Here's the Lineup for This Year's Dine Out with the Chefs Event
Translation: you've got two hours to booze, stuff your face, and snap some grip and grins with some of the Valleys most notable taste makers -- all for a good cause, of course.
That's right. From 3 to 5 p.m. on Sunday, October 7, over 25 of the Valley's top chefs (think Vincent Guerithault, Beau MacMillan, and Country Velador) will be on hand preparing gourmet creations from soups, to salads, to signature dishes and desserts. And along with the eats, this year's event features wine, beer, vodka, and coffee tastings, cooking demos, and special guests like cocktails from Jason Asher of Jade Bar at Sanctuary Camelback Mountain Resort & Spa, Arizona winemaker Sam Pillsbury, and David M. Johnson, sommelier and wine blogger.
So who's going to be there and how much will it cost?
