Celebrate The Chefs
Chef Celebration, a nonprofit organization striving to lay a foundation of excellence for San Diego’s dining community, presents its 14th annual dinner series, held at various restaurants once a week throughout the month of October. Celebrations take place every Tuesday in October and will focus on fusing each renowned chef’s unique talents into a delectable five-course dinner. Teams of chefs will join forces at Kitchen 1540, Cowboy Star, Cucina Urbana, Pamplemousse Grille, and Terra Restaurant. Each chef will contribute one of their most notable recipes and throughout the dinner make special appearances to mingle with the guests.
Chef Celebration is a collaborative effort made possible by more than 20 award-winning local chefs who donate their expertise to raise money for a culinary scholarship program. Tickets are $65 per person, with $35 going towards the nonprofit scholarship fund. To make reservations, please contact host restaurants directly. (www.chefcelebration.org)
