5/10/15 Speed Diner

Chefs for Equality; Dock5 at Union Market; Speed Diner

An exciting new feature at Chefs for Equality in 2017 was the “5/10/15 Speed Diner,” — 5 dishes/10 chefs/15 minutes — curated by chef Erik Bruner-Yang. Chefs for Equality ticket holders can purchase 15-minute time slots at two, diner-style, eight-person counters, created by Amaryllis Floral + Event Design in front of the Dock5 entrance. Guests enjoyed a specialty cocktail and a mini 5-course tasting menu prepared and served by five pairs of celebrity chefs.

Seng Luangrath, Padaek, and Bobby Pradachith, Thip Khao
