If Hot Kitchen’s Sean Chaney escapes the kitchen without being torn apart by PETA protestors today, he’ll be joining Abigaile chef Tin Vuong and several of his peers on December 12 for a collaborative six-course tasting menu. That Wednesday, Vuong will also welcome Bernard Mairinger of BierBeisl, Michael’s chef John Carlos Kuramoto, Meg Hall of Made by Meg Catering, and Cake Bakeshop’s chef and owner, Lara Mandracchia. The chefs will each contribute a different dish to a $65 menu, with a reception at 6:30 P.M. featuring beers from Abigaile’s in-house brewing operation. The first event launches Abigaile’s monthly "Kitchen Takeover" series, which will introduce five news chefs to Vuong’s kitchen each month, with a portion of December’s proceeds going to Beach Cities Toy Drive. Reservations can be made online or at 310-798-8227.
