’m really excited to have an opportunity to share the kitchen with them and see what they have to offer our guests at Volvér. Please join me in welcoming Kaitlin and Ryan this spring.”
