Tonight: Governor's Culinary Challenge

Posted By on Mon, Apr 29, 2013 at 3:39 PM


Still time to get tickets to tonight's Governor's Culinary Challenge, 6:30-9 p.m. at the Capital Hotel. So who's cooking? Glad you asked: Gilbert Alaquinez, the Governor's Mansion chef; Stephen Burrow, 42 Restaurant; Capi Peck, Trio's; Donnie Ferneau (formerly of Ferneau's); Mark Abernathy, Local Luna; Joel Antunes, Capital Hotel; Lee Richardson (formerly of the Capital Hotel); Peter Brave, Brave New Restaurant; Brian Deloney, Maddie's; Jason Knapp, chef at the University of Central Arkansas. All will prepare their own dishes to display their distinct styles.

Joining the chefs will be TV personalities and First Lady Ginger Beebe. The event is part of the American Culinary Federation Central Regional Conference here.

So here's why we're talking food on Eye Candy: The event benefits the Thea Foundation's programs for arts education in Arkansas. Tickets are $100; buy them at the online site above.
