Side Dishes: Top chefs come out for Stowe event

Published August 17, 2010 at 3:58 p.m.

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.
