You know what’s awesome? Beer. Know what else? Prosciutto. Add in whiskey and Skittles and a man could live on not much else.
Which is why we’re already excited about Cured & Crafted–a celebration of the 50th Anniversary of the Consorzio del Prosciutto di Parma–coming to Philly on February 20, because it’s an event that’s basically all about drinking craft beer and eating as much prosciutto as possible.
Wednesday night, the March of Dimes at the Please Touch Museum Memorial Hall in Fairmount Park held its 17th annual Signature Chefs Auction with delicious cuisine, fine wine, friends and supporters. 30 of Philadelphia’s top chefs including Mike Griffiths of Fork, Kevin Sbraga of Sbraga, chef Jon Cichon of Lacroix, and Ed Konrad and chef Nicholas Elmi of Laurel were on hand serving delicious dishes for the nearly 300 guests at a cocktail reception before the ceremony honoring several people this year. Chichon and Elmi were co-chair chefs. Honorary chair was Carolyn Jackson, CEO, St. Christopher’s Hospital for Children.

Yes, we still have some time before the first episode of the new season of Top Chef, featuring Nick Elmi, Jason Cichonski and a bunch of other people who aren’t from Philly.
But for those of you out there who just can’t wait, we thought it might be nice to offer up a bit of history–a way for you to get a handle on our two hometown chefs and maybe come to understand, once the show starts, why this one is freaking out over his pork chops or why that one is doing that thing to that scallop. To that end, we’ve assembled a Six Pack of places where the two chefs trained, rose to prominence, made names for themselves or, in the case of Jason Cichonski, are still currently cooking (Elmi is unemployed at the moment, but working on opening his first restaurant–Laurel on East Passyunk).
It would make a helluva restaurant crawl. Or maybe something to do on the weekend before Top Chef premiers. But we're not telling you how to live your life...
