events Chefs for Scher: A Culinary Event Celebrating Late New York Restaurateur Steven Scher

Join Host Chef Laurent Tourondel of BLT Restaurants, and some of the country’s most renowned chefs, restaurateurs, and food and beverage professionals, as they gather together to keep their friend and colleague Steven Scher’s name and spirit alive. This all-star group will showcase their signature creations in a walk around tasting where guests can sample the food and drinks and mingle with their favorite chefs in the restaurant and food TV world. Champagne and wines will be specially selected by Jean Luc Le Dû of Le Dû’s Wines and Zyr Vodka will be paired.

The festivities continue with a live and silent auction offering several chance-of-a-lifetime packages including travel to NYC’s Wine and Food Festival, a home-cooked dinner by your favorite chef, and a highly coveted table at Rao’s. All of the participants hold a special place in their hearts for the late restaurateur Steven Scher and are eager to help raise funds to support the scholarship for aspiring restaurateurs in his name. We hope you are inspired to join them too!
