The Epicurean Project and Martin Preferred Foods has announced the first-of-its-kind culinary event that will bring together Houston chefs to showcase what’s new and what’s making the cut in the food world.

Slated for the evening of Wednesday, October 5, the event will take place at Silver Street Studios event complex. Acclaimed chefs, carefully selected and invited to participate by invitation only, will gather to showcase trend-setting food and menu ideas, share ideas, offer personal insights and highlight techniques. Confirmed guest chefs include Adison Lee at KUU Restaurant, David Skinner at Eculent, Giancarlo Ferrara at Amalfi, Hassan Obaye at La Table, Ivan Giani at Springbok, Chef Rob at Max’s Wine Dive, Jacques Fox at Artisans, Liberty Kitchen, Sandro Scarafile at Sud-Italia, Culinary Institute LeNotre, Graham Brown at The Cookhouse and Richard Mendoza at Westin Woodlands. Participation by additional chefs, to be announced, will further heighten the exceptional opportunities to interact with Houston’s most talented culinary experts.

Before the event, chefs will receive a curated assemblage of carefully selected exceptional ingredients from Martin’s extensive inventory — specialty meats, wild game, fresh seafood, domestic and imported bacon, ham and charcuterie, as well as fine and domestic and imported cheeses, pastry ingredients, European-style breads, butters and pâtés, organic products, olive oils, truffles and caviar — and create a dish that reflects the personality and flair of the preparing chef.

Benefiting Houston Food Bank, The Epicurean Project promises to showcase the chefs’ passion for their craft, the finest ingredients and memorable presentation.

A limited number of tickets at $50 each will be sold to preserve an interactive atmosphere with chefs for sharing ideas, offering personal insights and highlighting techniques. To purchase, click here.
