Dinners Involve Food, Cocktails And Celebrities
Chef Beau MacMillan (Iron Chef America), Chef Brian Malarkey (TV host and chef at Herringboine in San Diego), Chef Shawn McLain (Sames Beard chef from Sage Las Vegas) and Chef Luigi Fieno (Michelin chef from Luigi Al Teatro in Los Angeles) make up the lineup.
ChefDance events take place five nights during Sundance, on Jan. 18-22 in the Memorial Building at 427 Main Street in Park City. They involve several courses of excellent food from appetizers to main courses to desserts prepared by these highly-acclaimed chefs.
Among the food served is an incredibly tasty salmon interesting enough is served cold, a perfectly-cooked tenderloin so tender you can cut it with a fork (against the grain, no less) and a fantastic you-certainly-don’t-get-this-everyday bow-tie pasta smothered in melted smoked gouda cheese.
The food is accompanied by outstanding wines and speciality cocktails and afterward, a film is shown to attendees.
The ChefDance events are attended by celebrities in town for the Sundance Film Festival (Jan. 18-28); among last year’s celebrities were Keanu Reeves and Kevin Bacon.
The events benefit the Art of Elysium, which empowers artists and communities to use art for social change. ChefDance is the creation of LA couple Mimi Kim and Kenny Griswold, who began the events in 2004 to provide “the perfect marriage of fine food and film.”
