Sunday, May 4 was the annual Star Chefs On Broadway 2008. It was my first time going and it was a blast! The dinner/auction benefited local performing arts education and was held in the Pantages Theater Lobby.
The décor was spectacular and the entertainment was great. We were serenaded by the sounds of a French band as we strolled through the silent auction items. Then the emcee of the night stepped on stage with his extraordinarily fake French accent, mustache and carpet bag coat. I LOVED HIM. The auction was accompanied with tons of bids, laughing and “OLE!”
The dinner menu included courses by:
Charlie McManus of Primo Grill (appetizers)
Matt Brandsey of Sea Grill (soup)
Peter Weikel of Stadium Bistro (salad)
Tristan Holst of El Gaucho (entrée)
Gay Landry of Affairs Bakery & Café (desserts)
Corresponding wines from artisan winemakers Craig Larson of Maryhill Winery, Ron Bunnell of Bunnell Family Cellar Winery and Rob Newsom of Boudreaux Cellars.
