Enjoy dinner cooked by celebrity chefs at The Palisades, help feed local children at the same time
On Friday and Saturday of St. Patty’s Day week (March 18 and 19) celebrity chefs will flock to The Palisades Restaurant in Eggleston to help raise money for the Giles County Summer Lunch program by cooking up delicious six-course meals. Diners can come out and sample these luxurious and fanciful plates for $150 per person.
Now in its seventh year, this special event helped to raise $4,000 last year for the lunch program allowing kids to receive a wider variety of healthier foods and allowed the deliveries to reach those in the outlying areas. During the summer of 2015, more than 6,000 lunches were served to children who, when school is out, don’t always have a reliable source of food.
This year’s celebrity chefs include Ed Carew from New York City, who has worked in the kitchens of such prolific eateries as the four-star Spiagga in Chicago, Gramercy Tavern and Fiamma Osteria NYC. Carew is a graduate of the Culinary Institute of America and has recently opened his own restaurant, Broken Spoke Rotisserie, in Manhattan.
Chef Steven Brown of Minneapolis operate two restaurants, Tilia and St. Genevieve, in the Twin Cities and has a Mobil 5 Star rating for such dishes as a wild-rice soup made with celeriac bisque and wild-rice grains transformed into grape-sized roasted puffs.
Chef Christine Hazel of Philadelphia will also be cooking at the Palisades. She was a contestant on Season 14 of Gordon Ramsey’s “Hell’s Kitchen” and is the current sous chef for AT&T at Augusta National Golf Club for the Master’s Tournament.
Rounding out this all-star line-up are a couple of familiar faces. Head Chef Kevin White and Pasty Chef Devin Giles of the Palisades Restaurant will also be burnishing their pans in the kitchen. They both hones their culinary skills at the internationally renowned, award-winning restaurant, The Inn at Little Washington, before coming to Eggleston in 2013.
The two nights of delicious fare is sure to bring anyone’s taste buds to life. Get your tickets soon and support a worthy program.
