Chinook Meadow will be seeing stars this summer – Food Network stars that is. Top Chef’s Antonia Lofaso, Iron Chef’s Cat Cora and local celebrity chefs will grace the meadow for the 2016 Farm to Fork series.
This year Farm to Fork will be held the second Sunday of each month on July 10, August 14 and September 11. Like last year’s inaugural event, the day begins at 10 a.m. with a Farmers Market and culminates with a cooking demonstration by a celebrity chef at 7 p.m.
Lofaso will display her prowess in July, Cora in August and a special local celebrity chef barbecue rib cook-off will round out the summer in September.
Antonia Lofaso is currently an executive chef and owner of Black Market and Scopa Italian Roots in Los Angeles and is frequently seen as a recurring judge on Food Network’s hit show “Cutthroat Kitchen.”
Aside from her tenure on “Iron Chef America,” Cat Cora has made numerous television appearances including NBC’s “Celebrity Cooking Showdown,” “America’s Best Cook,” “Food Fighter” and the Bravo series “Around the World in 80 Plates.”
Local celebrity chefs will gather for a rib cook-off at the September Farm to Fork. The cook-off includes one complimentary Laughing Dog Beer or glass of wine from Clearwater Canyon Winery and a sample tasting of each chef’s ribs, while supplies last. Profits from each ticket sold will go to the charity of the winning chef’s choice.
Tickets for each event vary and are available on TicketsWest.com. *Events will be held in the Chinook Meadow. In the case of rain, the event will be moved indoors.
