September 2012 – September 2013
Chef Tables in the Vineyard introduces a one-of-a-kind charity dinner to benefit the Cooking With Kids Foundation. This foodie-fantasy dining event is hosted by celebrity chefs Guy Fieri and Mario Batali, along with an incredible lineup of Bay Area chefs, including Douglas Keane, John Ash and Kendall-Jackson Executive Chef Justin Wangler, among more than a dozen others.
I’ll be broadcasting live at this event with Steve Garner and The Good Food Hour on KSRO-AM. This is the 17th Annual Kendall Jackson Heirloom Tomato Festival, and it is definitely one of the highlight events in Sonoma County!
I’ll also be judging the Chef’s Challenge, where chefs compete against one another to see who can create the dish that best showcases the tomato. There is a waiting list for this event, but it’s worth it to try to make it, and to put it on your calendar for next year. It’s always a good time!
