A legendary feast took place at Solera last Thursday as a multitude of culinary superpowers combined forces at a benefit for the James Beard Foundation--supporters of all things educational and extraordinary about food. Nine chefs. Nine courses. Here is the team: Top Chef Masters finalist Susar Lee; Beard's Best Chef Midwest, 2009, Tim McKee; the Dakota's Jack Riebel; Saffron's Sameh Wadi; Sea Change's Erik Anderson; La Belle Vie's Mike DeCamp; Solera's J.P. Samuelson; Heartland's Lenny Russo; and dessert by La Belle Vie's pastry chef Diane Yang. It was a gastronomical event of epic proportions, and we are here to share it with you, course-by-course, in this new slideshow. Photos by Steve Neuharth and Michelle Leon.
