|Top Chef Nyesha Arrington Hosts a Backyard Pig Roast!|
The pig is sure to be delicious, but the cast of participating chefs are the real attraction. A veritable who's-who of Top Chef alums -- namely Alex Reznik (La Seine), Antonia LaFaso, Ilan Hall (The Gorbals), Jamie Lauren, Sally Camacho, Marcel Vigneron, CJ Jacobson (The Yard), Danielle Keene (Bittersweet Treats), and Top Chef Masters Mark Peel (Campanile) and Suzanne Tracht (Jar) -- are serving up an entire pig and pulled pork, pork belly, spare ribs, and pig ears alongside BBQ sides and desserts. Wash it all down with Trashcan Punches from mixologist Devon Espinosa of Pour Vous and Michel Dozois of Neve Ice, craft beer from Firestone Walker, Smog City Brewing, and Haven Gastropub +Brewery, and espresso drinks from Handsome Coffee Roasters.
Tickets for the event are $55/each and available via Share Our Strength. Guests will also have the opportunity to purchase tickets for Taste of the Nation Los Angeles on June 10, 2012 in West Hollywood at a discounted price (regular price is $110/ticket).
