An exciting new feature at Chefs for Equality this year is 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. Once seated, guests will enjoy a specialty cocktail and a mini 5-course tasting menu prepared and served by five pairs of celebrity chefs. The “5/10/15 Speed Diner” is a separate ticket option for Chefs for Equality ticket holders, available as a $50 per person add-on. Seatings are at 6:00, 6:30, 7:00, and 7:30 p.m. Purchase time slots at hrc.im/ChefsTickets and enjoy your 15 minutes of fab!
