The Southeast’s Most Celebrated Chefs Provide Intimate Dining Experience at the Exclusive Culinary Event Benefiting CURE Childhood Cancer
The St. Regis Atlanta is thrilled to announce the enhanced third annual Out of the Kitchen dining event, taking place at the iconic, recently refreshed Buckhead property on October 30, 2019. A collection of 20 illustrious regional chefs will prepare an interactive experience for discerning diners, with the event’s proceeds benefiting CURE Childhood Cancer, a local nonprofit dedicated to funding pediatric cancer research and providing meaningful support to children and families facing a cancer diagnosis.
New to this year’s event, Out of the Kitchen will now include two special tables with different sponsorship levels that will present elevated experiences to VIP guests. The first sponsorship level at $15,000 includes premium seating for 12 with Chef Philippe Haddad of Cape Dutch providing the meal, Nickel & Nickel Winery table service, a suite for the table host at The St. Regis the night of the event, access to the exclusive after party and chef reception, and name/logo recognition on all event materials. The second sponsorship level at $20,000 includes premium seating for 12 with Chef Fuyuhiko Ito of Umi as the attending chef, Louis Roederer Cristal table service, five rooms for guests and a suite for the table host at The St. Regis that night, access to the exclusive after party and chef reception, an engraved bottle of Cristal for each couple to take home, and name/logo recognition on all event materials.
“This event brings together some of the most talented chefs and philanthropic individuals in the region,” said Guntram Merl, general manager of The St. Regis Atlanta. “What truly makes this event one-of-a-kind is the charitable purpose behind Out of the Kitchen.”
Teaming up with culinary co-chairs Chef Jordan Barnett of The St. Regis Atlanta and Chef Philippe Haddad of Cape Dutch, The St. Regis Atlanta will continue to donate 100 percent of the event proceeds to CURE Childhood Cancer. Since its inception in 2017, the event has raised a cumulative total of $446,000 for the cause.
The unconventional event will take place in the Astor Ballroom inside The St. Regis Atlanta, followed by an after party and chef reception, which will be hosted at the hotel’s new three-story meeting and event space, Maisonette. The event will host 240 guests with chefs selecting the freshest and most divine ingredients to create a remarkable three-course tableside meal for 12 guests at each table. Attendees will enjoy live entertainment and delicious food, while also having the privilege to interact with the thought leaders of Atlanta. The evening commences with a champagne reception and concludes with an elaborate dessert reception presented by Pastry Chef Daniela Lea of The St. Regis Atlanta.
All chefs are contributing their time and talent to the fundraising event. Returning chefs from 2018 include: Philippe Haddad (CapeDutch), Reinaldo Santosa (The St. Regis Atlanta), Gerry Klaskala (Aria), Piero Premoli (Pricci), Jaime Adams (Il Giallo Osteria & Bar), Fuyuhiko Ito (Umi), Pano Karatassos (Kyma), Deedee Niyomkul (Chaiyo), Cyrille Holota (Le Bilboquet), Peter Kaiser (Kaiser’s Chophouse), and Joe Schafer (Atlanta Hawks).
