Monday night brought out the bigwigs in the Cleveland culinary scene for the Slow Foods Bastille Day Celebration. We had chefs, an iron chef, the coolest kids ever, and a very nice jackass:
Steve Schimoler & Mike Symon (Mike, sorry about the pic, it was the only one and I couldn't not include you:)
The Widow Family in all our golden glory.
Randoms + Ryan Dunn (of Jackass fame & fortune)
The food was on point and super yum and the entire event raised tons of cashola for the upcoming Terra Madre Conference in Turin, Italy.
Roasted Kid Goat w/ bacon & quail egg
Events like the one on Monday should happen WAY more frequently in Cleveland. Getting all the cefs together in support of something shows such a camaraderie in a very important industry. Believing in each other as equals instead of competition is so important in this little city of ours. Cheers to you boys (& girls)!!
And to top a great event off, we celebrated the only way you can on Bastille Day!
