An all-star cookout

epicure 26 January 2011

With eight chefs teaming up with De Dietrich for the Celebrity Chefs Charity Cookathon, guests will be plied with a day of gourmet delights.

Hardcore home cooks will not want to sit this one out. De Dietrich is teaming up with eight local chefs for, get this—a six-hour cooking marathon held at the John Jacob Ballroom in  The St. Regis Singapore on 26 March. The brief given to each chef? 30 minutes to showcase a dish inspired by something they enjoyed as a kid. The premise is apt, as all proceeds go to the Little Arts Academy, which provides equal opportunity for all children between the ages of five and 19 to  develop their talents in dance, visual arts, music and theatre.

"The Celebrity Chefs Charity Cookathon (CCCC) brings them together to share their culinary passion and explore innovative cooking technologies. The celebrity chefs get to showcase their favourite childhood recipes while cuisine connoisseurs will have the opportunity to pick up tips and sample the creations—all while benefitting The Little Arts Academy and encouraging these children to pursue their dreams,” says Serene Kwok, marketing manager for De Dietrich.

Aside from De Dietrich, which will provide state-of-the-art equipment for the chefs, sponsors for the cookathon include The St. Regis Singapore, Huber's Butchery, Classic Fine Foods, WMF, JC Wines, FIJI Water and epicure magazine.

The Itinerary…
From 12.30 to 6.30pm, eight chefs will be conducting live cooking demonstrations. The event will also include a tasting menu of all eight courses, a cocktail reception and photo taking opportunities with the participating celebrity chefs.

It’s also an opportunity for guests to chat and understand the chefs’ cuisine better, during the Meet and Greet Cocktail Session. There will also be a limited edition recipe book giveaway featuring the dishes presented by the chefs to all guests.
