Great Chefs Coming to Town

Marc Vetri has created a great charitable event in his annual Great Chefs Event that benefits Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation. Now in its sixth year the night features 30 renowned chefs from around the globe (20 are 2011 James Beard nominees) cooking for childhood cancer cures.

The event takes place on Tuesday, June 14th at Urban Outfitters Headquarters in the Navy Yard. Tickets start at $300 per person but by all accounts, the fundraiser is the food event of the year.

Check out the list of participating chefs below, including Barbara Lynch who will also be the guest chef at May’s Amis’ industry night where she’ll be preparing an Italian clambake.
