Catch a Rising Star 

Side Dishes: Top chefs come out for Stowe event

Regulars at Vermont food festivals have had their share of decadent bites from area eateries. But they probably haven’t tried the fare from JCT Kitchen & Bar, Miramont or Pigalle — because those restaurants are located in Atlanta; Bryan, Texas; and Boston, respectively.

Chefs from all three — along with 13 other famed cooks from Vermont, Boston and the Southeast — will ply their trade this Saturday at the second annual Star Chef Food & Wine Show. The event, a benefit for the Vermont Campaign to End Childhood Hunger, is held at Topnotch Resort and Spa.

Organizer Mark Timms, the resort’s executive chef, says he’s excited to raise money for a good cause, but also hopes the occasion will win his local chef friends some (more) national attention. Out-of-town attendees will include staffers from New York’s James Beard House and a buyer from the Food Network.

Timms expects to impress attendees with a Maine lobster roll topped with refreshing ginger foam. Todd Rogers of Miramont is bringing Wagyu short ribs. Bob Waggoner — host of the PBS series “U Cook With Chef Bob!” — plans to make shrimp and grits.

Friday night, there’s a meet-and-greet with the chefs, including big names such as Boston’s Kenneth Oringer of Clio and Dante de Magistris of Restaurant Dante. During Saturday’s main event, from noon to 5 p.m., diners get unlimited tasting.
