Looking for a fabulous night out for a good cause? Look no further than the 26th Annual ~STAR CHEFS & VINTNERS GALA~ on Sunday April 21st at Fort Mason. The event is a benefit for Meals on Wheels of San Francisco, which provides meals to homebound seniors. Nancy Oakes of Boulevard and Prospect will lead a crew of more than 100 chefs from the Bay Area to create appetizers for the opening reception (it’s incredible), as well as a three-course dinner, and a dessert reception. It’s one of our best food events of the year, truly.
Participating chefs include Stuart Brioza and Nicole Krasinski (State Bird Provisions), Mark Dommen (One Market), Tanya Holland (Brown Sugar Kitchen), Mourad Lahlou (Aziza), and Christopher Thompson (A16). There will also be wines from more than 60 California wineries, and cocktails from local cocktail slingers Daniel Bishop (Prospect), Jon Gasparini (Rye and 15 Romolo), and Scott Beattie (Scott Beattie Cocktails). Of course, this all has a sweet ending too. The dessert reception that caps the whole night off will include goodies from the likes of William Werner (Craftsman and Wolves) and Yigit Pura (Tout Sweet).
There will also be a silent auction and raffle with some pretty spectacular prizes, including a 2013 Mini Cooper and dinners with local chefs. Beep beep. Tickets begin at $495 per person, with additional VIP and sponsorship levels available. It’s a full-tilt food extravaganza, and it all goes to an amazing cause, so give until it hurts! Marina Blvd. at Laguna, 415-920-1111.
