James Beard Culinary Mix five-course dinner at Kuro
Start off 2017 in a delicious way with a five-course dinner prepared by James Beard Award-winning chefs, and hosted by TV celebrity chef Ted Allen — all at Kuro on January 19. Part of the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino, this Japanese restaurant will be home to the dinner, which benefits the James Beard Foundation’s new National Scholars program.
A pre-dinner VIP ticket gives you access to a cocktail reception at the hotel’s L Bar, where you can meet Ted Allen and Chef Marcus Samuelsson, chef/owner of Red Rooster Harlem and Streetbird Rotisserie. After the dinner there will be a Q&A with the chefs to top off the evening.
Tickets are $175 and $250 per person and can be purchased via Ticketmaster. Kuro is at 1 Seminole Way, Hollywood.
