James Beard hits the road

james beardThe James Beard Foundation's Celebrity Chef Tour pulls into the Renaissance Baltimore Harborplace on Thursday night. Tickets for the multi-course dinner are $140, and proceeds benefit the James Beard Foundation. The host chef for the event is Watertable's executive chef, Sean Curry.

The Celebrity Chef Tour is like a modern day Circuit Chautauqua for food-lovers, a way of exporting the James Beard House experience outside of New York City.  The Beard House dining room is seen in the photo at left.

Guest chefs include:

-- Marc Murphy (owner, Benchmark Restaurants, NYC), who has guest-judged on "Chopped" and "Iron Chef America"

-- Jennifer Carroll (chef de cuisine, 10 Arts Bistro & Lounge, Philadelphia), a sixth-edition "Top Chef" finalist

-- Marc Anthony Bynum (executive chef, Venue 56, Hauppage, NY), a "Chopped" winner, now appearing on "Chopped Champions"

-- Amanda Cook, a recent nominee for James Beard Award for outstanding pastry chef

There is still room for you. For additional information or to purchase tickets, go to this website.
