Chef’s Best is returning to the Charlotte Convention Center Crown Ballroom on Friday, July 31, 2015, and will once again feature Charlotte’s best chefs, helping to raise funds for hunger relief. The theme this year is Organic which places focus on organically-grown and manufactured products and those relationships which began organically such as Harris Teeter and Second Harvest.
Participating chefs include: Rocco Whalen of Fahrenheit at the Skye Condos; Gene Briggs of Blue Restaurant & Bar, Eight Sushi Asian Kitchen, and Osso Restaurant & Lounge; Tom Condron of The Liberty and Lumiere French Kitchen; and Chef Philip Lloyd and Jeremy Bevins of The International Culinary School of The Art Institute of Charlotte.
In addition to a chef-prepared meal, guests will enjoy a private reception hosted by the International Culinary School at the Art Institute of Charlotte, a live auction and celebrity host Maureen O’Boyle.
