Cincy State benefit

Here's a cool event I've toyed with going to in past years but never quite gotten around to attending. Cincinnati State hosts "1 Night, 12 Kitchens" for the third year. The fundraiser, which benefits the Cincinnati State College Foundation culinary scholarships, showcases signature recipes from top local chefs cooking in twelve kitchens - appetizers, main courses, desserts and wines for guests to sample. Yum! (I should not write things like this when I am hungry. It's like grocery shopping when I'm hungry!) Chefs include Toon Yangkanaysin (Beluga), Michelle Brown (Jag's), Julie Francis (Nectar), Jeff Ledford (Red), David Falk (Boca - that's him in the photo), Chris Burns (JeanRo Bistro) and more.

It's 6-9 p.m. this Sunday, April 29, at the Midwest Culinary Institue at Cincinnati State College, 35209 Central Parkway. General admission: $75 includes food and wine sampling and kitchen tours. $150 VI Ptickets include the sampling plus a bit more - "exclusive culinary stations," private meet-n-greets w/ top chefs, recipe cards, etc.

Get your ticket: 513-562-2777.

And now that age-old question...what's for dinner? Hm, might be some beef stew with dumpling that we froze when it was a lot more frosty than it is today.

I did go, after seeing this. it was great. the food was awesome. it looked like a sold out event. I had a great time and will definitely go back. but there was no David Falk, no boca to be seen anywhere.
