So many awesome chefs came together to put on this holiday party for these lucky guests. I had a blast photographing and participating in this event. It was so great to see all this talent come together in one space. You can see some select images below, and the entire event HERE.
The flier for the event:
“San Diego’s notorious collection of notable chefs and mixologists, is hosting a premiere event this December. Taking a step back into the age of Queen Victoria with a classic French-inspired twist, Christmas Dinner! will be held at Oliver & Rose on Sunday, Dec. 16th from 1:00 to 5:00 pm. Cooks Confab has teamed up with longtime partner Slow Food Urban San Diego to give a select group of San Diegans an unforgettable, one-of-a-kind Christmas experience.
This Christmas Dinner! will be a more intimate and unique Confab experience, with limited seats available for a single seating. Guests will feel as if they have been transported back in time thanks to the sights, sounds and smells of a quintessential English repast, and due in part as well by the request that all arrive in dinner attire, period dress or even Steampunk-inspired garb. Driven by standout talent, quality of product and exceptional technique, the chef’s unique styles will be represented in an array of old-fashioned fare, from standing rib roast served hot and sliced tableside, to classic dishes involving aspic and terrines. The elegant event space, as well as the servers, will be dressed accordingly for the event, including butler service and classic silver tableware.”
Participating Confab chefs include: Andrew Spurgin (Andrew Spurgin); Katie Grebow (Café Chloe); Jeff Jackson (A.R. Valentien); Chad White; Melissa Mayer (Martini Media); Amy DiBiase (The Shores Restaurant); Olivier Bioteau (The Farm House Café); Donald Coffman (Culinary Concepts); Ian Ward & Lucien Conner (Pick & Rocks); James Rauh (The West Bean)
