Celebrity chefs Robert Irvine, of the Food Network’s “Dinner: Impossible” and new hit series “Restaurant: Impossible,” and Jonathon Sawyer, sous chef for Michael Symon on “Iron Chef America” and owner of Greenhouse Tavern, will appear at Clowes Memorial Hall on Nov. 16 at 7:30 p.m. for a public event to benefit the Mozel Sanders Foundation.
The event is being presented by “Clowes Off Center,” Clowes Memorial Hall’s new alternative event lineup. The event, titled “Cooking: Possible,” will feature video segments from Irvine’s popular TV series, as well as an onstage cooking demo from both chefs. The live cooking demo will be projected to a large screen above the stage and feature close up cameras for greater detail.
Reserved seat tickets are $40 and are on sale beginning Oct. 14. There are also a limited number of VIP tickets available for $150, which offer table seating on the stage, opportunities for interaction with the chefs and a private pre-show meet and greet.
In addition, there will be a live auction during the event for the prestigious “Chef’s Table.” The winner of the auction will be seated next to the cooking demo area and will have the opportunity to dine on the food that is prepared that evening.
The auction proceeds as well as proceeds from the evening’s event will go to benefit the Mozel Sanders Foundation.
The event marks a return to Indianapolis for Irvine, whose Food Network show “Restaurant: Impossible” recently featured area restaurant The Snooty Fox as one of its makeover recipients. In the show, Chef Irvine attempts to save America’s most desperate restaurants from impending failure in just two days with a budget of only $10,000.
This year, the Mozel Sanders Foundation is celebrating 40 years of service to the greater Indianapolis community and anticipates delivering over 40,000 hot meals prepared at Butler University and 39 satellite locations on Thanksgiving Day to the elderly, the medically confined and the needy.
