Celebrity Chef Tour Visits Park City
The James Beard Foundation's "Celebrity Chef Tour" returns this weekend to Park City's Riverhorse on Main (540 Main, 435-649-3536, RiverhorseParkCity.com). During the evening of Saturday, Sept. 24, six award-winning chefs—including a Top Chef TV fan favorite—serve a multi-course meal priced at $225 per person, with proceeds benefiting the James Beard Foundation (JamesBeard.org). Taking over Riverhorse's kitchen is Top Chef's Tiffany Derry; La Jolla Beach and Tennis Club executive chef Bernard Guillas; Shabu co-owner and executive chef Robert Valaika; Deer Valley Resort director of food and beverage Jodie Rogers; Eva and Eva's Bakery owner Charlie Perry; and Riverhorse co-owner and executive chef Seth Adams. Just like dining at the historic James Beard House in New York City, guests have the opportunity to mix, mingle and interact with the chefs. "This is going to be a night you and your taste buds won't want to miss," Adams says in a press release. "Each of these chefs is a rock star, and it's going to be a blast having them in the kitchen—and for a good cause, too." To purchase tickets, call Riverhorse on Main or visit JamesBeard.org/Events.
