If you, like us, were horrified and disgusted by Hosea’s smiled-upon-by-Satan victory on Top Chef two weeks ago, The Chopping Block has a remedy. They’ve pulled in Carla (our personal favorite) and Stefan (who should have won) for a Top Chef-style battle in support of True Child, a national organization benefiting children.
Carla and Stefan will each lead teams comprised of a Chicago-area chef (Luca Corazzina of 312 Chicago, and Chris Lateano of South Water Kitchen) and an audience member chef (you can bid on the honor). They’ll have 35 minutes to pull together a 3-course meal using the secret ingredients that will be presented a la minute.
Entry to the evening — held April 4 at The Chopping Block, inside the Merchandise Mart — is a slightly steep $150, which includes food and drink plus the chance to participate in various raffles and live auctions, with all proceeds going to help children. But we prefer to think of it as the (low, low) price of correcting a final episode gone horribly wrong.
