Marc Vetri and co. have been busy rounding up over four dozen high-profile chefs from around the world to convene at Philadelphia’s food(ie) event of the year. On June 14th from 6-9 p.m., chefs will be serving up small plates representing their signature styles and cuisines in the hip Urban Outfitters Headquarters location at the Navy Pier.
Chefs who will be present include David Chang of Momofuku Milkbar (and Mind of a Chef, for all you Netflix addicts), James Beard Award finalist Greg Vernick of Vernick, Michael Symon of The Food Network and The Chew, Jose Garces of Volver, Emilio Mignucci of di Bruno Bros., and Bobbie Flay (need I say more?).
As if having the opportunity to taste food from so many world renowned chefs all under one roof didn’t thrill you enough, patrons will feel even better knowing that their participation in the event contributes to the Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation (ALSF) and the Vetri Community Partnership.
This event dually helps both ALSF raise funds to find cures for all forms of pediatric cancer and the Vetri Community Partnership in providing healthy school lunch and nutrition education to Philadelphia youth.
The first year, this event raised $50,000 in a single night. Last year, over $800,000 was raised. Will you be a part of the estimated 1,200 attendees expected to participate this year?
