Chicken Peperonata

Guests stopped debating whether orange or apricot bitters go better with dark rum when chef Jason Travi brought out the food: roasted chicken cooked with a satisfyingly stewy mix of bell peppers, tangy Peppadew peppers and tomatoes (left); creamy semolina with roasted mushrooms; and Travi's tribute to his mother's baklava, a pear tartlet made with phyllo dough.
