Celebrity Chef Tour Benefiting the James Beard Foundation to Host a Delectable Evening at the Renaissance Mayflower Hotel
If anyone is interested in some great food for a great cause and are in the Washington, D.C area this Saturday, March 1st, you may want to check out this press release for The Celebrity Chef Tour.
Two celebrity chefs will be cooking. Chef Bertrand Chemel from Cafe Boulund fame and now the Executive Chef at 2941 Restaurant (just outside of DC in Falls Church) and Chef Norman Wade from the historic Renaissance Mayflower Hotel.
I’m hoping to interview both these chefs in the very near future on my Novice2Pro chef interview page. I’ll post a little blog note when they happen.
Here are some excerpts from the release:
(Washington, D.C.) The Celebrity Chef Tour is thrilled to return to Washington, D.C. and bring the famed dinners of the James Beard House in New York City to the tables of the Renaissance Mayflower Hotel on Saturday, March 1st at 7pm.
The Tour, while harnessing the excitement and huge popular culture interest in all things food, benefits the James Beard Foundation, whose mission is to celebrate, preserve and nurture America’s culinary heritage and diversity in order to elevate the appreciation of our culinary excellence.
Mirroring the coveted Beard House dinners, for which the nation’s top chefs come to prepare menus at the Foundation’s invitation, The Celebrity Chef Tour features the greatest culinary artists, creating an elevated dining experience like no other.
As such, the Celebrity Chef Tour dinner at the Renaissance Mayflower Hotel on March 1st promises to delight the palates of the most discriminating epicureans. Showcasing the talents of Celebrity Chef Bertrand Chemel and hosting Executive Chef Norman Wade, the evening will begin with a reception, featuring unique hors d’oeuvres creations prepared by the chefs and complemented with carefully selected wines. An innovative, one-of-a-kind multi-course dinner will follow, accentuated by wine pairings presented by a guest Sommelier, exclusive interactions with and access to the award-winning chefs and the ability to see behind the scenes and experience the preparation of the courses.
