Chef Celebration's Final 2014 Event This Sunday at Stone Brewing Liberty Station

For years, dozens of chefs have gotten together annually at host restaurants to collaborate on unique, multi-course meals. The chef combos can be dizzying. Last week, for instance, Amanda Baumgarten of Waypoint Public hosted Chad White (ComĂșn), Joe Magnanelli (Cucina Urbana), Matt Gordon (Solace Restaurants), and her own Jenn Reinhart.
 
All this, under the auspices of Chef Celebration, to raise scholarship funds for young aspiring chefs to attend a week-long course in Napa. How important are these courses? Well, in 16 years dozens of San Diego chefs have attended and you've enjoyed their food; think Hanis Cavin of Carnitas Snack Shack, Victor Jimenez of Cowboy Star, Denise Roa of the Art Institute and El Lugar de Nos, and Llasa Landry of Lion's Share and soon Heart & Trotter Butcher.



This year's Chef Celebration culminates Sunday afternoon with the 4th Annual Chef Celebration Artisan and Craft Beer Festival at Stone Brewing World Bistro and Gardens in Liberty Station. From noon to 3 p.m., you'll enjoy 12 dishes from 12 chefs and craft beer pairings. Here's the incredible lineup:
