enjoy dinner with a chef and support a good cause

Check out this line up. Pretty impressive, don’t you agree? Now how would you like to spend an evening with one of these talented chefs where they will prepare for you a small feast table-side specifically for you and a handful of fellow diners? And with each wonderful bite, you’ll feel extra satisfied because you are supporting a good cause.

On September 27th at the Intercontinental Hotel, it’s time once again for Flavors of Northeast Ohio, a fabulous culinary event that benefits the American Liver Foundation. Guests of 10 will sit at one of the following chef’s tables and enjoy a gourmet five-course dinner plus wine pairings. Tickets are $200 and on sale now.

I attended this event last year and have played a small role in organizing this year’s event. I can tell you that I thankfully do not know anyone directly affected with liver disease. But last year, I met so many wonderful individuals who shared their incredibly personal stories. I cried listening to them talk about their struggles, their families and how this organization and the good people of our community have helped them. Each was filled with hope, promise and incredible courage. We are so fortunate that we not only live in a town surrounded by such world-class healthcare and research, but a community of organizations and foundations, chefs and everyday donors that go above and beyond to help others.

So whether you’re a foodie or have in some way been affected by this disease, this is a great way to help. I know from first-hand experience that you’ll have a wonderful evening, dine on perfectly delicious cuisine and engage with our chefs on a fun and unique level. I hope to see you there!
