Celebrity Chef Tour comes to Minneapolis
|A foodie's dream come true.|
For those not familiar, James Beard, who passed away in 1985, was a great supporter of the art of American cuisine who sought to share his knowledge of fine food and wine not only with professional chefs but with great lovers of food. The event on Thursday is a benefit for the James Beard Foundation's funding of the House, a place where budding chefs can showcase their talents. The foundation also offers scholarships and educational opportunities to new chefs, along with bestowing the esteemed James Beard Award.
McKee will work alongside visiting chef Susur Lee, a Hong Kong-born virtuoso and Top Chef Master finalist, who combines the arts of Chinese and traditional French cooking in a unique fusion. Expect the extraordinary as the two chefs mingle with the crowd and share tasting menus with wine, beer, and spirits pairings.
