Ever wonder how your favorite chefs landed in the kitchen? Or who inspires them and what motivates them? Well, Beauty and Her Feast has always been intrigued by all the ingredients that go into the "making of a chef!" On Monday, November 7, I am kicking off a new live event series called Spotlight Chef. The series is a unique and interactive show that captures a live audience in an intimate atmosphere of the chefs restaurant. The personalized event series is designed to exclusively showcase a premier chef, restaurateur or tastemaker in the “spotlight” for a talk show type of setting, think…Inside the Actor's Studio but driven by the culinary world.
The focus will be on the chef outside of the kitchen and topics will range from his or her childhood, inspirations, experiences, mentors and goals. Foodies will have the rare opportunity to listen in on a candid conversation with their favorite chefs or culinary moguls from around the country. I will lead a 30 - 40 minute in-depth interview highlighting the talent and skill that brought these chefs to find and follow their culinary passion in a never-before-seen setting. Following the interview, guests will be treated to a special meal. The show is kicking off in Chicago but national plans are well under way.
A portion of the ticket sales from each Spotlight Chef will be donated to a charity chosen by the chef. First up is Chef John des Rosiers of Inovasi and Wisma in Lake Bluff, Illinois. Reservations can be made by calling the restaurant and any questions can be sent to Beauty and Her Feast by clicking here.
