Host a dinner party, help save a farm

| No Comments | No TrackBacks

How much would you pay to have Top Chef winner Stephanie Izard cook dinner for you in your kitchen? If your answer's not at least $1000, it probably ain't gonna happen.

The bids are getting pretty high in Swan Creek Farm's benefit auction, which features in-home dinners for six from 15 different local chefs, including Izard, Bill Kim (Urban Belly), Carol Wallack (sola), Giuseppe Tentori (Boka), Randy Zweiban (Province) and more. The auction ends tonight between 8 p.m. and 9:20 p.m., so start scrounging.

If you can't afford the hefty donation (proceeds go to Swan Creek Farms, which just endured a debilitating truck fire), head to Goose Island Brewery tonight from 6-9 p.m. to find out who could. The $25 event also includes beer, snacks, giveaways and a contest for a free wine-tasting event at Juicy Wine Co.
