We've got a couple of big events coming up this month and chefs are in the thick of it to help.
Following the reception, guests will enjoy dinner by the Sheraton’s executive chef Steve Black, dancing to the big-band tunes of Society Beat and an evening emceed by Channel 8’s Barbara-Lee Edwards.
Last year’s event raised more than $725,000 to help recruit leading physician-scientists to the Moores UCSD Cancer Center, who provide care to cancer patients throughout the greater San Diego area. For ticket information, go to celebritychefscook.org or call Jennilyn Tan at 858-822-0023.
Also on May 16 is the 5th annual ARTSea Cafe, hosted by A Reason to Survive (ARTS) in San Diego. To be held at the Hilton San Diego Bayfront from 6 to 10 p.m., the event is inspired by the power of art and music -- and so is the food.
Among the participating chefs are Culinary Chair and executive chef Andrew Spurgin of Waters Fine Catering, Christian Graves of Jsix at Hotel Solamar, Brian Malarkey of The Oceanaire, Antonio Friscia of Stingaree, Katie Grebow of Cafe Chloe, Jason Knibb of Nine-Ten and Patrick Dahms of Vela at Hilton San Diego Bayfront.
