Each year WOSU Public Media hosts, “Chefs in the City,” an annual culinary event featuring some of Columbus’s finest Chefs and one celebrity Chef. Each Chef is invited to showcase their extraordinary cooking skills in front of a live audience. Proceeds from the event will benefit children’s educational programming on WOSU TV.
This year, I got the honor to meet and photograph master Chef, Jacques Pepin. If you’re not familiar with Chef Pepin, he is highly regarded for his classic French cuisine. Over 60 years of cooking experience and 26 books written on the subject, he is a true legend and one of the most influential Chefs in the culinary world. He’s quite witty and charming too.
This year’s Chefs:
Jeni Britton Bauer – Jeni’s Splendid Ice Creams
Richard Blondin – Refectory
Travis Hyde – Z Cucina
Hubert Seifert – Spagio
John Skaggs – Two Caterers
David Tetzloff – G. Michael’s Bistro
To view the show, tune in this Saturday, April 30, at 1pm on WOSU TV and May 1, at 4pm on WOSU PLUS
Here are some highlights from the event including the shots of the most declicious food ever, and the desert from Jeni’s … oh goodness you’ve got to try it to believe it.
