Here’s a unique event you won’t get another chance to experience: on Thursday November 3rd, Traci Des Jardins will host four of her fellow Top Chef alumni in the Jardinière kitchen for a special ~TOP CHEF MASTERS REUNION DINNER~ and fundraiser for Share Our Strength’s No Kid Hungry Campaign. The evening starts with an intimate cocktail reception at 6pm, followed by a seated four-course dinner at 7pm.
The Top Chef Masters finalists joining Traci Des Jardins are Mary Sue Milliken (Border Grill, Los Angeles), Naomi Pomeroy (Beast, Portland), Floyd Cardoz (North End Grill, Battery Park City), and Suvir Saran (Devi, New York). Unlike on TV where they were competing against one another, now they’re all working together in the kitchen for a common cause. How lovely.
You don’t get a lot of chances to be up close and personal with all these culinary talents in one place, so if you’ve got the bucks, purchase tickets online, starting at $150 for the cocktail reception only, and $1,000 and up for the reception and seated dinner (no, not cheap—but some of you out there can afford this, right?). Share Our Strength’s No Kid Hungry Campaign aims to end childhood hunger in San Francisco and across the United States.
