Fried Chicken Galore, Chef of Compassion & More
Tasting Table Presents “Bubbly + Crunch”
Great fried chicken will make your eyes roll back into your head. So, too, a fabulous sparkling wine.
Leave it to Tasting Table to pair the two together in one unforgettable night.
Think unlimited fried chicken and bottomless glasses of Gloria Ferrer sparkling wine, plus custom cocktails. But wait, there’s more — dessert, of course.
Among those dishing up the fried chicken will be: Namu Gaji, Comstock Saloon, Nombe, Pican, Miss Ollie’s, Boxing Room, Abura-Ya, The Thomas, Farmerbrown’s–Little Skillet, and Grease Box. The sweets will be courtesy of: Humphry Slocombe, Pop Art Bakeshop, Delise Dessert Café and Sweet Collections.
Tickets are $70.68 each plus a $4.88 processing fee. Food Gal readers can use the code, “TTCrunch” to get 25 percent off, too. Best yet, 5 percent of proceeds will benefit Share Our Strength’s No Kid Hungry campaign.
4th Annual “Chefs of Compassion”
I’ve been a judge at this wonderful, worthwhile event since its inception. I hope you’ll join me on the evening of Sept. 19 at the Computer History Museum in Mountain View for the fourth annual “Chefs of Compassion.”
Four chefs will each cook a course made with ingredients from the food pantry operated by West Valley Community Services, a non-profit that provides support services to those in need.
My fellow judges will include: Stewart Putney of Edible Silicon Valley; Mike Inouye of NBC Bay Area; Tracy Lee of Dishcrawl; Chef Manuel Martinez of LV Mar; and Michael Isip of KQED. We’ll pick the best dish. A “People’s Choice” award also will be given out.
Tickets to this benefit are $125 each.
