Six Top Houston Chefs Collaborate for Upcoming Benefit Dinner
Six of the city’s most popular chefs are gathering to create an extravagant dinner experience as part of the Sunday Supper series hosted by Urban Harvest. It’s the first collaborative Sunday Supper of 2019; the previous one was last November. The event is at Kiran’s, located at 2925 Richmond, on Sunday, April 7 from 6 to 9 p.m.
The dinner is helmed by longtime Houston favorites as well as up-and-comers rapidly becoming well-known among Houston diners. Joining executive chef and owner Kiran Verma of Kiran’s are executive chef Dominick Lee of Poitín, David Cordua of David & Michael Cordúa Events (formerly of Cordúa Restaurant Group), along with Drake Leonards of Eunice, Martin Stayer of Nobie’s and Jody Stevens of Jodycakes.
Urban Harvest is a 25-year-old nonprofit dedicated to expanding urban farming and access to fresh produce inside the city’s food deserts. “We’re so excited for this event, especially because this year marks Urban Harvest’s 25th anniversary,” says Tyler Horne, Director of Farmers Markets. “This evening is really a chance for farmers and chefs to connect in a format that no one else does in Houston. Everyone involved in local foods gathers in one place for a fun, casual night – like dining with your best friends.”
Currently, the organization facilitates a network of over 125 community gardens around the Houston area. These gardens serve to feed communities, instill valuable farming skills and stock shelters, food pantries and soup kitchens throughout Houston.
All of the Sunday Supper proceeds benefits Urban Harvest’s ongoing missions. Tickets start at $150 for a single seat or $2,500 for a “Chiffonade Table” that seats 10 and includes sponsor benefits.
