If you're not still stuffed from Taste of Two Fork and Chef's and Champagne, this Saturday brings yet another event for the food-loving masses: The Chef's Dinner. This event has featured a roster of notable chefs from both NYC and the local area and this year is no exception. Here's just a few that are scheduled to appear: Eric Ripert (Le Bernardin), Amanda Freitag (Food Network's Chopped), Joe Isidori (Southfork Kitchen), Claudia Fleming (North Fork Table & Inn), Joseph Realmuto and Jessica Craig (Nick and Toni's), and Kevin Penner (1770 House). And, just to make sure those salivary glands are working overtime, there will be a couple of desserts from Ina Garten's upcoming cookbook Foolproof.
The event?which the embedded video from 2011 demonstrates is a more intimate affair than ToTF or C&C?isn't just about sampling some incredibly tasty cuisine, though. It's a benefit for the Hayground School's Jeff's Kitchen and the Jeff Salaway Scholarship Fund.
Tickets for the cocktail party (between 5:30 and 7:30) are $150 per person. Those for dinner and the cocktail party are $750.
