‘Top Chef’ headlines local fundraiser
HAVERHILL – The nation’s newest celebrity chef Kristen Kish of Boston is the featured guest at the inaugural Spring Celebrity Series event to benefit Emmaus.
In February, Kish won the culinary competition series “Top Chef Seattle: Season 10” on the Bravo network. Kish will prepare a dish, discuss her technique and take questions from the audience.
The event takes place May 8, from 7:30 to 9 p.m., with a VIP reception beginning at 6:15, at the Rogers Center for the Arts on the campus of Merrimack College, 315 Turnpike St., North Andover.
Kish plans and prepares the dining experience each day at Stir in Boston’s South End. The store is one in a series of kitchens and restaurants that are the brainchild of Chef Barbara Lynch, whom Kish credits with expanding her culinary horizons.
Proceeds from the Spring Celebrity Series event will benefit Emmaus’ operating budget and support programs such as emergency shelter, adult education and meals.
General admission tickets are $25, which includes the presentation, audience Q&A and post-presentation reception. VIP tickets are $75 each and include a private reception with the chef before the presentation. A silent auction offering entertaining and culinary gifts will continue throughout the evening.
