Chef Kerry Makes Sandwich, Helps Pets, Wins Statue
April 28, 2013
Dublin, CA- On a warm, spring evening in the heart of the East Bay, the Dublin Rotary Club held their 5th annual Top Chef Grand Tasting Event at the Shannon Community Center. This charity gala benefited the East Bay Humane Society, with the proceeds going to programs that train therapy dogs to seniors and others in need. Over 200 guests turned out to taste wares provided by 12 different Bay Area restaurants. Each restaurant was teamed with a Livermore Valley winery, and together each team provided a food and wine pairing.
Despite such high caliber competition such as Armadillo Willie's, Elephant Bar, and Eddie Papa's, Chef Kerry took home the prize by serving a Pulled Pork and Havarti Panini with Chayote and Apple Vinegar Slaw. The sandwich was matched with a 2009 Red Zinfandel from Bent Creek Winery. Bent Creek won an award for Best Wine. It was a clean sweep for our booth!
