A Look at What Was Served at Vetri’s Great Chefs Event

On June 12, more than 50 chefs from around the world descended on the spacious Urban Outfitters cafeteria in the Philadelphia Navy Yard to join Marc Vetri and Jeff Benjamin for the 2012 Great Chefs Event. The annual fundraiser, now in its seventh year, raised over $1 million for the Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation by way of ticket sales, sponsorships, donations and a silent and live auction. (The best item on the block had to be the 21-course private dinner with Vetri, Benjamin, Jeff Michaud and Michael Solomonov, which garnered $38,000 after the chefs promised to cook wearing only undergarments - it’s to help cure childhood cancer, after all!) Great food and drink was proffered in abundance, and we captured pics of several of the renowned chefs in attendance, along with the eats they prepared. Take a spin through the slideshow below to see what was cooked up.
