Andrew Michael Italian Kitchen is thrilled to announce it will host a Friends of James Beard Benefit® on Sunday, April 14, 2013 in Memphis, TN.
Friends of Beard dinners are held around the country and modeled after dinners at the eponymous Beard House. These special evenings bring together talented chefs to collaborate in a single kitchen for a multi-course menu.
Chefs Andy and Michael will host five up-and-coming guest chefs from all over the country for the 7-course meal: David Posey of Blackbird in Chicago, IL, Jason Fox of Commonwealth in San Francisco, CA, Jason Stanhope of Fig in Charleston, SC, Jeff McInnis of Yardbird in Miami Beach, FL and Stephanie Prida of Manresa in Los Gatos, CA.
The theme of the evening is “Know Your Food, Know Your Roots.” Each chef will be encouraged to use products rooted in their respective regions, and to create a dish that symbolizes their “roots” – whether their hometown or their current city, their ancestry or childhood inspirations.
Tickets are limited and can be purchased by contacting Brittney Andres, Marketing and Events Manager, via email (email@example.com). Ticket price includes food, beverage, tax and gratuity.
All proceeds from the event will go to benefit the James Beard Foundation, a not-for-profit culinary organization whose mission is to celebrate, nurture and preserve America’s diverse culinary heritage and future. Proceeds from Friends of Beard benefit dinners are divided equally between the Foundation’s scholarship program and general operation.
