Common Threads' First-Ever Cook-Off
When Common Threads throws a cookout, you know it's going to be anything but ordinary.
Co-founded by Table Fifty-Two's Art Smith, the kiddie culinary-oriented nonprofit has gathered some of the city's best chefs and mixologists for this first-ever event.
The benefit happens 6:30-9:30pm Sept. 15 at Fulton's on the River, with participating chefs creating and serving their favorite cookout-themed dishes in one of four categories: in a glass, on a bun, in a shell or on a stick. Guests are encouraged to sample each dish and vote on their favorite in each category for the chefs to win prizes.
Here's who will be on deck:
Chris Cavarra—Sable Kitchen & Bar
Paul Chartrand—Jack Binion's Steak House at Horseshoe Casino
Stephen Cole—The Barrelhouse Flat
Scott Gerken—Four Seasons
Stephanie Izard—Girl & the Goat
Sarah Levy—Sarah's Pastries & Candies
Kyle McHugh—Lady Gregory's
John McLean-Burger Bar
