I am surprised that no-one has mentioned the great and glorious event at Culver Studios on Sunday.
Most, if not all, of the great chefs in Los Angeles were standing on their feet for hours and cooking in support of research for childhood cancer.
It was an opportunity to meet some of L.A.'s finest chefs as well as chefs from other parts of the U.S.The chefs from Animal were cooking and serving quail. Delicious
Nancy Silverton prepared those amazing ribs from Mozza
The guys from Sotto prepared the best pork belly I have ever tasted in my life
Huckleberry and Sweet Rose Creamery got a lot of love for their donations of a full-on bakery and ice cream parlor.
David Lentz of Hungry Cat had an oyster bar, all you can eat, oysters plus those incredible shrimp.Oh, yes, he also brought his bar and bartenders:)
Did I mention that the chef from Providence was serving up some pretty damn amazing clam chowder
I was thrilled meeting Gabrielle Hamilton from Prune in New York
The chef from Vetri in Philadelphia had something amazing
Lots of info and photos on www.eater.com or some link on Facebook.
I am excited about returning to restaurants which had slipped off of my radar.
The high point of the day is when two women were trying to outbid each other for a "Great Women's Chef Meal". The chefs included: Alice Waters, Nancy Silverton, Sherry Yard, Suzanne Goin, and I can not remember the name of the world class Sommelier. High bid was $62,000 for a dinner for 12 at home prepared by these luminaries. Interesting is that the runner up bid $61,000.
Thanks to Suzanne Goin, Carolyn Styne and David Lentz getting this together. I was unable to go last year. Happy to have made it this year. Hope to meet some Chowhounders next year.
