A Night With Stephanie Izard, Executive Chef of Girl & the Goat

2 Feb

I get a lot of emails for events through my in-box, but this one looked really fun and for a great cause. Considering the waiting list for Girl & the Goat is months deep, this would be a great chance to experience Stephanie Izard’s fare a little sooner than you might otherwise.

Stephanie Izard, Season 4 winner in Bravo’s Top Chef competition and executive chef of Girl & the Goat, headlines the 19th annual Great Chefs Tasting Party® benefiting UCP of Greater Chicago. More than 40 of Chicago’s best-known chefs will share their fare with a crowd of food enthusiasts and avid diners. Last year, Great Chefs drew 800 guests.

This year’s event adds a VIP room where Izard will serve up cooking demonstrations with fellow Top Chef alum Dale Levitski, executive chef at Chicago’s Sprout Restaurant. VIP guests will have reserved seating, bottle service and an opportunity to bid on premium items in the new live auction.

It’s a great night for great chefs gathered to support a great cause.
