    Maestro Welcomes Chef Stagliano


    5:00pm–9:30pm

    Maestro welcomes sous chef Christian Stagliano from Union Restaurant on Thursday July 18 as a guest chef for a prix fixe, five-course meal. Chef Stagliano will prepare a heritage pig and use each part as a main or sub ingredient for each course of this special evening dinner. Limited vegan/vegetarian options will be available. Advance reservations required - phone the restaurant to make them. 

    Raised in Pasadena, Chef Stagliano pays homage to his roots with cooking. Born to Cuban and Argentine parents, he fuses the best of both cultures in his distinctive cuisine. His Italian grandmother also instilled invaluable kitchen skills over the countless hours the duo spent cooking together at home. His multicultural background helped shape his palate and inculcated his yearning to formally learn the craft.

    Currently, Stagliano is a Sous Chef at the award-winning Union Restaurant. He is well known for his butchering skills. Through honing these skills, he has perfected sustainable cooking and prides himself in using every part of an animal, from nose to tail.  Previous to Union, Stagliano owned and operated his own successful catering company for two years. Today, Stagliano continues to spend time in his grandparents’ kitchen.

    Whimsy Pasadena hosts a free workshop led by certified meditation teacher Brad Gantt of Still Moving Meditation. Participants will learn about an effortless meditation technique that will create deep rest in your mind and body.

    The workshop will consist of a talk, followed by instruction and a group meditation. Enjoy a Q&A afterwards. Come by, meet your neighbors, let go of some stress together, and learn how easy meditation can be.

    In this workshop you will:

    • Learn about a simple, effortless meditation technique that will allow you to release a lifetime of stress, calm your mind and rejuvenate your body.
    • Learn the mechanics of stress, how to separate the good from the bad, and why reducing bad stress will improve your life in ways you'll find hard to believe.
    • Learn the difference between meditation and mindfulness, and why that matters.
    • Learn how meditation affects the body and the mind.
