One year ago, the beginning of a lifelong dream started. I knew for years that I wanted to own my own business. After months of research, I decided to host my first Pop Up Restaurant. A Pop Up Restaurant, for those of you who are not aware, is a temporary restaurant that opens for one night only and may open again in another location at a later date.

Our first event was in August 2012 at Jefferson Park in Pittston. We took a slightly run-down building, and with the help of some candles, great food and a lot of heart, we made the very first Pop Up Restaurant in NEPA.

One year later, the Peculiar Culinary Co. has 15 pop-up events as well as catering events under our belt. We’re grateful to our customers and friends and will continue to strive to make the most peculiar food possible.

Here is a little taste of something to expect at the Pop Up on the Anniversary Tasting Dinner at Arturo’s in Dupont on Aug. 12.



8 ounces fresh wild-caught salmon

2 tablespoons high-quality mayo

1 tablespoon Rooster Sriracha Sauce

1 teaspoon fresh cilantro

1 teaspoon fresh ginger

2 teaspoons toasted sesame seeds

Salt and pepper


Dice the fresh salmon as small as you can. In a separate bowl, mix together all the other ingredients. Mix salmon and mayo mixture and serve immediately.

Server over some sliced cucumbers or put over a salad.
