|Alex and Aki of Ideas in Food are talented photographers as well as chefs|
Ideas in Food’s Alex Talbot and Aki Kamozawa will be contributing, bringing dishes like preserved strawberries with “the tastiest beets ever” (according to their popular blog). John Shields - former sous at both Charlie Trotter’s and Alinea in Chicago - will join them, along with his wife and pastry chef Karen (the duo has plans to open their own spot in Philly soon). Rounding out the cast of top toques will be Michelin-starred and James Beard Award-nominated Chicago chef Curtis Duffy.
Seats at the event aren’t cheap, at $145 each (add $65 for wine pairings), but if you have the means and the time, your palate will certainly thank you. Call for reservations (6 PM hors d'oevures, 7 PM dinner; 609-924-0078).
