Celebrity Chef Tour dinner series comes to St. Louis

March 6th 12:03pm, 2012

If you obsess over celeb chef Twitter feeds, keep tabs on which culinary gurus have earned top industry awards and even plan your vacations around trendsetting restaurants, then you’ll want to hear about the Celebrity Chef Tour that’s coming to St. Louis on Monday, April 16.

The Celebrity Chef Tour, which benefits the James Beard Foundation, is an on-the-road version of a dinner at the James Beard House, the “perfomance space” in New York City for visiting chefs. The dinner series in St. Louis will take place at Sidney Street Cafe and will be hosted by chef-owner Kevin Nashan. The event will be an eight-course affair prepared by an all-star cast of 11 chefs, including four who have built a reputation in St. Louis. Besides Nashan, Josh Galliano of Monarch, Gerard Craft of the Niche family of restaurants and Kevin Willmann of Farmhaus, are all participating. In case you didn’t know, these four were recently named semifinalists for a James Beard Award in the Best Chef: Midwest category.

Other guest celebrity chefs that will be cooking at the Sidney Street dinner include Kelly English, chef-owner of Restaurant Iris in Memphis and the recently opened Kelly English Steakhouse in St. Charles; Debbie Gold of The American Restaurant in Kansas City; Alex Lee of the Glen Oaks Country Club in Long Island, N.Y.; Randy Lewis, a noted chef from the Bay Area who is working to open his project, Parish Eleven, in San Francisco; Martín Rios of Restaurant Martín in Sante Fe; John B. Shields, who began his culinary training in St. Louis and is currently exec chef at Town House in Chilhowie, Va.; and Michael Sullivan, a charcuterie wunderkind at Blackberry Farm near the Great Smoky Mountains in Walland, Tenn.

Unfortunately, the dinner has already sold out. However, Nashan confirmed that he is working hard to try and fit as many diners from the waiting list as possible into the dinner. Call Sidney Street to get on the waiting list for your $190 ticket today and, for more information on this all-inclusive affair, click here.
